Salma Hayek, Diego Luna, Gael García And Other Mexican Stars Showed The Cannes Film Festival How To Party

The Cannes Film Festival in France is celebrating its 70th anniversary. To commemorate the occasion, festival organizers invited some of film’s most influential names, including American actors such as Leonardo DiCaprio, Jessica Chastain and Will Smith. One group of guests — let’s call them the Mexican delegation — enchanted photographers and showed they were there to PARTY.

Just look at this collection of Mexcellence:

The epic line-up of award-winning Mexicanos inspired the hashtag #Mexicannes.

Buzzfeed Mexico broke down just how many awards there are between everyone in the photo:

But wait, they didn’t just hang out at the red carpet. According to the Hollywood Reporter, Salma Hayek surprised partygoers with a mariachi. Here’s a clip of everyone singing “Cielito Lindo.”

Director Guillermo Del Toro was the star of the show, leading everyone in a sing-along. Around the one minute mark, French actress Isabelle Huppert appears to shoot someone a look that says “I don’t know the words to this, but it’s awesome so I’m gonna keep going.”

They also sang “Mexico Lindo y Querido”…

… And, of course, it wouldn’t be a serenata without an alcohol-fueled rendition of “El Rey.”

Rebecca Ford of The Hollywood Reporter caught a glimpse of Gael García Bernal doing a little shimmy during the performance. ?

All in all, it looks like everyone had a great time. Just look at the grins on BFFs Diego Luna and García Bernal.

Pa’ la próxima, ¡inviten!
