AWARDS NIGHT AT FICG30

 

The Mayahuel Silver Award for Life’s Work was handed out during the opening ceremony of the 30th annual Guadalajara International Film Festival. The award is one of the most important in Mexican film and is given to the industry’s most important contributors in recognition of their long and successful careers.

This year the award was given to actress, screenwriter and director Isela Vega, who has unquestionably made important contributions to Mexican film.

Isela began her career in 1960, quickly standing out for her naturalness on camera. Some of her roles in film include SOS Conspiración bikini; Mujeres, mujeres, mujeres; Las pecadoras; La cama; and Las sicodélicas, among others.

The Mayahuel Silver Award placed a spotlight on her talent and was handed to her in one of the most iconic ceremonies in Mexican film, in which she received the award from Jalisco’s Secretary of Culture, Myriam Vachez.

In addition, tribute was paid to Jaime Humberto Hermosillo, a filmmaker and the festival’s founder. “The impact of this festival has made people think that I was born here (although I am from Aguascalientes) but having lived here for thirty years has been favorable to the development of cinematographic culture,” said Jaime Humberto.

The career of the controversial director has marked a turning point in the Mexican film industry, and the event could not continue without paying him proper tribute.
