Guadalajara FF Cine Latino Award at PSIFF: The FICG Kicks Off the Year with the Presentation of an Award in California

The Guadalajara International Film Festival (FICG) is taking part in the year’s first celebration of the seventh art—the Palm Springs International Film Festival—where it is slated to present the Cine Latino Award to the best Iberoamerican film screened at the 24th edition of the California festival, which will run from January 3rd to 14th, 2013.

The award is accompanied by a cash prize of US$5,000 contributed by the Guadalajara International Film Festival and the University of Guadalajara Foundation/USA located in Los Angeles, California.

The Cine Latino Award highlights the enormous creativity of new talents in the world of Iberoamerican cinema, at the same time underlining the commitment of the FICG and the University of Guadalajara Foundation/USA to the consolidation of culture and the arts in the region and to the wider interchange of ideas within a global context.

I will have the pleasure of being on the jury along with Juan Carlos Arciniegas (CCN en Español), a journalist with an established career in the area of motion picture and entertainment criticism and analysis—and Iván Trujillo Bolio, director of the Guadalajara International Film Festival.

Listed below are the 22 films eligible for the award. They include some of the productions from Iberoamerican countries nominated by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences in the Foreign Language Film category of the 85th Academy Awards, to be held on February 24th, 2013.
