Various media have made headlines about the difficult situation that the organizers of the Ariel Awards. Headlines like this surprised the world of Aztec cinema: “Ariel Awards 2023 could not be held due to “serious financial crisis””.
But it seems that the story could change imminently thanks to the filmmaker Guillermo del Torowho through Twitter released the following messages:
“Everyone watching the game, but I throw this. Without going into politics. To find solutions and maintain the Ariels for those who make a cinema that proposes and gives presence to Mexico: I personally offer to cover the total cost of the Ariel statuettes”.
He added: “I offer to help the ceremony as much as possible. And I ask for dialogue between @AcademyCineMx Y @alefrausto to see what else is missing. The academy and the films it stimulates are NOT the ones that the bots use as an argument- they are the ones that fight for screen time and that maintain -our cinema- that art form, very real and highly valued- and always in danger”.
“I enter I’ve been calling @LeticiaHuijara and I follow her to give me a DM. I join. I don’t rest anyone. Solutions have to be found. Guilt doesn’t work. Solutions help. Go for it”.
Here we leave you the message and the thread created with which Guillermo del Toro joins as a solution:
