[eltdf_dropcaps type=”normal” color=”” background_color=””]L[/eltdf_dropcaps]a Casa del Mayorazgo de la Canal was the venue that hosted the conference given by the premiere actress Dolores Heredia, who enthusiastically shared anecdotes of her career and the most relevant details in her role as President of the Mexican Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, a position she has held since October 2015.
Moderated by film director Roberto Fiesco, the event began with words from Sarah Hoch, executive director of GIFF, who spoke about the important part that the Mexican Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences plays in the national film industry. After that, she invited actress Diana Bracho and filmmaker Jose Antonio de la Riva, both former presidents of AMACC, to speak. With great eloquence, Roberto Fiesco opened the floor for both of these personalitites to speak about their experience and anecdotes from their mandates, where they agreed on the goal of creating a solid, inclusive film community where exhibition and distribution complement the hard work of producers and filmmakers.
When Dolores Heredia arrived, the speech strengthened with that goal of promoting full participation and to re-adjust the rules for the future of film production. Her speech brimmed with humility and focus, as well as surprising insight into the goals she’s maintained from a young age. Later, Diana Bracho and José Antonio de la Riva gave the floor to Dolores Heredia so she could share her experiences under the guidance of Fiesco.
Dolores Heredia’s work is nothing less than the result of optimism and commitment, inclusion and perseverance. She is a disciplined actress, constantly training, with a drive towards risk in choosing characters and physical expressions; the same impulse that drives her work as President of AMACC, an independent organism that, 70 years after it was founded, maintains its spirit that focuses on the strength of our national film industry and defends creative and labor freedoms for Mexican filmmakers.
