Each year, the Guanajuato International Film Festival along with the Women in Film and Television Association, with the support of WIFT International, deliver the MUSA to two standout women in the industry.
Founded in 2002, WIFT seeks to recognize the work of women in audiovisual arts, as well contribute to their promotion. With these guidelines, all the women who work in this field are highlighted, be they producers, screenwriters, directors, cinematographers, editors, actresses, makeup artists, costume designers, art directors, sound designers and cultural promoters among other fields.
This year, GIFF will pay tribute to Pilar Pellicer, an actress renowned inside and outside of Mexico for her work on sets and sceneries. We remember her work in Nazarín, by Master Luis Buñuel, and La Choca, from Mexican cinema legend Emilio “El Indio” Fernández, for which she won a Silver Goddess, an Ariel and a Heraldo in the same year. We are also honored to pay tribute to Carmen Armendáriz, an innovative Mexican producer who work on the small screen is nurtured by a tireless delivery and commitment to renovating creativity.
Join us at recognizing these great women of film and television today at 13:30 hrs at Teatro Principal in the city of Guanajuato.
