»Fénix Award to Ibero-American Criticism« Goes to Jorge Ayala Blanco
FIPRESCI and Cinema23 have announced that the 2015 »Fénix Award to Ibero-American Criticism« goes to the Mexican critic and professor Jorge Ayala Blanco.
This year’s award, conferred by the International Federation of Film Critics to acknowledge the contribution to film criticism in Ibero-America, is an homage to Jorge Ayala Blanco’s honest, lucid and ludic career; to his prose, which is as idiosyncratic as it is universal; and to the intelligence of his gaze, which he has offered his readers and students in over 50 years of uninterrupted career through his weekly critiques in the main Mexican media, his more than thirty books, and his teaching.
The award was announced at the Morelia Film Festival, along with other special recognitions that will be presented during the second edition of the Fénix Ibero-American Awards ceremony, which will take place in Mexico City, on November 25th.
The Fénix Ibero-American Awards (http://www.premiosfenix.com) aim to provide visibility and recognition of the cinema made in Latin America, Spain and Portugal. They were created by Cinema23 (http://www.cinema23.com), an association of professionals that promotes, supports and raises awareness for the region’s film culture. FIPRESCI has partnered with Cinema23 for the Fénix Award to Ibero-American Criticism, which in the initial 2014 edition was granted to Brazilian writer José Carlos Avellar.
