For the fourth year running, we are supporting Los Cabos International Film Festival as one of its sponsors and, for the first time, we have the opportunity to present three Cinemex Awards –Best Film of México Primero, Best Film of Competencia Los Cabos and the Cinemex Audience Award–, all of this allows us to strengthen our role as a trampoline to bold Mexican filmmakers who have the courage to play in the international arena.”

This award was presented by Rodrigo García, who has directed films such as Things You Can Tell Just by Looking at Her, Nine Lives, Albert Nobs, Mother and Child, and, of course, Last Days in the Desert, starring Ewan McGregor, which had a special screening in this fourth edition of the Festival.
