The Guadalajara International Film Festival is a week-long film festival held each March in the Mexican city of Guadalajara since 1986. The festival is considered the most prestigious film festival in Latin America and among the most important Spanish language film festivals in the world. The festival is the premier showcase for new work from Mexican and international independent filmmakers.
The presence in Guadalajara of delegates from other important festivals from around the world has helped Mexican film to have a strong international presence in the last twenty years. The Festival has also helped to revitalize the careers of some older more established Mexican and English speaking artists like Arturo Ripstein, Gabriel Figueroa, María Félix, Jaime Humberto Hermosillo, Silvia Pinal, Ignacio López Tarso, Ana Ofelia Murguía, Felipe Cazals, Jorge Fons, Katy Jurado, and Ismael Rodríguez as well as many others. An international jury grants the "Mayahuel" award to the winners in a range of categories.
