Medalla Jodie Foster

The UNAM Film Archive Medal was created in 1987 to acknowledge figures whose work has enriched world film heritage, in all its aspects.
Designed by sculptor Lorenzo Rafael, the UNAM Film Archive Medal is made of 99.9% pure silver extracted during the development process at the Film Archive's laboratories. 

The medal's design shows the coat of arms of the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM) on the front and the Film Archive logo on the back.
Figures such as Juliette Binoche, Isabelle Huppert, Willem Dafoe, Béla Tarr, Paweł Pawlikowski, James Ivory and Olivia Harrison have been presented with the UNAM Film Archive Medal at FICM.

The Medal will be awarded to Jodie Foster on October 26 at 4:15pm at Cinépolis Morelia Centro.

The 21st FICM will take place from October 20 to 29 in Morelia, Michoacán, with online screenings via Canal 22 and FilminLatino.
