For their work on different films, for the art they have made of their profession, these three Mexicans were welcomed by the attendees to this cinema party in Morelia.

Eugenio Caballero, Oscar-winning Mexican art director for Pan’s Labyrinth; Marina de Tavira, Oscar nominated for Best Supporting Actress for the film Roma, and Diana Bracho, one of the Mexican actresses with the longest trajectory, since she has already a 70 year career in cinema, theater and television, received the affection and applause of the people who, on tiptoes and slipping through the crowd, wanted to see these national idols and take a picture with them.

The armchair unveiling is a tradition that the FICM celebrates each year; it is granted to guests and special guests as well as members of the festival’s jury. It is a tribute that remains in movie theater number 4 of Cinépolis Centro, where the rest of the year —when the cinema returns to its daily life— the public can sit on those armchairs named with figures that have made history in cinema.
