Several media outlets have filled headlines about the difficult situation faced by the organizers of the Ariel Awards. Headlines such as this one surprised the Aztec film world: “Premios Ariel 2023 may not take place due to “serious financial crisis.”

But it seems that the story could change imminently thanks to filmmaker Guillermo del Toro, who, via Twitter, launched the following messages:

“Everyone watching the game, but I throw this without getting into politics. To seek solutions and keep the Ariels for those who make a cinema that proposes and gives presence to Mexico: I offer to cover the total cost of the Ariel statuettes”.

He added: “I offer to help the ceremony as much as possible. And I ask for dialogue between @AcademiaCineMx and @alefrausto to see what else is missing. The academy and the films it stimulates are NOT the ones that the bots use as an argument- they are the ones that fight for screen time and that keep -our cinema- that art form, very real and very valued- and always in danger.”

“I’m in. I’ve been calling @LeticiaHuijara and I’m following her to DM me. I join in. I don’t subtract anyone. We have to find solutions. Blames don’t help. Solutions help. Let’s do it”.

Here we leave you the message and the thread created with which Guillermo del Toro adds to a solution:
