Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico – In a surprising turn of events, the Ariel Awards, the prestigious Mexican film awards celebrating cinematic excellence, are making a groundbreaking move for their 65th edition.

These films have not only captivated audiences but have also impressed critics and industry insiders with their remarkable storytelling and artistic prowess.
Set to take place at the Teatro Degollado in Guadalajara, Jalisco, on September 9, what makes the 2023 Ariel Awards even more accessible to cinephiles is the availability of many nominated films on digital streaming platforms.
