Academia Mexicana de Artes y Ciencias Cinematográficas

The Academia Mexicana de Artes y Ciencias Cinematográficas ("The Mexican Academy of Film Arts and Sciences") was founded on July 3, 1946 in Mexico City.


The following people were present before a notary public during the signing of the document:

This was a moment where the movie industry in Mexico was going through its peak. The year before, alone, 85 movies had been made, a record figure even today. The purpose for creating the Academy was to promote advancements in the arts and sciences of film-making, as well as to give public recognition and to outstanding film productions and promote future research.

In practice, however, most of the efforts of the Academy went on to recognize the best films with its award: the Ariel. Every year, from 1947 to 1958, the Ariel was awarded. After 1958 the number of productions fell considerably and it was not until 1972 when the ceremony was held again, and it has every year until the present year.
