MTV Latin America renames kudofest

Awards take place in Mexico City

MIAMI — MTV Latin America is celebrating its tenth anniversary in the territory by renaming its May 28 Mexican pix kudofest “MTV Movie Awards Mexico.”

MTV launched “Pelicula de la Gente” (Film of the People) in 2001. The awards, which take place in Mexico City, are not as elaborate as the U.S. show but may be a precursor to a bigger event.
