Bertha Navarro

CFF Honorees

Mexican producer Navarro receives the Governor’s Award “in recognition of her commitment to the development and promotion of Mexican films and filmmakers.”

She is closely linked with Tequila Gang partners Guillermo del Toro and Alfonso Cuaron, who co-produced Sebastian Cordero’s “Cronicas” and del Toro’s “Pan’s Labyrinth” with her. Navarro’s credits, which date back to 1972, include del Toro’s “The Devil’s Backbone” and his 1993 breakout hit, “Cronos.”

Navarro is well known for championing tyro filmmakers, especially Antonio Urrutia and his Oscar-nommed short “De tripas, corazon,” and his debut feature “Asesino en serio” (I Murder Seriously). Not that her work is limited to Mexican fare. Navarro has also co-produced pics by John Sayles, Chile’s Andres Wood and Ecuador’s Cordero.

Today, Navarro is encouraged by the quality of Mexican fare but worries about pending fiscal reform. “I hope that new directors in Mexico will be given more opportunities to make films, including the chance to make mistakes,” she says.
