Ramirez

CEO / General Director

Ramirez runs Cinepolis, one of the world’s leading theater exhibition companies — and a main backer of the Morelia International Film Fest — with operations spanning Mexico, Brazil, Spain, India, the U.S., Colombia, Chile, Argentina, Peru and Central America. Asked in 2016 about his plans to expand even farther, Ramirez said he wants to stick with the places where he already has a presence and consolidate that market. The company has made itself known by upping the viewing experience with lower prices, higher-end screening venues and multiplexes, a rarity in many countries. Cinepolis also nurtures its distribution arm, which launched in 2015 with Jonas Cuaron’s “Desierto” — the film went on to grab a slew of nominations for Mexico’s highest film award, the Ariel.
