Making his directorial debut, actor-turned-producer Daniel Guzman, took home the top gong for his film A cambio de nada (Exchange for Anything).
The film cleaned up, claiming a trio of awards, including best picture and best director, while supporting actor Antonio Bachiller claimed the prize for his performance.
Meanwhile Elsa Olivero claimed the best supporting actress award for her role in La deuda (Oliver’s deal), while Mexican movie El comienzo del tiempo (The Beginning of Time) claimed the award for best South American film.
