Due to the exceptional situation in which we are, caused by COVID-19 pandemic, we are forced to cancel all the public events scheduled for May 6, 7, 8 and 9 on the occasion of the Awards Ceremony of the 30th Edition.

We have gone through months with a lot of hard work and, above all, with many hopes placed on this edition in which we were preparing special moments to share with all of you; but the drift of events has led us to make this difficult decision based on a criterion of social responsibility.

As you all know, the activities we organize (talks, exhibitions, screenings, Awards Ceremony, and so on.) involve the movement and the massive turnout of contestants, fans and general public (in the last edition, winners from sixteen countries travelled to Asturias from all continents). All this goes against what is recommended by the authorities to deal with this COVID-19 pandemic.

Once this crisis has been overcome, we will assess the possibility of carrying out the activities planned for the 30th anniversary celebration. If it is not possible in the coming months, we will include them in the 31st Edition that will be convened on September 1, 2020.

Our solidarity with all those affected by this COVID-19 pandemic and our recognition for all the professionals who are working tirelessly to minimize the effects and provide assistance to those who need it most.
With best wishes

Memorial María Luisa
