21 Nov Juana Acosta honored by the Cali Film Festival and the Mayor of Cali.
Juana Acosta has enjoyed a weekend full of acknowledgement and appreciation in her native city. First of all, she received recognition from the Cali Film Festival in honor of her career and then by the City of Santiago de Cali where she was given a tribute along with Barbet Schroedern.
With the presence of prominent personalities, the City of Cali, gave a special homage to Juana for her support of Hispanic-American cinema and for bringing Cali values to a higher level internationally.
“Today, is a very special night for me. It is a tremendous honor to be surrounded by so many people who I love. I left Cali 23 years ago, following a dream I believed in firmly and for which I have worked so hard to attain. For me, success is the power to live from what I love to do and to enjoy each film as if it were my first, with the same level of nervousness and the same enthusiasm; it is to have a family who have always supported me and have always been my accomplices in everything I do; it to have a team of people who work with me, who I feel proud of day after day”, Juana expressed upon receiving the homage.
