Jury Duty for Conner Troxclair ’15

The animation student and co-founder of the LMU Cinema Club talks to LogLines about serving as the first-ever U.S. student representative on a special jury at FICG.

What were you doing in Guadalajara? I was offered the chance through the film school to participate as a juror in the Guadalajara International Film Festival (FICG) over ten days in March. Specifically, I was serving on the Mezcal Jury, which is a jury of students, both local and international, that selects the best feature Mexican film from those screened at the festival, including documentary, animation and live action. This award is considered the biggest at the festival, as it honors the festival’s beginnings; this was the 30th edition of FICG, which began less as a festival and more of a celebration of the best of Mexican cinema from the year. So as the festival has grown from its local roots to become internationally recognized, this award maintains its original intent.
