Gigi Guermont GEMS Audience Award

The Miami Film Festival GEMS Audience Award is dedicated to the loving memory of Genevieve “Gigi” Guermont, who battled cystic fribrosis throughout her young life.

Cherished by all who knew her, Gigi’s indomitable spirit was matched only by her deep love for the arts. Gigi was a passionate supporter of Miami’s cultural institutions, and was an especially dedicated friend to the Festival, serving actively on our Host Committee. No matter where she was in her journey battling Cystic Fibrosis, we could always count on Gigi’s support.

We are grateful for each moment we were able to share with Gigi, and will continue to remember her fondly and frequently.
