It is our honor to unveil the Gigi Guermont GEMS Audience Award. This award, presented in loving memory of Genevieve “Gigi” Guermont, will be presented for the first time at GEMS 2015. Gigi was a brilliant, rare, and timeless individual, and it is only fitting that our GEMS Audience Award bear her name.
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.
Congratulations to our Gigi Guermont GEMS Audience Award winner The Clan by Pablo Trapero. Read more in The Hollywood Reporter.
