“Blancanieves,” by Spanish director Pablo Berger, took Best Ibero-American Picture honors at the Ariel awards, the Mexican film industry’s equivalent of the Oscars.

Berger’s silent, black-and-white version of the Snow White story garnered multiple trophies earlier this year at Spain’s Goya Awards.

“El Premio” (The Prize), from writer-director Paula Markovitch, won the Ariels for best picture, first work, original screenplay and editing.

Rodrigo Pla took the best director Ariel for his drama “La Demora” (The Delay).

The best actor prize went to Roberto Sosa for his performance in “El Fantastico Mundo de Juan Orol,” while Ursula Pruneda got the nod for best actress on the strength of her work in “El Sueno de Lu.”

Daniel Gimenez Cacho was named best supporting actor for his role in “Colosio, el asesinato.”

Angelina Pelaez, who appeared in “La Vida Precoz y Breve de Sabina Rivas,” received the Ariel for best supporting actress.
