Festival Focus : BAFICI

We have teamed up with BAFICI (Buenos Aires Festival Internacional de Cine Independiente) for a special program of films from the past and present of the prestigious Argentinian festival’s program.

As was the case with so many festivals, their 2020 edition was cancelled due to the effects of the Coronavirus pandemic. In response, we joined with the festival programmers to be sure that, with this focus, we were bringing you the best BAFICI has to offer.

From Monday June 22, you can uncover a treasure trove of key works from BAFICI’s recent past—from the last few years as well as from the latest edition that wasn’t to be. You’ll be able to pore over these movies for a full two weeks, part of the largest individual focus on Latin American cinema in our platform’s history.

Our official selection of feature length titles were almost exclusively drawn from the three competitions—International, Latin American, and Argentinian—stretching from 2016 through to the present. These titles include recent work by some of the very best Argentinian or Latin American filmmakers, including Néstor Frenkel, María Álvarez, Sergio Wolf, and Luis 'Hitoshi' Diaz, as well as presenting many vital works from lesser known artists whose star is rising.

Festivals are the incubators for great cinema. We have to ensure that the young films entering our world in 2020 can, for now, survive without them. We’re standing at an historical juncture when not only the world of film festivals but the entire globe is forced into a process of transformation; a transformation whose exact character is as yet unclear to any of us. But we still have movies, and we have to adapt to these shifts and support their makers in whatever ways we can, as viewers, as distributors, as festivals.
