In partnership with INCAA (Instituto Nacional de Cine y Artes
Audiovisuales), we are proud to showcase every year, the very best
films from Argentina.
Argentina is well known for its Tango dance and music, also famous for
its food, its unique beef meat, delicate wines and of course its
achievements in the world’s game: Football. Its Cinema however,
historically the most developed in Latin America... for over 100
years, is surprisingly less known.
In the year 2011, over 110 feature films were produced in Argentina,
making it the most prolific producer of films in South America, you
have probably seen “ The Secret in their eyes” – Oscars® Best Foreign
Language Film at the 82nd Academy Awards or have just recently heard
about Bérénice Bejo for her role in the multi-awarded “The Artist”, it
also true that many others films and many other Argentine talented
artists have won awards all around the world a reflection of a lively
Film industry enjoying a ‘renaissance’ in film.
We are very excited to bring to the big screen in Australia the very
best of Argentine films, sit back and enjoy the Drama, Romance, Humor,
Love and the Passion.
Bienvenidos, have a wonderful time:
AFF AU & NZ 2012 Festival Director
