The first ARGENTINE FILM FESTIVAL in London will launch at the Ritzy Picturehouse this coming April 19-22nd and will be the first festival of films from Argentina to be held in a commercial cinema in the UK.
Capitalising on the 2010 Best Foreign Picture Oscar for Juan José Campanella’s The Secret in Their Eyes, and the wave of award-winning Argentine films seen across the international festival circuit, the festival will showcase a selection of the best contemporary films from and about Argentina.
“Argentine films have achieved both box-office success and critical acclaim, “ said Sofia Serbin de Skalon, the Festival’s Director. “Films such as Fabien Bielinsky’s Nine Queens or Carlos Sorin’s Bombón el Perro have captivated audiences across the world, while the New Argentine Cinema, under directors such as Pablo Trapero, Lucrecia Martel and Lisandro Alonso has become a benchmark for international film-making, Their footsteps are now being followed by a dynamic new generation of film-makers and our aim is to show the fantastic range of high-quality, engaging films currently being produced, while at the same time offering Londoners a unique insight into Argentina.”
Maria Delgado and Demetrios Matheou, Programmers to the festival commented: “For the last decade London Film Festival’s World Cinema section has provided UK audiences with a major opportunity for seeing Argentine cinema. While possibilities for seeing new work have been limited, for many filmgoers, Argentine directors are currently producing the most exciting national cinema in Latin America. By establishing this festival we believe we will be widening the opportunities for seeing a range of brilliant films, bringing Argentine cinema to an eager audience. “
The full programme for the ARGENTINE FILM FESTIVAL will be announced shortly. For information please visit the festival’s website.
