We are ready for tomorrow’s Opening Night for the 1st Argentine Film Festival London.

The programme is packed of amazing films but if you have time for party which we suggest you should check up this two other events also taking place during the festival.

MURGA AND LATIN BEATS NIGHT – Friday April 20th – 8pm – FREE

Following the screening of Alison Murray’s CAPRICHOSOS DE SAN TELMO, which looks at the murga community preparing for carnival in Buenos Aires, get ready for a night of Latin beats Upstairs at the Ritzy, where DJ Sergio Schuchinsky, will take us on a musical tour of Argentina’s coolest sounds: cumbia, candombe, murga, Latin house and electro folk.

TANGO LIGHT / URBAN TANGO – Sunday April 22nd – 6.45 pm

Admission free for silent films ticket holders otherwise £5 on the door

From live guitar performances to the urban rhythms of electro tango the musical tour of Argentina continues with an event tracing the history of tango.  After the screening of a selection of short films from Argentina’s largely unknown silent film era – including a riotous comedy set in the tango underworld – the tango theme continues in the bar Upstairs at the Ritzy with live music and a display of Argentine tango including traditional tango de salon, social tango (danced in the milongas) and tango nuevo (modern or electro tango).

CLOSING FILM – MEDIANERAS – Sunday April 22nd – 8pm

Gustavo Taretto’s MEDIANERAS will close the Argentine Film Festival, and is a romantic comedy with a nod to Woody Allen’s Manhattan where boy fails to meet girl across the crowded cityscape of twenty-first century Buenos Aires.

All ticket holders to the MEDIANERAS screening will receive a complimentary glass of Tilia Malbec or Tilia Salta Torrontes. wine after the film in the bar Upstairs at the Ritzy where the night will continue with more electro tango sounds.
