2nd Argentine Film Festival @ARGFilmFest to expand to 3 venues this April
Following the sell-out success of its first edition last year, the 2nd Argentine Film Festival, London will take place this coming April 17th – 21st, and will expand to 3 venues: Ritzy Cinema, Hackney Picturehouse and Cineworld Haymarket.
The festival, which launches on Malbec World Day April 17th, will continue with the Ritzy as its flagship venue, where it will screen an expanded programme of 10 outstanding contemporary features from and about Argentina.
Further screenings will take place across Hackney Picturehouse and Cineworld Haymarket, and the programme will also include a selection of short films from Argentina’s most exciting new directors, as well as live music and other special events.
“We are delighted to be back for our second edition, and look forward to introducing Argentine cinema to new audiences in Hackney and the West End,” said Sofia Serbin de Skalon, the Argentine Film Festival’s Director “The success of the festival last year proved there is a receptive audience for Argentine films in London. With these new sites we hope to further connect with local communities, while at the same time continuing to develop our partnership with the Picturehouse, and Cineworld chains, and consolidating a space for high-quality Argentine films to be seen in the UK.”
The full programme for the 2nd Argentine Film Festival will be announced shortly.
