Buenos Aires Lab #BAFICI together with #Cannes2013 @mdf_cannes will showcase 6 New Latin American Directors @INCAA_ARGENTINA
Cannes is spotlighting six young Latin American directors in the fest’s first focus on yet-to-be-completed movies.
The showcase, titled BAL Goes to Cannes: Bafici Work in Progress, will take place May 21, organized by Cannes’ Film Market and the Buenos Aires Lab, the industry forum of the Buenos Aires Intl. Independent Film Festival (Bafici).
The list includes Santiago Palavecino’s psychological drama “Some Girls” (which won an Arte Prize mid-week), and the biggest production in the mix, “After the Rain,” from Brazil’s Claudio Marques and Marilia Hughes, a preppy high-school drama set as Brazil emerges from military dictatorship.
The others are “Por las plumas,” a deadpan dramedy from Costa Rica’s Neto Villalobos; docu-feature “La once,” from Chile’s Maite Alberdi, and “Reimon,” from Argentina’s Rodrigo Moreno, the best-known of the six after winning Berlin’s Alfred Bauer Award in 2006 with “The Custodian.”
Upcoming next year is another international partnership aimed at enhancing the creativity and raising the profile on new films from Latin America and BAL. In this partnership, the Valdivia Festival’s Australab in Chile and the Rotterdam Festival’s Cinemart market will partner on a year-round Latin American project development program.
