This year´s BAFICI (Buenos Aires Independent Film Festival) looks like it finally got its act together. While the festival has always been the premier Argentine event for viewing the best in independent world cinema, it has often been plagued by disorder (programs being distributed after the festival begins, a mad rush for tickets). This year, the festival programs are well organized (with a map of all the cinemas!) and beautifully printed. Finally, going to the festival won´t be the filmlovers´ equivalent of climbing mount Everest.
A newcomer in the programme of the 11th Buenos Aires International Independent Film Festival is BAFICITO (literally “little BAFICI”), a new section aimed at children who will face the task of choosing the winning film by the audience vote.
We´ll be going to various talks, events and films and reporting back on what we think, so stay tuned!
