The highlighted activities of this Edition

In addition to the screenings and competitions, the Festival offers alternative ways to approach cinema from complementary perspectives. These include a forum that aims to raise gender awareness in the sector, two master classes on sound by Lucrecia Martel and Mark Berger, the 100th Anniversary of Ingmar Bergman and a special screening of The Last Indian Attack with live music.





Forum: Cinema and Gender Perspective

For the first time in the history of the Festival, a key space has been created to deliberate on inequalities in cinema among women in the sector. Actresses, directors, producers and other participants can be part of this area of reflection on gender stereotypes, their reproduction in cinema, and their possible deconstruction. An exchange of experiences that seeks to build equality in the different areas of cinema. Moderator: Lic. Analía Barrionuevo.

Sunday 12 and Monday 13 at 10:30 AM in Tronador Concert


Masterclass: Lucrecia Martel - Phonurgia

The director of The Swamp and Zama presents a masterclass about a storytelling reflection on sound as an immersion. After centuries of thinking from the perspective of vision, here we will attempt an approach on time and space from the perspective of sound. An ideal conversation for filmmakers, scriptwriters, writers, and people who suffered disappointments. 

Monday 12th at 6 PM at Tronador Concert


Masterclass: Mark Berger - How to Listen to Movies

Mark Berger, Hollywood sound engineer, winner of four Oscars, will give this talk that will open a new door to the appreciation of films, and give the audience a deeper understanding of how sound works in relation to the image. Using scenes from The Talented Mr. Ripley, you will see how dialogue, music and effects work together to manipulate emotions and improve the impact of the movie. Will be encouraged reactions in real time from the audience.

100 Years of Ingmar Bergman in Argentina

Argentina and Sweden are two nations with a great cinematographic tradition. They are united by a singular element, as ours is one of the first countries to appreciate the value of the great filmmaker Ingmar Bergman: a close, decades-long relationship between the artist and the public, which influenced cinema, theater, psychoanalysis, the fight against censorship and the way of thinking. At the 100th anniversary of his birth, we rescue those ties that brough wo geographically remote countries closer through art.

On one hand, an exhibition is held at the Casa Castagnino Museum for cinema and art lovers that follows the footsteps of Bergman in Argentina, through the posters of the premieres of his films in the country, and also the Bergman 1 in 100 exhibition, which traces its influence in the language of fashion and design. On the other hand, we present 100 Bergman, a collection book with articles by critics and film historians of today's Argentine cinema, under the direction of researcher Raúl Manrupe, and artworks by artists like Augusto Costhanzo, El Niño Rodríguez, Santi Pozzi, Maicas and Spósit.

Eight of his feature films will be screened thanks to the support of the Embassy of Sweden, the Swedish Film Institute and Mirada Distributions.


Restored Argentine Films

To be able to watch restored copies of national films on the screen for the first time is one of the most pleasing proposals of the Festival. Thanks to the work of specialists and professionals, this edition presents the copies of Prisoners of the Land (1939) by Mario Soffici, The Hour of the Furnaces (First part) (1968) by Pino Solanas and Octavio Getino, and Nobody’s Wife (1982) ) of the great Maria Luisa Bemberg. And as if that was not enough, we announce the premiere, as a world premiere, of The Last Indian Attack (1917) by Alcides Greca, 100 years after its premiere, a subversive and avant-garde ethnographic document with which Greca bases the foundations of the anthropological film. The screening of this copy, restored by the Pablo Ducrós Hicken Film Museum that was believed to be lost, is an unmissable event for cinephiles, and will be accompanied by live music by Maia Koening.
