Traveling BAFICI - Venues
The 14th edition of Traveling BAFICI, organized by the Ministry of Culture of the Buenos Aires City Government in collaboration with local institutions, will be held at different cities of the country between July and December 2012. BAFICI is a cultural event that has played a role in improving and transforming the ways of watching and making cinema in Argentina. The diversity and aesthetic risk-taking of its programming and the possibility of bringing viewers, film critics and filmmakers closer to new trends in today’s and tomorrow’s cinema have contributed to the Festival’s increasing prominence in our city and the entire world of film.
One of the main aims of BAFICI is to spread out that power of transformation further beyond the Festival’s two-week duration every year and the borders of the City of Buenos Aires. Traveling BAFICI is an effort to expand its offer to the most important cities in Argentina, which are increasingly demanding access to these films. The Festival was created in 1999, year of its first edition, to compensate for the necessity of alternative exhibition spaces in other urban centers and villages of the country for film works that are usually off not available on the commercial circuit.
Traveling BAFICI will feature films from different sections of the 14th edition of the Festival, most prizewinning films and a variety of Argentine movies. In addition to the program of films, Argentine directors and producers will travel to the different cities to hold meetings with the public. The presence of guests at these events is substantial since, apart from the film exhibitions and the post-screening question-and-answer sessions, the different venues will host workshops, roundtables and different activities open to everyone.
