BAL IN CANNES 201322 Wed 2013
Five works in progress selected at the Buenos Aires Lab (BAL), BAFICI’s Latin American co-production market, which celebrated its 10th anniversary in 2013, are currently being shown at the Marché du Film of the Cannes Film Festival, held in the French Riviera. They are Algunas chicas, by Santiago Palavecino (Argentina); Depois da chuva, by Claudio Marques and Marília Hughes (Brazil); La Once, by Maite Alberdi (Chile); Por las plumas, by Neto Villalobos (Costa Rica); and Reimon, by Rodrigo Moreno (Argentina), selected to participate in the first collaboration of this kind with the prestigious international film market that runs in parallel with the famous festival. In this way, BAL consolidates itself as a “key place for Latin American projects,” according to BAFICI Artistic Director Marcelo Panozzo. “The Festival is comprehensively supported by its films: the movies screened and those that are not yet finished, which are at the shooting or editing stage, which are a script or an idea,” he added.
