20th Mar Del Plata International Film Festival
Argentina, March 10 - March 20 2005
Under the direction of filmmaker Miguel Pereira, the traditional festival (this year in its 20th edition) tries successfully to slip off the image as a glamour and star event which earlier directors had tried to impose, more or, mostly, less successfully. In the kurort of Mar del Plata, you could see a good selection of international films, and of course the festival organizers called attention in particular for Latin American and Argentinean films. The winner of our prize: A Year Without Love (Un año sin amor) by Anahi Berneri (Argentina).
