Absolutely established as an essencial celebration of the European cinema in the Southern Cone, Pantalla Pinamar is already preparing its fourteenth edition. From March 10th thru 17th, 2018, by the end of the southern summer, once again film factories from that continent will have a great promotional display cabinet carefully mounted in that gorgeous beach on the Argentine Atlantic coast. A scenario so proper for both the new launches of the most traditional and powerful cinematographies from the Old World and also for the discovery of the last products from those origins with a less usual presence or with emerging audiovisual industries.
As it is always the case, together with a parallel program including the best cinema from the hosting country and the supplementary screenings of works from other geographies, programmed titles in the several sections of the Argentine-European Film Encounter will enjoy numerous and avid audiences, clearly exigent and receptive. Next to that valuable audience, there will be, again, the professionals sent by the most relevant press media, the agents from the main importing and distributing societies, and the delegates of the biggest exhibiting circuits.
The authorities of the film industry, representatives of all of its sectors, directors, producers, scriptwriters, and actors of the programmed works, both local and visitors, will share eight intense days of meetings, interchanges and integration. And members of the diplomatic representations from the countries with a special protagonism in the new edition will add their contribution to these gatherings with their already classic receptions summoning all guests around.
Pantalla Pinamar 2018. A party of the cinema, and more: a bet to shared knowledge, future and growth.
