Year after year, BAFICI consolidates its status as one of the world’s most prominent film festivals, placed as it is in a privileged and distinguished position on the international film agenda.
The Festival is widely regarded as an essential vehicle for promoting independent filmmaking, showcasing its most innovative, risk-taking and committed films. In the span of a comprehensive programming, it comprises several cultural expressions and gathers acclaimed directors and new talents in a dynamic atmosphere.
With a wide range of films including Argentine, Latin American and worldwide premieres as well as well-deserved retros, BAFICI is the greatest, most prestigious event for independent cinema in Latin America.
The 2014 final figures show a turnout increase and the consolidation of the Festival as a major date in the City’s rich cultural calendar.

The 17th edition will offer a comprehensive program rich in variety and artistic quality to attract once again large audiences eager to fill the City’s theaters to capacity.
The Festival’s growth has also translated into a larger number of venues all across Buenos Aires. All our neighbors can enjoy first-rate movies in the different districts of the City.
