Professional Area Presentation

The 15th BAFICI is pleased to invite all previously accredited industry professionals to participate in the different activities of the Professional Area. The aim of these activities is to connect the representatives of selected films and projects with sales agents, distributors and festival programmers, as well as to provide tools for professional development. Special attention will be given to Argentine films, considering that the Festival has established itself as a launching pad for emerging local filmmakers.

The Professional Area office will be located at the BAFICI Meeting Point, which this year will be the Centro Cultural Recoleta, and will serve as a professional workspace, equipped with Wi-Fi and meeting areas for the use of accredited members.

There will be one-on-one consultancy appointments with Argentine professionals with a long track record in independent filmmaking. This free activity requires advance registration on this website. Also, several open discussions will be held about specific topics.

The Professional Area, through the freely distributed and downloadable (from this site) professional guide, will provide detailed profile and contact information of national and international professionals participating at the 15th BAFICI.

Additionally, on the days prior to the beginning of the Festival, we will announce – on this website – the list of movies that are copyright free in Argentina and the region, with the aim of increasing trading opportunities for the feature films featured in the different sections of the program.
