During the same period, from 2-8 June, Buenos Aires will be hosting the third edition of the Semana de Cine Italiano, and expects a huge audience of both viewers and distributors. The rendezvous (which takes place at the Palermo Cinepark) has chosen nine movies, and the event has now become a real springboard for Italian films that have just been bought by local distributors. Following the massive success of the first two editions, Argentinian distributors have become the key players at this gathering, which offers strong support for theatrical releasing in their country. In fact, besides taking care of the Spanish subtitles for the movies, the Istituto Luce Cinecittà is also inviting the talents from the Italian titles to Buenos Aires, enabling some high-profile promotion that will not be a burden on the budgets of their respective marketing activities. 

Audiences will thus be able to enjoy the national premieres of Quo vado? [+see also:

Meanwhile, Arianna, Assolo and Don’t Be Bad will be on offer to Argentinian distributors, who seem to be taking a renewed interest in Italian cinema. 

The Istituto Luce Cinecittà and Filmitalia organise the Semana de Cine Italiano in conjunction with the Italian Institute of Culture and the Institute for Foreign Trade.
