Mar del Plata moves to December

Festival hopes to get better titles

Mar del Plata, Latin America’s only FIAPF Category One festival, has new dates: Dec. 4-14, 2008.

Mar del Plata used to take place in March. The new fest berth will see Argentina’s Pantalla Pinamar fest moving to March. The new December dates catches Argentina at work before its January holidays, and with splendid summer weather. Avoiding a head-to-head with Mexico’s Guadalajara fest, and sufficiently distanced from the crush of late summer and fall fests, it may well allow Mar del Plata to snag better titles.

Fest director will be vet filmmaker Jose A. Martinez Suarez, an institution in Argentine cinema.

— John Hopewell and Charles Newbery
