Toronto twins with Buenos Aires

City to City program to focus on Argentine city

TORONTO — The new cinema of Buenos Aires, Argentina, will shine at the Toronto Film Festival’s City to City program, fest co-director Cameron Bailey announced Tuesday.

“Now that we’ve seen such strong work from Lucretia Martel, Pablo Trapero, Lisandro Alonso and their peers, here comes a new crop of passionate, impressive filmmakers emerging in Buenos Aires,” Bailey commented.

City to City programmer Lawrie Van de Ven said she and Bailey will travel to Buenos Aires in April.

“The mix of influence from inside and outside the city has produced a flourishing creative community,” she said. “We look forward to getting to know those new voices.”

The City to City slate will be announced in August.

The 36th Toronto Film Festival runs Sept. 8-18.
