Caetano's 'Bolivia' takes inaugural kudos

HUELVA, Spain — An international jury has awarded the first Luis Bunuel prize to Argentinean pic “Bolivia,” helmed by Adrian Caetano and produced by Matias Mosteirin and Caetano.

Created by the Federation of Ibero-American Film and Audiovisual Producers (Fipca) and Spain’s Producers Audiovisual Rights Management Entity (Egeda), the nod will be presented to the best Spanish, Portuguese or Latin-American film released from July of the previous year to June of the current.

This year’s jury includes Berlin Fest director Dieter Kosslick; Sundance Fest director Geoffrey Gilmore; Marie-Pierre Macia, former director of Cannes’ Directors Fortnight; Andrea Martini, director of the Venice Fest Critics Week; and Manuel Perez Estremera, director of Sogecable’s film content.

Finalists for the award were Spaniard Vicente Aranda’s “Juana la Loca” (Mad Love); Maryse Sistach’s “Perfume de violetas,” from Mexico; Brazil’s “Lavoura Arcaica,” by Luiz Fernando Carvalho; “El bien esquivo,” from Peru’s Augusto Tamayo; and Uruguay’s “Corazon de fuego,” by Diego Arsuaga.

Kudos will be awarded today during the 28th Latin American Film Festival, which opened Saturday with a screening of Carlos Sorin’s “Historias minimas.”

Pic has added to its Mifed sales (Daily Variety, Nov. 5) with an all-rights deal for Benelux with Cinemien.
