Call for entries for the 14th International African Film Festival in Argentina (FICAA, for its Spanish initials).
We call on film directors and video artists to send material that would contribute to show new depictions on Africa.
The received material will be selected for the 14ht edition of the International African Film Festival in Argentina, which will take place in October 2021 in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
Starting in 2007, Observatorio Sur undertook the “Mirrors and Mirages” International Film Series on and from the African continent. In each edition we have selected films based on different subjects to show and debate on history and actuality in the African world.
Given the current epidemiological situation, this year we are organising a mixed version: online and physical Location. Thus, we are also aiming to reach new audiences, beyond the participants from the city of Buenos Aires who usually come to the cinema.
