From France to Latin America: San Francisco Festival

user
The San Francisco International Film FestivalBence NanayFor decades, the San Francisco Film Festival has been probably the most unusual film festival in the United States.

London Latin America 3rd Film Festival

user
Discovering Latin America Film FestivalLondon November 25 - December 5London may seem an unlikely place for a Latin American film festival. Most of the Argentinean, Cuban and Uruguayan films that have won festival prizes in the last couple of years have never been distributed in London (as a matter of fact, outside of Latin America, most of these films have only been distributed in Paris).
