Festival: criticisms and reports of BAFICI 2022

Organized by the Ministry of Culture of the City of Buenos Aires, the Buenos Aires International Independent Film Festival will be held from April 19th to May 1st [23] BAFICI. In its 2022 edition, the festival, one of the most important in Latin America, brings together the best of national and international directors. For 13 days, the cinema returns to the traditional theaters of downtown Buenos Aires, supporting the reactivation of Corrientes Street. It will have a program designed for all audiences: 290 films with more than 450 face-to-face, of which 223 films will also be screened online, and more than 60 special activities, in more than 15 locations. The programming, the links for booking the ticket and the catalog can be found on the web we live the culture.
