Discussed much about his move to the neighborhood of Belgrano, its amount of seats and the number of films shown, not well happened the press conference where it was announced would like this new edition, but this BAFICI made it clear that changes are always positive . Since its birth always had changes of locations, perhaps the most emblematic Abasto and Recoleta, in each the removals were generated doubts and uncertainties, but they left always airy and became a key area within the ritual. Why might not be so Belgrano? Selected cinemas probably kept the magic of cinema to the street, neighborhood that is consistent with the direction of the independent film. And that was the most reviewed and praised by the public. Added the Enrique Larreta Museum that was part of the experience giving space for multiple evening events for children with BAFICITO, and the evening outdoors with live shows that convened to Rosario Bléfari or Leo Garcia, to name a few.

A total of 315 titles, between long and short films, formed part of the programming by its artistic director, Javier Porta Fouz. Where 29% of scheduled feature films were raw operas and 100 titles were national, a number of interesting that our filmmakers can show you the local audience their works. In a country that is very limited to level resources for local productions are carried forward, even having a space of diffusion is not minor. The percentage of premières grew from one year to another, implying that more artists seek to present their films at BAFICI. With all this, talk about a festival in doldrums (in relation to the criticisms that he received prior to opening) is very limited: only look around us and understand the economy in which we are immersed, keep a schedule with that amount of films is something to highlight. At a time where each time there are less opportunities for art and culture, these spaces are valuable, not by who organize them but by what they offer to the community. Membership is also something that anyone we like art should do for the preservation of this and other espacios.390.000 people enjoyed the event which featured 37 rooms (adding bars and cultural centers, two rooms of the cinema Gaumont space INCAA, room Lugones, Alliance Française, among others), and the first edition of BAFICI Marathon, an event outdoors in the middle of Av. oath, which made the neighborhood more participate in the festival, with screenings and free activities.
