National film festivals have a very important value in bringing the public closer to the filmmakers. They have very diverse themes and are distributed throughout numerous cities in the country, many of which do not even have movie theaters. There, you can see new and inaccessible material since in many cases it is material that does not circulate in commercial rooms or platforms. For this reason, many people come to these spaces to see content that is different from what they are used to.
One of the most resonant cases is that of Carton, the International Festival of Animated Shortswhich closed its eleventh edition last Saturday with an awards ceremony that took place at the Science Cultural Centerfrom the City of Buenos Aires, to a full room.
“Carton’s last day was memorable for several reasons. On the one hand, because we had the activity Animators of the future, in which the students of the animation career of the UNSAM and the IDAC presented their graduation theses, closing the circle that we opened on Opening Day when we screened the short recovered from Quirino Cristiani. In other words, we went from the very roots of animation to the future, which from what we could see is very promising,” he commented. Diego Cabarcosone of the organizers of the festival
And he added: “Regarding the award ceremony, it was an incredible afternoon because the most important animators in Argentina were present, who have been accompanying the festival since its inception in 2011, when nobody knew us. Something we value very much. The task of each shortlist of jurors was not easy, but the final result was impeccable. When one sees the list of recognized shorts and who is behind those works, we feel super proud of the result. It was a great festival.”
The call for this edition received films from 108 countries and had an official selection of 190 short films, 132 of which were organized in eight competitions and sought to promote the exhibition of Argentine cinema since it had 117 productions of national origin.
In addition, the audiovisual material of the festival could be seen online through the platform October TV for the whole country and had as headquarters The Tribe Shows Baremblematic place where the festival was conceived, the CCultural Center of Science and this year added to Municipal Institute of Cinematographic Art (IDAC), in Avellaneda.
