Tribute to the “La mujer y el cine” Association
By one of the main actions of its first edition, the UBA INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL (FIC.UBA) will pay tribute to the civil and cultural association “La Mujer y el Cine” (“Women and Cinema”), one of the major spaces dedicated to cinema and and to the struggle for gender equality in Argentina, which this year celebrates its 35th anniversary of hard work and great significance.
As part of this acknowledgement, a feature film will be showcased, produced by “La Mujer y el Cine” and coordinated by Sabrina Farji, with the participation of thirty women filmmakers that will celebrate the 35 years of the entity.
“La Mujer y el Cine” is a civil association –founded in 1988 by María Luisa Bemberg, Lita Stantic, Sara Facio, Susana López Merino, Gabriela Massuh, Marta Bianchi, Beatriz Villalba Welsh and currently presided over by Annamaria Muchnik– that has the objective of stimulating and encouraging the presence of women in the film industry and the audiovisual arts.
Being a result of the “democratic spring” of the 80s, “La Mujer y el Cine” annually organizes a festival that promotes women’s cinema, creating a space for discussion, reflection and exchange, in order to achieve gender equality in the film industry.
