Media Coverage national and international coverage by South American TV channels, press, specialist publications

Specific Characteristics Recognized by FIAPF (International Federation of Film Producers Associations) as Competitive Feature Film Festival (so-called "A-Festival").

Evaluation Due to the large economic problems in Argentina and changing artistic directors, Mar del Plata - the only "A" festival in South America - has quite some problems in maintaining the quality of its program and attracting international interest.
