FestiFreak: Argentinian Experimental Short Films

Short url: 


The International Independent Film Festival of La Plata Festifreak was born 17 years ago in the province of Buenos Aires (Argentina) and has become a reference festival within the Argentine film circuit as a genuine meeting point between filmmakers, films and audiences. FestiFreak Expanded is a section of the festival that celebrates other forms of cinema, experiments with modes, processes and materials. It explores hybridizations, interactivities, performances, artworks that challenge and break the canons of cinema, building different modes of expression, appropriation and resignification.

Argentinian Experimental Short Films

In this program of Argentinian experimental short films, we start from the appreciation of the beautiful and the simple, the pure and natural, from the interior to the exterior, from day to night, from the private to the public, from the garden to the city, from silence to bustle, from peace to chaos. Crossing the poem as a linguistic and manifest discourse, evolving towards an aesthetic detachment that understands how images circulate and how they are organized to create a work, generate opacity and a new meaning. Surreal relationships that leave marks of identity.
