Colonia Santa Teresa is a small farming town in the south of the province of La Pampa . Like many cities in the province, the customs of the locals are quiet and spaced. On March 4, however, Colonia Santa Teresa will be revolutionized like never before, as the municipality is home to the International Film Festival Documentary - Pampa Doc Fest.
In its official pronunciation, the city announces: “Here we strive for culture and art to flourish too .” That is why, together with the Angular narrative journalism platform and the provincial secretariat of culture, they created this first two-day International Festival . Expectations in the area are huge.
The Ministry of Culture will add its support and awards to participants, which are more than 200. The prizes awarded by a jury specializing in the subject are of a large economic sum . In addition there will be a special mention in each of the sections, without the latter having any financial endowment. The tannas of the festival are as follows:
• Best International Documentary Feature Film Award, with Ar$25,000
• Best International Documentary Short Film Award, with Ar$25,000
• Best Latin American Rurality Documentary Award, endowed with Ar$25.000
• Audience Award Best Documentary (by public vote, whose score will be the average of the votes cast, and with special participation of the Accredited Press. This recognition includes statuette and diploma, not so economic remuneration)
As for the duration of each short film to be presented, it may not be longer than 30 minutes or less than five , while feature films must exceed 30 minutes in length. Migue Roth, a local writer and filmmaker, is at the head of the festival's organization, in order to coordinate aid and support tasks.
In addition to the films that will integrate the various sections, this first edition will feature a wide programme of workshops, masterclasses and special activities accompanied by very good live music . There will be a fair venue with food court, brewery yard, handicrafts and stands with local production.
Among the conditions of the festival, it is indicated that the documentary films to be submitted must have been made after January 1, 2019 . In addition, they must not have commercial premiere in exhibition halls, video, television, audiovisual event in Argentina or VOD platforms.
The category Rurality in Latin America involves documentaries that portray aspects of rural life in Latin America (of any duration; films filmed outside urban contexts will be considered in this category), also made with after January 1, 2019 and have not been commercially released.
From the festival's virtual platform, they say: “They have been long and complicated months for many sectors , but particularly for those who practice crafts linked to art and communication. However, since the coordination of the Festival we do not cease to be excited about the possibility of forging a cultural and meeting space .”
For this and much more, the PAMPA DOC FEST will be a unique and unprecedented event in the province.
