i´m glad that you know Sarli/Bo films (for those of
you that don´t know, the argentinian Russ Meyer).
any of you have seen films by experimental filmmakers
Claudio Caldini or Narcisa Hirsch? they re really
great. Caldini´s last mayor retrospective was held at
the 2003 Oberhausen Short Film Competition. if you
have the opportunity, be sure of seeing some of his
and her super 8/ single 8 films.

i wasn´t aware of that grants you mentioned, but,
regarding Argentina, Tierra del fuego and Patagonia, i
can tell you that the goverment recently opened the
first film theatre in the Antartida (!). sure it be
nice to watch Brakhage´s Black Ice there...

By the way, the Buenos Aires International Independent
Film Festival (BAFICI) takes place the first two weeks
of April.
