Befilmiff launches as film showcase

Exclusive: New York-based festival veteran Laurence Asseraf is launching the invite-only Be Film International Features Festival as a platform to enable global films to find Us distribution.

This year’s inaugural event runs from October 24-26 in New York and will feature global films with a focus on Argentina.

“What we are trying to accomplish here, is bring home, in an intimate, relaxed, but highly professional setting certain foreign films that might have escaped the eyes of Us distributors while on their tour to all major festivals abroad,” said Asseraf (pictured).

“I knew Argentina very well since I lived there as a child,” said the French industry veteran, who also founded Be Film The Underground Film Festival. “Their cinema is very European and speaks to the world.”

The Argentinian Consulate will sponsor the opening night reception.

The line-up of screenings includes:
