SPOTLIGHT ON IBERO-AMERICAN CINEMA 2020
Co-presented with EGEDA US

Spanish-language film has long been a staple of the American Cinematheque's programming and this year we are pleased to extend it online with virtual screenings of nominees for the Platino Xcaret Awards for Ibero-American Cinema - the global awards of the audio-visual industry for the 23 Ibero-American countries. Its mission since the inaugural edition in 2014 is to provide greater visibility for Ibero-American cinema and talent around the world and to give these films the distribution they deserve at an international level.

Our series spotlights several 2020 Best Picture and Best First Feature nominees. In Belén Funes' A THIEF'S DAUGHTER (LA HIJA DE UN LADRÓN), San Sebastián International Film Festival Best Actress Greta Fernández stars as a 22-year-old single mother whose life is upended when her father (Eduard Fernández, Greta's real-life father) is released from jail. Lila Avilés' THE CHAMBERMAID (LA CAMARISTA) follows a young chambermaid (Gabriela Cartol) working in one of the most luxurious hotels in Mexico City, who accepts a grueling schedule and enrolls in the hotel’s adult education program hoping to better her life. And in Aritz Moreno's ADVANTAGES OF TRAVELLING BY TRAIN (VENTAJAS DE VIAJAR EN TREN), a chance conversation puts a young editor (Pilar Castro) on the trail of a psychiatric patient (Luis Tosar).

The winners of the VII Edition of the Platino Xcaret Awards will be announced on Monday June 29th, at 8 AM PST, via the Premios Platino YouTube channel.
