As Ventana Sur closes up shop tonight in Buenos Aires, screenings will continue online.
Buyers on Cinando will be able to view almost all of the Ventana Sur selections instantly via the website, from today. Also, other users of Cinando can send a simple request to producer/sales company to view films.
The Primer Corte titles, which are works in progress, will not be online, but the majority of the Ventana Sur library will be.
A special section of Cinando will be devoted to Ventana Sur.
“It’s really the same idea of catch-up screenings,” said Ventana Sur co-executive director Jerome Paillard. “It’s the most secure way for sellers, and it’s easier for buyers also than having screeners.”
