Mar Del Plata

The 23rd edition of the Festival Internacional de Cine Mar Del Plata has officially announced their lineup and I’m very proud to say that Luke and Brie Are on a First Date has been included. Held in Argentina, it’s one of only twelve competitive festivals worldwide deemed Class “A” by the FIAPF, along with Cannes, Berlin, Venice and others. In other words, it’s a pretty dope festival and will be a great place to play. I’m very curious to hear what the reception is like from a South American audience but unfortunately, I won’t be able to attend myself. Instead, I’ll have to hear back from Aaron Katz and Barry Jenkins, who are both going for their brilliant films Dance Party, USA and Medicine for Melancholy. That’s right, Argentina gets to double dip on Hartigan, with my supporting performance in Katz’s first film also on display. The lineup on the whole is pretty impressive so check out the official site for all the goods. Once again, our write-up in the program is totally flattering and a better synopsis than I could have ever thought of. The link to that is right here.

If you live in Argentina, check us out. Who knows when we’ll be back that way again? Also, check out this postcard I made for our first three festival visits. More to come soon, I hope.
