FICIANT 6º 2012

This specific Film Festival, the Antofagasta International Film Festival, is one I didn’t actually attend, but there were films showing that I saw in other venues, so I decided to make this a feature, that if there’s a festival in the world where I’ve seen over 15 movies that are showing, I shall be doing this feature where I list all the movies that participated that I’ve seen, a rating, the competition in which they were in and finally a rating and review, if aplicable. In boldface the winners of the Festival shall be pointed out. I hope to attend the next FICIANT if time and the movies make it possible.

Without further ado, the list of films watched on the Festival, kinda:
