37º Festival Cine UC 2013

As every summer in Chile, there are many festivals that try to feature the best of what’s to come in the cinemas, but there’s no better festival than this one to see what are really the best films that will be released. Sadly, by the time this festival was running, I was working at my internship, and at the same time I had seen most of the films that were featured and that I wanted to see. It’s also great to have a lineup of ‘the best of the year’ even if I don’t actually agree with it, but nevertheless. As always, we have a list in order of preference with the title (it’s english translation in italic), it’s year, director and lineup in which it was included, as well as a rating and a review if available. Enjoy!
