The Buenos Aires Running Film Festival is the first film festival in Latin America dedicated to running. It counts with an international feature and short film exhibition involving running and triathlon around the world. There are also conferences, seminars and activities directed by running and filmmaking professionals.
Our mission is to capture the essence of running. By sharing the stories of committed runners, be that trail, street, mountain, long distance, sprint or amateur, we aim to unravel the mystery what keeps us running. There is a life-changing story in every runner yearning to be told.
Laurels and diploma for the best of each category.

Response from festival:
Thank you so much for your review and your kind words. It is precisely because of films like “Out & Back” that the BARUNFF can exist as we conceived it. It’s not easy to find films with both depth and quality, and with a production team so humane as WSF. We are honored to have you on board!
