Argentinian helmer Leonardo Di Cesare's rookie feature "Buena vida delivery" took home the Gold Astor for film at the Mar del Plata Film Festival. The dark comedy, about a man whose house is overrun by his girl-friend's family and theft doughnut factory, also picked up the script award for Di Cesare and Hans Garrion. Hungarian Benedek Fliegauf won director for his drug drama "Dealer." It also picked up the Fipresci Intl. Critics Jury award. About 150,000 people, similar to 2003's attendance, flocked to see the 14 competing films and another 150 from more than 30 countries over the 10 days of Argentina's biggest festival.
