Buenos Aires Festival International Cine Independent (BAFICI) welcomes filmmaker David J. Markey back with his new documentary feature The Reinactors, his 2008 international film festival sensation. BAFICI previously exhibited 5 of Markey's films during their 2005 program (The Slog Movie, Desperate Teenage Lovedolls, Lovedolls Superstar Fully Realized, 1991 The Year Punk Broke, & (This Is Known As)The Blues Scale, profiling Markey's work for South American audiences for the first time outside of the black market. Markey looks forward to bringing his new film south of the equator, and introducing Argentinians to the phenomena of "re-inacting". Next on the international itinerary, The Reinactors will be a part of this year's INDIE LISBOA Film Festival (Lisbon, Portugal). This marks the first time David Markey's work will be screened in Portugal. And finally, not to be left out of his own country, we are excited to see the US Premier of the film at the USA Film Fest, Dallas Texas, rounding out a very busy month for the film and director.

2-1-08 Reinactors Rocks Rotterdam
Just returned home from International Film Festival of Rotterdam 2008 where The Reinactors world premiered, clearly a resounding success for the film. All the screenings were sold out, with no press or hype. Besides being placed in the top ten audience favorites (Daily Tiger 1-26) , "The Reinactors" also picked up 7 additional international film festivals. The future brightening considerably for the film, thank you Film Festival Rotterdam and Cameron Jamie. Cameron's films (BB, JO, Spook House, & Kranky Clause) were shown along with live performaces from The Melvins and Keiji Heino. My 1982 LA punk doc The Slog Movie was also screened as a part of Cameron's Cinematic Nuggets. -David Markey
