Venezuelan director Claudia Pinto scored another award for her film ‘La Distancia Más Larga’ (The Longest Distance). American audience of the 38th Cleveland International Film Festival awarded Pinto with the Reel Women Direct for Best Female Director, one of the most important awards of the event.

This festival focuses on the audience that attends the event and votes to select the winners. The film was included in the Official Selection and competed with another 44 movies from around the world.

The next stop for the film is the Chicago Latin Film Festival, where ‘La Distancia Más Larga’ will be presented on Thursday, April 3rd.

In March, Pinto’s film participated in several international festivals: the International Film Festival of Punta del Este (Uruguay), the 12th International Filmmor Women’s Film Festival in Istambul (Turkey), the 30th Reflects Du Cinéma Ibérique and Latino-Americain in Bordeaux (France) and was the opening of the 31st Recontres Du Cinéma Latino-Americain in Lyon (France).

The film arrived also to Africa, during the International Festival Du Film pour l’Enfance et la Jounesse in Sousse (Tunisia).

‘The Longest Distance’ will premiere in Venezuela on August 29th, the date was postponed due to the tense situation of the country. Director Pinto said that she will take this time to continue the international presentation of the film, so when it arrives to Venezuela, it will have finished a cycle.

“When the movie premieres in Venezuela, it will close the circle, because Venezuela is the origin and inspiration of the film”.
