SAN LUIS, Argentina -- The inaugural Festival Internacional San Luis Cine kicked off over the weekend with a red carpet ceremony and promises of a thriving local industry high in the foothills of the Andes Mountains.
Catherine Deneuve, on hand to receive a career achievement award, was the star of the evening.
