Daniel Burman

Co-producer

Daniel Burman and Diego Dubcovsky created BD Cine in 1997 in Buenos Aires to produce their inaugural feature, Un Crisantemo Estalla en Cincoesquinas, directed by Mr. Burman.

Since then, BD Cine has continued to evolve as a production company committed to the development of Argentine filmmakers. BD Cine's focus is on projects that promote a strong cultural identity, and on providing the appropriate distribution and screening channels for each project from the outset. The company has developed strong relationships with European and Latin American production companies.

BD Cine has produced such films as Every Stewardess Goes to Heaven [Todas las Azafatas van al Cielo], directed by Mr. Burman, which won the 2001 Sundance NHK Best Script award and was nominated for the AFI Fest's Grand Jury Prize; Smokers Only [Vagon Fumador], directed by Verónica Chen; F*ckland [DOGMA 95 N°8] by José Luis Marqués, and Garage Olimpo, directed by Marco Bechis.

Upcoming BD Cine films include Buenos Aires Lesbians, directed by Santiago GarcÍa; Swimming Alone [Nadar Solo], directed by Ezequiel Acuña, and Lost Embrace [El abrazo partido].

The latter, directed and co-written by Mr. Burman and executive-produced by Mr. Dubcovsky, was produced with the support of Canal Plus and will be distributed by Bavaria Film International. It recently screened at the Berlin International Film Festival, where it won Silver Bear Awards for Best Actor (Daniel Hendler) and Grand Jury Prize (Mr. Burman).

Daniel Burman began his career as a filmmaker in 1993 with the documentary ¿En qué estación estamos?, which was awarded the UNESCO Honorary Mention. The following year, he won the Annual Short Competition award given by the National Film and Audiovisual Arts Institute (INCAA) for Niños envueltos.

Diego Dubcovsky has been a cinematographer and television producer since 1992, working with such companies and television channels as Aleph, Cablevision, Channel 9, Multimedios America, and Flehner Films, among many others.

Their commitment to Argentine filmmaking goes beyond producing films; both Mr. Burman and Mr. Dubcovsky additionally teach film production at the University of Buenos Aires.
