The catalog, created by the Delegation of Euskadi in Argentina-Mercosur, with the collaboration of the Basque TV (ETB), is divided into two categories: Films, and Documentaries - Reports. The material can be requested by clubs through a formal request that specifies the title of interest and when it will be aired.
Buenos Aires, Argentina. There are more and more Basque clubs that want to host Basque film series, not just because of something new to do, but also because it allows the clubs to open their doors, and attract a new audience while spreading the Basque culture.
That is why, and in hopes of responding to the constant demand of the clubs, the Delegation of Euskadi in Argentina-Mercosur, with the collaboration of ETB and Canal Vasco, have created a catalog of audiovisual material with some 120 titles, with the intention of communicating with he Basque community in Argentina and the rest of Mercosur, videos that have been aired on Basque TV over the last few years. The catalog is comprised of two parts, films and documentaries-reports, with topics as varied as politics, art, history, sports, cities, Euskera, cooking, festivals, traditions, religion, geography, style, music and emigration.
