In the early 1990s, Argentina made a record of 12 films released in 1990, 17 in 1991, and 13 in 1993. As time passed by, the filmmakers worked hard and with their innovative vision and grit increased the production and viewership of their cinema both in the domestic and global circuit. Luis Puenzo’s The Official Story was the first Argentinian film to win the Best Foreign Language film award at the 58th Academy Awards. At the 82nd Academy Awards, the Argentine film, The Secret in Their Eyes (El Secreto de sus Ojos, 2009) won the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film. And in the year 2015, Hollywood remade the film with the same title. We can see the fingerprints of this mixed clan of the contemporary and creative filmmaker as a constant source of amazing films in a wide variety of genres.

Thanks largely to filmmakers like Lucrecia Martel, Pablo Trapero, and other innovative auteurs, Argentine cinema continues to cross borders and gain fans internationally. From more popular titles like Wild Tales to some underrated one's we have picked 10 of the best Argentinian Films of the last decade (2010s).
