October 27, 2023
October 27 is the International Day of Audiovisual Heritage, a moment that highlights the importance of preserving and promoting audiovisual creations as an essential part of cultural heritage.
CinemaChile congratulates the entire sector and stands out the remarkable increase in Chilean audiovisual production during the last three years, both nationally and internationally.
This increase has marked a milestone in the history of cinema and television in Chile. That is why we could not miss this opportunity and make a brief recap of these great milestones. Join us!
Over the last three years, Chile has forged co-production agreements with Germany (December 2022), Spain (July 2023), Costa Rica (October 2023) and others. This with the goal of allowing better distribution in those markets and access to co-production funds from the countries of origin that open new financing doors for our country’s industry, as well as enhancing the presence of national talents, either artistic or technical.
But that’s not all, the audiovisual industry has more and more faces and this is demonstrated by Chilean actors and actresses working in international productions such as the consecrated Alfredo Castro and the outstanding actor Pedro Fontaine with whom we talked about the internationalization of Chilean talent in the last edition of the San Sebastian International Film Festival.

Last year closed with 219 awards in 131 international meetings, marking a major achievement for the industry.
This success has continued in the first half of this year with an increase of 128% of awards compared to the same period (January-June) during 2022. A figure that predicts a great year by having increased 128% more than during the same period of 2022.

But this is certainly not all, as a result of the success of this first study, new statistics were generated as the Making Of of #8M to honor the Women of Chilean Audiovisual who leave their mark, not only in the most visible areas, but especially in the technical part of national productions.
This day is a key initiative by UNESCO and the Coordinating Council of Audiovisual Archives Associations (CCAAA).
Through cinema, television and digital media, stories are transmitted that reflect the diversity and cultural identity of Chile, where various institutions and organizations work day by day to protect this cultural asset.
