October 14, 2022

We’re back in Europe! Six Chilean production companies will arrive at MIPCOM and MIPJUNIOR, the most important meeting event of the entertainment industry, which will take place in the city of Cannes.

In this 38th edition, more than 10,000 delegates from 96 countries are expected, and Chile itself included. Chilean production companies are arriving with promising projects in different stages of development with a wide international potential. They will look for new agreements, buyers and investors.

Among the 6 producing companies also stand out the five Chilean delegates who will attend the market supported by the Ministry of Cultures, Arts and Heritage.

Under the same line, the Undersecretary of Cultures and Arts, Andrea Gutiérrez Vásquez, highlights the important mission that the ministry has had since 2011 in both markets, ensuring that “we enable networking and outreach with international entertainment content agents, That in turn can lead to agreements and our commitment is to continue joining efforts so that national representatives can carry out their talented ideas

The national presence will also be supported onsite by CinemaChile, by coordinating work meetings and networking actions to create and enhance unlimited business opportunities for Chilean audiovisual.

MIPCOM has become the world’s largest meeting of television and media professionals, where the new series and tv shows compete, an ideal place to look for international partners for their productions. On the other hand, MIPJUNIOR will become the perfect destination for producers and distributors to stand out and for buyers to discover the latest children’s programming before signing any sort of agreements on MIPCOM.

The successful national presence also stands out by including digital guides in each edition and the biennial publication of our catalogue of Chilean series, where more than 50 series have been included in each launch of the French meeting.

With high priority in the audiovisual sector, ProChile’s Chief of Creative Industries, Raúl Vilches highlights the consistent and sustained public and private work in MIPCOM and MIPJUNIOR 2022 also states that “through our sector brands CinemaChile and Chiledoc, a participatory work has been created with the different guilds of the sector, framed in the work we develop for the Chilean creative and cultural industries, which are a contribution to diversification, to the aggregation of value and quality of our exportable offer and from that point of view, a priority focus of our work”.
