Amilcar Films; CangrejoFilms ;La Alborada Films; Dinogorila Creative Lab;  Cubho Audiovisual and Pájaro are the production companies represented by these professionals who will follow their international route to boost their projects and seek financing, co-production or platforms.

For us as a Ministry, along with CinemaChile it is essential to support the presence of Chileans abroad and especially in such important international markets as this.

CinemaChile, thanks to the Creative Industries program in conjunction with ProChile, will promote the participation of five members of the Association of Film and Television Producers (APCT).

Jaime Villarreal Izquierdo ; María Elena Wood ; Juan Ignacio Gasaly; Florencia Rodríguez and Leonora González will be the professionals who will be representing their production companies and participate in the various industry spaces.

In this contest we support several initiatives for companies and unions to be present in relevant instances such as Ventana Sur, as it allows us to connect with the Argentine market, a relevant actor for the country for its strong audiovisual industry and where we also have a film co-production agreement
