FCC is a festival focused on presenting the best short films from different parts of the world.

Our goal is to create a space for filmmakers to premier their shorts, receive their deserved recognition within their community, and gather and comment short films. FCC is an open network built to share this form of art and welcomes all sorts of cinema, from amateur to professional work.

Our venue is located in an outdoor park in the heart of Barcelona, which is why we provide our attendants with headphones. For this reason we pay special care to the sound design from the short films we select.

FCC contains a wide variety within its selection in which our understanding of cinema doesn't divide it as "genres", but tries to find the hidden meaning which might have been intended by the filmmaker. The only rule is on its duration: from 2 to 10 minutes.

The Santiago International Documentary Film Festival (FIDOCS) is the main broadcasting, diffusion, and competition event for documentary cinema in Chile and Latin America.

Focused on the promotion of dialogue and reflection, as well as in training audiences towards the appreciation of documentary film in a context of permanent transformation, FIDOCS seeks to explore the multiple paths available in documentary making as well as in the drifts proper to nonfiction works. In its program, FIDOCS incorporates the works of both experienced and emerging directors in order to address the question of “THE REAL”, and in doing so, it considers the various dimensions, disciplinary frontiers, and tensions that the question “what is real?”, as well as the documentary genre itself, has to offer us.

Throughout its history, FIDOCS has positioned itself as one of the most distinguished documentary film festivals in Latin America, standing as a privileged platform to screen contemporary cinema and to promote critical thinking. Year by year, under its selective curatorial approach, FIDOCS no only calls for important exponents of national and international audiovisual sectors to exhibit their work in Santiago, but also, in using this city as a film hub, it calls on such exponents to question, interpret, and re-write the status of contemporary documentary film practice today.

For the promotion, positioning, and exhibition of Chilean and International films, FIDOCS displays two main competitions. These sections include: International Feature Film Competition and Chilean Feature Film Competition.

In addition, FIDOCS has the main industry activity, FIDOCS FIRST CUT, for national and Latin-American works in progress where the jury, in addition to choosing a winner, feeds the filmmakers to carry out the post-production of their films and encourage their diffusion and transmission.

The festival also includes important training and extension activities, such as ESCUELA FIDOCS, where the most prominent film school students from Santiago receive private exhibition classes from the main festival’s international guests; Master Classes open to the public; FIDOCS editions, among others. Moreover, given its interdisciplinary scope, FIDOCS also seeks to accompany the screening of documentaries with other artistic interventions, such as installation works, exhibitions, performances, or theater plays, all of which are in constant dialogue with the notion of the documentary itself by their own expressive means.

Promotional card of Amerta Festival

The AMERTA ART International Film Festival , which takes place in Turkey, and is now in its first year, aims to encourage greater global attention on documentary film and social movie and to promote quality films focusing on diverse civilizations and cultures from across the world. The festival considers itself a valuable resource for distributing and developing world content.

AMERTA ART encourages the submission of films from all countries. We look for films with a focus on our changing world that express unique perspective, that highlight innovation or perhaps capture a dying tradition. Culture is a broad topic, replete with multiple interpretations and we promote the examination and expression of all. Our aim each year is to produce a program that provides our audiences with meaningful and thought-provoking questions about the world we live in.

The Organizing Committee also engages in the market, connecting filmmakers with opportunities for distribution as well as produces an annual industry forum where projects in development are linked with possible funding or co-production. Please see our website for more details on project submission and lab participation.
