60th anniversary edition of Cartagena International Film Festival- FICCI

Each month of March the Cartagena International Film Festival- FICCI takes place in Colombia, a festival specialised in Latin American films. Born in 1960, it is the oldest cinematic event in South America, and has had film stars such as Rita Hayworth, Jack Nicholson, Bernardo Bertolucci, Clive Owen and Roman Polanski as guests.

The festival, the selections of which were watched by more than 130.000 people in its last edition, includes initiatives such as Films in the Neighborhoods, which spreads the festival's art throughout the city. Among many relevant events, FICCI's programme offers a critics and film journalism workshop and another workshop that is fully dedicated to promoting and strengthening the production of Colombian documentary films.

In this edition, besides the India Catalina statuette, which is the festival's symbol, FICCI will give out some $125.000 in cash awards among the 10 competitive sections and the 4 work-in-progress (WIP) categories. The authors of all selected films will have access to screenings, appointments with sale agents, distributors and theatre owners, and will have press and co-producers available to them, along with all other advantages that come with being accommodated by FICCI.

Oscar® qualifying festival in the shorts and documentary feature films categories: Latin American short and documentary feature films selected for the festival will be part of a vote that will decide which ones of them will be pre-selected for the Annual Academy Awards® organised by the Hollywood Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Science.

Cartagena International Film Festival- FICCI's call for entries will be open exclusively in Festhome until next Wednesday, November 27th!.
