BioBiocine, International Film Festival of Concepcion, is an intercultural gathering of knowledge and wisdom expressed through cinema, which aims to be a space for dialogue and contemplation, as well as to disseminate, promote, support and place value on National and International Cinematography from a Territory and Identity that is established as the context for its annual meeting.

BioBioCine International Festival calls for works from all countries and cultures for its eleventh version. Its program includes competitive and non-competitive categories of Fiction and Non-Fiction Feature and Short Films, with a focus on auteur cinema, new filmmakers, experimentation, intercultural dialogue and first nations.

The juries for the different categories will be persons linked to the national and international audiovisual and cultural industry, who will be disqualified from submitting works to the competition.

The juries of each category will issue an unappealable and final decision, awarding the "Tokicura", BioBioCine's highest award, to the winners of the prizes listed below.

Feature Film Competition
- Best Feature Film: "Tokicura" Trophy
- Special Jury Mention

Short Film Competition
- Best Short Film: "Tokicura" Trophy
