The International Films & Indigenous Arts Festival in Wallmapu
Dakel’ün ka mangeluwün / Calls and Invites:

Indigenous and non-indigenous audiovisual filmmakers, from various nationalities and territories, to submit their works on indigenous and / or Afro-descendant themes, free style and length, individually or collectively created, to the 7th edition of the Ficwallmapu Festival, to be held on January, of 2022, in the city of Temuko, Ngülumapu, Mapuche Territory.

In its seventh edition, Ficwallmapu calls, with particular interest, films that address the elders of our communities, taiñ folilkeche/our roots. The original peoples are known for an valuing female and male older people who carry with them the collective wisdom that goes transferring to new generations. In these times they are part of the voices of defense of territories, health of the peoples, revitalization of the language and all the topics that involve us, but that in times of colonialism and extractivism, their lives are affected by complexities over which we think relevant to stablish an intergenerational dialogue.

Coming soon.

1. Rakiduam Dullin/ Selection Criteria

The audiovisual productions that are submitted to Ficwallmapu must respect the views and voices of the different communities of Original Peoples and / or Afro-descendants that participate in the process behind and in front of cameras. The festival will privilege the selection of films that contribute to decolonization processes and that are in tune with the values ​​and worldviews of the peoples involved, moving away from the productions that promote cultural appropriation, stereotypes, discrimination, prejudice, machismo, direct propaganda of political parties, among other aspects that are detrimental or prejudicial to the peoples.

Selection Criteria for films to be part of the festival are

- That promotes the production of indigenous and/or afro-descendant authoring.

- That contributes to the intergenerational dialogue and reflects the lives of elderly people in indigenous communities, peoples and first nations and/or afro-descendant in the territories.

- That contributes to the local production in Mapuche Territory, Wallmapu on both sides of the Andes mountain range: Puelmapu and Ngülumapu.

- That promotes the right of communication, creativity, self-representation, quest and development of aesthetic and narrative resources of the Original and / or Afro-descendant Peoples.

- That promotes the rights of Indigenous and / or Afro-descendant women, childhood, youth, sexual and affective diversities.

- That denounces the violation of the rights, persecution and genocide suffered by the Original and / or Afro-descendant Peoples and the current colonial violence that we are facing.
