Festival start: 08 November 2022      Festival end: 12 November 2022

#NarrarelFuturo: Film & New Media Festival is a meeting point for exhibition, training and industry where local, national and regional industry professionals interested in filmmaking and audiovisual production in their most recent and interesting narrative and technical trends within the digital environment meet; transmedia, web and interactive documentary, virtual reality (VR/AR/XR), webseries, artificial intelligence, futurisms, narratives and collective financing (Crowdsourcing/funding), vertical video and other concepts of cinema and new media are some of the thematic axes of the Festival.

Likewise, during the event, development and creation scenarios are carried out such as the #NewMediaLab, Ibero-American laboratory for the development of new media projects and the #HackathonVR360, which this year reaches its seventh edition.

We also open the doors to the Colombian and international creative industry to create meeting and conversation points around the ongoing projects: 10 tips to #NarrarElFuturo, speed networking sessions and the launch of the Hispanic American Projects Database and the new media industry manual are some of the activities in which attendees from the industry area will be able to participate in this new version.

There will be more than 55 hours of film and digital content, 100 hours of training scenarios, 40 international and national guests and a broad and diverse spectrum of topics, processes and projects under construction and development.

The new narratives continue calling out for multiple screens and formats, do you dare to fly?

The confirmed prizes to be offered to winners of each section are:
Statuette #NarrarElFuturo (#TellTheFuture)
Diploma and Certificate
5 hours of consulting with experts related to the project.

9th #NarrarelFuturo: Film & New Media Festival (Bogotá, November 8 to 12, 2022)

The programming of #NarrarElFuturo: Festival de cine & Nuevos Medios navigates each year in a programmatic narrative that aims to generate a constant dialogue between traditional cinematographic narratives and the most current trends that experiment from technology, digital, immersive and interactive.

We believe that we are in a time where "THE FUTURE" is beginning to be understood and told from many perspectives, formats and genres and we want to hear, see, feel and live each of these stories.

Thus, in this new edition, faithful to the evident and inevitable changes brought about by the pandemic and with the concept of "THE FUTURE" as the structural basis of our curatorial narrative, we will have two main sections each with several categories of participation: "Stories of the Future" and "The Future is Now".

Section with focus on film projects (Short and Feature Films), in it we will be looking for films that speak and connect with the future in many ways; we want, of course, fantasy films, afro and indigenous futurisms and science fiction, the most obvious ones, but we also want to see many other looks at the future from the most varied formats, genres, themes and narratives.

The participating films must speak of the future, of the many possibilities that are coming in this new era, of all those possible universes that opened up with the quasi-end of the world that we have been living globally in the last two years.
