FICCON, Constitución International Film Festival, is an event that seeks to enhance the Maula audiovisual field and turn the region into an audiovisual cultural pole with great projections in the medium and long term.

It is a space that brings together independent productions at a local, Latin American and international level, it stands out for promoting encounter, discussion and cultural exchange in the field of independent film productions and seeks to highlight regional productions. Likewise, it encourages audiovisual experimentation and maintains its commitment to strengthening the development and training of filmmakers and viewers by offering seminars, workshops and talks.

The second edition of FICCON will take place from October 22 to 26, 2024, with 12 spaces in the Maule region, in addition to the support of the network of movie theaters and will have its special online window, adapting to the current panorama where many people accesses content through platforms, without giving up the importance of keeping exhibition spaces active and reflecting on their relevance.

The programming will include short films adapted with sign language, regional, national and international short film competition, screening of national and Latin American films and talks, interviews, special sections and a retrospective of films performed by a Chilean actor to whom we want to pay tribute to his trajectory.
