Festival start: 21 October 2022      Festival end: 30 October 2022

Festigol® is an independent non-competitive Football Film and Documentaries Festival held in Santiago of Chile since 2016. It aims to create a space where football is shown as a creator of stories beyond the pitch demanding it as a social and cultural phenomenon in Chile as well as in the whole world. We see football as a constructor of identities mobilizing our society’s affections, narratives and memories. We are seeking to be a means of appropriation and revaluation of the football-related cultural manifestations.

Besides the exhibition of films, we seek to bring together different audiences creating a meeting place for different football-related cultural expressions allowing us to develop emerging issues connected to this sport and to our society being today the single space offering movie showtimes related to the sport as a social manifestation in our country.

For its fifth version, Festigol® will be held from October 21 to 30, 2022 in Santiago de Chile with face-to-face exhibitions and through the festival's digital platform.

A non-competitive call will be issued for the exhibition of documentaries, short films, animations and feature films in order to promote and bring together the film production about football and related topics.
