The nineth La Serena International Film Festival, FECILS, is a competitive audiovisual contest, which will take place from November 05 to 09, 2024, in the Coquimbo region. It seeks to support the production and dissemination of regional, national and Latin American audiovisual activity, and thus contribute to decentralization, promoting the meeting and training of regional filmmakers and producers.

FECILS 2024 has an audiovisual extension program that will reach the different spaces of the communes of the region.
