The sixth La Serena International Film Festival, FECILS, is a competitive audiovisual event, to be held from October 27 to 31, 2020, in the Coquimbo region. It seeks to support the production and dissemination of regional, national and international audiovisual activity, and thus contribute to the decentralization of the activity, promoting the meeting and training of regional filmmakers and producers. With these actions, FECILS seeks to establish itself as a cultural contest that, in addition to generating cinematographic exhibition spaces in the Coquimbo region, applies its emphasis to generating new audiences. FECILS 2020 has an audiovisual extension program that will reach the different spaces of the communes of the Coquimbo Region, with the aim of facilitating public access to the works.
