Festival start: 28 November 2024      Festival end: 30 November 2024

On November 29, 1974, the DINA arrested Carmen Bueno and Jorge Müller after the premiere of the film "A la sombra del sol". Ten years later, Chilean filmmakers organized to commemorate that day as Chilean Film Day, a date that was distorted with the arrival of democracy, since the large exhibition chains saw a business opportunity, relegating the true meaning of the date. From 2010 onwards, university attempts and the Museum of Memory began to retake the true meaning of the day of Chilean cinema, with almost the only venue being the Metropolitan region. 50 years after the civil-military coup d'état, the Municipality of Valparaíso decided to commemorate November 29 by showing the film "El Realismo Socialista" by Ruiz-Sarmiento, with photography by Jorge Müller.

This year 2024 marks 50 years since the disappearance of the filmmaker couple, the same year that the audiovisual table is created and in this sense, is that we seek to enhance from a regional processes of vindication of our historical memory, linking our audiovisual work to the community in our territories.
