A new festival celebrating a decade-long Chilean film retrospective
- Text by Camilo Salas
Chilean cinema has been successfully growing through the years. It started in the first decade of the 20th Century but wasn't until the 70s when the Chilean film industry was born. A dip in the 90s saw only a few movies being made, contrasting with the last decade, where a mass of films were released theatrically, local, Chilean movies across all genres - such as the upcoming highlights of this new film festival, "Machuca" from Andres Wood or "Sábado" directed by Matias Bize.
From September 21 to October 3, the La Moneda Palace Cultural Center (located under the national government palace, La Moneda) is hosting a retrospective of Chilean cinema made from 2000 to 2010.
The festival is called ChileNcine and will show 90 films, from fiction to documentary, with seven daily premieres.
