Cine en los Barrios 2018

For 20 years, we have been carrying out in the communities of Cartagena our program Film in the Communities, bringing millions of smiles to people who would otherwise be unable to enjoy the incomparable magic of cinema. This has been possible thanks to the support of loyal and unconditional allies such as the Government of Bolivar, Icultur, SúperGiros and Tecnológico Comfenalco.

In 2017, more than 300 screenings of fiction and non-fiction short-films were held in cultural centers, libraries, prisons, schools, universities, and other institutions in Cartagena. We have thus become the best alternative distribution circuit in Colombia, and have positioned the International Film Festival of Cartagena as one of the country’s most relevant cultural events. Since last year, we were able to reach all the department’s municipalities and
more than 36 villages, thanks to the support of the Government of Bolívar, which, as part of its program Bolívar Sí Avanza, has worked for the inclusion, cultural participation and reconstruction of society. This project has become
known as Film in Bolívar. 120 large format screenings made through FICCI Mobile, in the remotest areas of our country, have joined this movement of socially-conscious cinema in which communities not only share an experience, but have the possibility to open their mind to different languages and geographies –to the other, the new, the unthinkable, the dreamed-about.

Film in the Communities and Film in Bolívar are windows for us to enjoy cinema close to home, spaces for amusement and awareness through culture. We will work earnestly for these programs to reach more and more corners of our country in 2018, transporting screens full of stories and new experiences.

Community leaders, city councils, the National Police, the National Navy and communities themselves participate in each of our screenings. Without their common support and effort, we would have never been able to get so far.
