Salon FICCI offers festival-goers a series of panels, masterclasses, workshops, conversations and press conferences where they will have the chance to talk to and learn from the experiences of acclaimed filmmakers, while getting an overview of the direction the industry has taken in terms of form, the incorporation of other mediums and the way in which today's audiences have appropriated its contents and come to view film as an art form that doesn't just record history, but that is capable of instigating revolutions and changing its very course.Some of the events that make this edition of Salón FICCI especially memorable include:Salon FICCI for Film Buffs• Pablo Trapero TributeSaturday, March 1410:00 – 11:00 am - Salón Rey• Raymond Depardon, Behind Two CamerasA Conversation with Sergio WolfSaturday, March 142:00 – 4:00 pm - Salón Rey• Masterclass Kim Ki-dukMonday, March 1611:00 am – 12:00 pm - Salón ReySalon FICCI Premieres• From Funny Games to Fucking Games Friday, March 132:00 – 4:00 pm - Salón ReyFICCI-goers will be the first to see clips of Spiros Stathoulopoulos' latest film Fucking Games.Participants: Spiros Stathoulopoulos, director; David Corredor, producer at Candelaria Films; Javiera Valenzuela, actress; Vida Torres, actressModerator: Pedro Adrián Zuluaga, film critic• Caliwood, The Celebration (or Everything Began with the End) – A Conversation with Luis Ospina and Óscar Ruiz NaviaA preview of two chapters of Luis Ospina's most recent documentary Everything Began with the End Saturday, March 1411:00 am – 1:00 pm - Salón ReyParticipants: Luis Ospina, director; Óscar Ruiz Navia, directorSalon FICCI for Producers• Arcadia + BAM DebateThursday, March 124:30 – 5:30 pm - Salón ReyParticipants: Pere Roca, director of the Audiovisual Management Master's course at the Media Business School (MBS); Diego Ramírez, general producer at 64A Films; Cuauhtémoc Cárdenas Batel, vice-president of the Morelia International Film Festival; Ricardo Giraldo, director of Cinema 23Moderator: Juan David Correa, director of Arcadia magazine• Imaginable Films.
