The third edition of the Latin American Forum on Film and Social Impact, which will bring together agents from the region interested in promoting cultural, social and environmental change through art, will take place from July 4 to 7 in this capital, Latamcinema reported.

The festival, which will be held at the Delia Zapata Olivella National Arts Center, aims to generate a “meeting, thought and reflection to address the achievements and challenges of impact production from a Latin American perspective,” said Marcela Lizcano, one of the organizers.

“The event gives us the opportunity to foster collaborations that can strengthen individual projects, but also to collectively address our requests for public policies and circulation systems that take into account the needs of this practice of impact in cinema,” Lizcano told Latamcinema.

Memory, body and territory are the axes that articulate the program of this edition, in which some 130 high-impact producers, filmmakers, organizations and agents of change will participate.

The agenda includes Mexican filmmaker Medhin Tewolde, Wayuu-Colombian filmmaker Leiqui Uriana Henríquez, Brazilian researcher Rosane Da Silva Borges, and Brazilian filmmaker Olinda Tupinambá.

Carlos Gutiérrez from Cinema Tropical, Frida Muenala from Mullu Tv and Daniel Bejarano from Ojo al Sancocho will also share case studies, tools, methodologies and strategies for social mobilization and distribution based on their own work experiences.

The program includes the panels “Building a shared vision”, “Memory, Body and Territory, weaving different perspectives of cultural change”, “Outlining a community paradigm in film distribution” and “Creating with care: collaborative and inclusive audiovisual approaches”.

Also sharing his perspective on public policy will be Brazilian Rodrigo Antonio da Silva, who after leading the Association of Black Audiovisual Professionals (APAN), joined the Directorate of Audiovisual Training and Innovation of the Brazilian Ministry of Culture.

The Forum is an activity organized in co-production by four cultural organizations: Nodo Sur (Colombia), Ambulante and Impacta Cine (Mexico) and Taturana (Brazil).
