The document is titled Where are the thousands of films that INCAA had stored in its film library? and details the following:

“The creators of the thousands of films that are in the National Institute of Cinema and Audiovisual Arts (INCAA) request to know how many there are today, where they are and in what condition they are.

According to the Film Law 17,741, every owner of a feature film financed with contributions from INCAA must deliver the first copy of the finished work.

This creates a true heritage and memory of the cinema and culture of our country.

In light of the reports circulating about the closure of the INCAA warehouses, where these thousands of films were located until December 10, 2023, all of us creators who have complied with the provisions of the law, in our fullest right, request that the current INCAA authorities inform us about this matter.

We demand to know in detail the titles they hold, the condition of each one, the place and the way in which they plan to protect them.

The national audiovisual heritage is part of the heritage of humanity that must be preserved.”
