Cine Chile

A special focus program on Chilean cinema.

In cooperation with the team of Centro de Cine y Creac├şon (CCC) from Santiago de Chile, WCA presents a special focus programme with alot of attention for Chilean cinema: Cine Chile.

Film lovers are probably familiar with Pablo Larrain's most recent films, but Chile produces wonderful films every year that are invariably selected for festivals such as Berlin, Cannes, Venice, Locarno and our own IFFR, which are less well known here. Time to bring this talent to the Netherlands and present it.
