For the first time in Latin America, the world's film commissions and production leaders will meet in Bogotá (Colombia), September 20 - 22
The International Association of World Film Commissions (AFCI) selected Bogotá as the venue for Cineposium 2022, a conference that connects commissions from around the world and industry leaders for three days to discuss public policy, economic development and the challenges facing the film industry. Bogotá is the first Latin American city to receive this distinction.
The event will be held at the Bogotá Chamber of Commerce (Chapinero), on September 20, 21 and 22. Bogotá presented a strong candidacy led by the Bogotá Film Commission of the District Institute of the Arts (Idartes), together with the Bogotá Chamber of Commerce and the support of the District Tourism Institute of Bogotá (IDT), the Film Commission of Proimágenes Colombia, Procolombia, Invest in Bogotá and the Greater Bogotá Convention Bureau.
The country's capital has shown great growth as an international audiovisual production center, thanks to incentives such as the FFC cash rebate and the CINA transferable tax credit, granted by the National Government through Proimágenes Colombia - Film Commission. It should also be noted that Silvia Echeverri, director of the Film Commission of Proimágenes Colombia, was appointed vice president of the AFCI board of directors.
Founded in 1975, the Association of Film Commissioners International (AFCI) is the only global non-profit professional organization representing city, state, regional, provincial and national film commission members on six continents. AFCI provides the advocacy, connectivity and education necessary for film commissions and businesses in the screen sector to foster economic growth and promote infrastructure development in an inclusive and sustainable manner.
