Chilean Cinema Trends

Chilean cinema has been growing and growing as years go by. The “Festival de cine de Valdivia” (ES), the best known Chilean festival of cinema, has taken place in the city of Valdivia (ES) since 1993. Every year, Chilean producers and directors have the possibility to present their new works in this international event. In the Chilean blogs “Fuga Magazine” (ES) and “Voraz Film Festival”(ES) , you can read about this year’s event, and the details of new Chilean movies in the festival. You can also read about the “Viña del Mar Cinema festival”(ES) (in the city of Viña del Mar(ES), just one week later than Valdivia´s festival). In the blog “Analizame” (ES) (Analize Me), the scriptwriter Gonzalo Maza posts his analysis of the national and international scenes. In “Las Peliculas de mi Vida” (ES) (The Movies of my Life) the writer and director Alberto Fuguet posts about the impact of his movie “Se Arrienda” (For Rent) in media and actors awards. In “Esta es la Sagrada Familia” (ES) (This is the Sacred Family), director Sebastián Campos posts about cinema criticism in general.

Que todos los matices se conjuguen sin competir unos con otros, y que la lengua filuda esta dentro de un contexto y no es motivo principal. Fuga es una película que usa otros recursos, pudiendo caer en lo mismo. Pero no lo hace. Y cuando uno termina de verla, sale con millones de melodías en el cuerpo…toda una experiencia. Tal vez nos falta reflexión y a propósito de eso, se esta realizando el primer festival de Cine Ideas por el Arcis. Fuera de Campo, es una página que invita a mirar el cine de manera distinta. En un post anterior de cine, encontré varias personas relacionadas con este rubro que comparten sus ideas a través de los blogs. Hoy se estrena Sagrada Familia y su director ya tenía blog cuando escribí el post. […]
