The website Cinechile has put together a list of 1,171 Chilean productions, including short films, full-length features, documentaries and animations from different genres and periods of the country's history. The films have been made available online by their producers and archived by Chilean organizations devoted to the development of the audiovisual arts.

The website explains:

En este lugar agrupamos 1171 largos de ficción, documentales y cortometrajes que han sido subidos para verse online de manera oficial, según los sitios que los han puesto a disposición. En este sentido, destacamos la gran labor de los sitios del Archivo Digital de la Cineteca NacionalCinetecavirtual.clCinépata.com y el Archivo Patrimonial de la Universidad de Santiago. Además, se suman los vínculos de numerosos realizadores que suben sus propios trabajos en la red.

On this site we group 1,171 feature films, documentaries and short films that have been put online officially, according to the websites that have made them available. That said, we would like to give recognition to the great work of websites like the Digital Archive of National Film Library, Cinetecavirtual.cl, Cinépata.com and the University of Santiago's Patrimonial Archive. Also, we have added films from many filmmakers that have uploaded their work onto the web.
