With almost a quarter century in existence, the Valdivia International Film Festival has become the premiere meeting ground for Chilean cinema and one of the most important events of its kind in Latin America.

Founded in 1994, under the auspices of the Universidad Austral Cinema Club, it is characterized by being at the forefront of world cinema, year after year, allowing Chilean audiences and industry to participate in the inception of new voices and unique visions.

Currently, hand in hand with UACh and the Valdivia Cultural Center for Film Promotion (CPCV), FICValdivia programs over 200 movies, a large portion of them premieres in Chile and Latin America, congregating an entire city around cinema.

In a nutshell, FICValdivia is a cultural event, a social phenomenon and a meeting ground to experience the movies of tomorrow, which today’s artists are already making, a place to become immersed in the most representative pieces of the current Chilean panorama.
