The Italian Cultural Institute of Santiago supports the Italian participation in ‘Fidocs 2021, the International Documentary Film Festival of Santiago, and main meeting, dissemination and competition space for documentary cinema in Chile and Latin America.

The festival not only brings together leading figures from the national and international audiovisual industry, but also acts as a platform for questioning, interpreting and rewriting the contemporary world.

‘Fidocs’ also organizes important training and dissemination activities such as the ‘Fidocs School’, with lectures and master classes aimed at film students and the general public.

Italy will participate in the 2021 edition (scheduled from 1 to 7 December, in hybrid mode, both online and in person) with two documentaries (‘A Custom of the Sea‘ by Fabrizio Polpettini for the International Selection and ‘The Hole‘ by Michelangelo Frammartino in the ‘International Panorama’ section) and a masterclass by director Michelangelo Frammartino entitled ‘Metodologie del cinema‘ (Filmmaking Methods).
