The Festival Internacional de Cine y las Artes Indígenas y Afrodescendientes in Wallmapu takes place in Temuco since 2015, and collaborates with different social organizations, collectives, groups, academics, among others. The event sets out to become a space to promote respect, knowledge, and intercultural dialogue that contributes to relevant social processes for the territory. It backs the sovereignty of indigenous people’s image and the production materials that, though not by indigenous creatives, contribute to decolonization processes in Chile, Abya Yala, and the world.
