Retornable Agencia and Centro Artístico Cultural

Representative

FRANCISCA FONSECA

Artistic Director and Executive Producer

Agencia Cultural Retornable was created in 2011 as an independent alternative that works to create an artistic development field that fosters audiovisual cultural activities in the Antofagasta Region. Its objective is to develop and promote synergic work practices in the filmmaking field within every area of arts and culture. This creates a space for enhancing cultural heritage and local identity in Antofagasta and Northern Chile, promoting the communities’ cultural participation to involve them in their own cultural development, collaborating with every dimension of process integration.

Francisca Fonseca
Journalist and filmmaker. Master’s degree in Documentary practice and creative theory from Universitat Autónoima de Barcelona, specializing in curation at EICTV film festivals. She founded ANTOFACINE (ex Antofadocs) international film festival and served as director for ten years. She leads Retornable, a cultural agency and center. Another of her projects is Plataforma Itinerante Audiovisual (PIA), which focuses on audience development and outdoor exhibition spaces in areas of northern Chile where films are not presented. Retornable has lead the Todos Somos Diferentes Festival Internacional de Cine for seven years, visibilizing and normalizing functional diversity, as well as people with disabilities. She is the director and programmer at Retornable Cineclub, the only independent cinema in Antofagasta, part of the Red de Salas de Cine, and the northernmost exhibition space in Chile.
