    Co-funded by the UNESCO International Fund for the promotion of Culture (IFPC), this project trains amateur filmmakers in filmmaking and film appreciation. It gives them the opportunity to create, produce, edit and present their original works in public spaces in Barranquilla (Colombia) as well as at the 17th edition of the Cine a la Calle International Short Film Festival.
