Describe the main features of the policy/measure: 

WITHIN THE REPORTABILITY PERIOD, YOU CAN REPORT ON THE PROGRESS IN THE NEGOTIATION OR PROCESSING OF THE FOLLOWING AUDIOVISUAL COPRODUCTION INSTRUMENTS:

- FINALIZATION OF LEGISLATIVE PROCESSING IN THE NATIONAL CONGRESS OF BULLETIN NO. 10.997-10, WHICH "APPROVES THE LATIN AMERICAN AGREEMENT OF FILM COPRODUCTION, ADOPTED IN CARACAS, VENEZUELA, ON 11/11/89, AND ITS ENDORSEMENT OF THE CINEMATOGRAPHIC CO-PRODUCTION BOGOTA, COLOMBIA, ON 07/14/06". (2017).

- TERM OF PROCESSING IN THE NATIONAL CONGRESS OF THE "AUDIOVISUAL CO-PRODUCTION AGREEMENT BETWEEN THE WALLONIA-BRUSSELS FEDERATION AND THE GOVERNMENT OF THE REPUBLIC OF CHILE". (2019)

FOR OUR COUNTRY, THE AUDIOVISUAL COPRODUCTION TREATIES ARE RELEVANT BECAUSE THEY EXPAND THE EXPLOITATION MARKETS, ATTRACT FOREIGN INVESTMENT, INCREASE THE BUDGETS FOR THE AUDIOVISUAL PROJECTS AND THE PRODUCTION STANDARDS, CREATING KNOWLEDGE AND GIVING TO CHILE THE OPPORTUNITY TO DEVELOP THAT ACTIVITY IN CULTURAL AS IN COMMERCIAL AREAS . IT IS DEFINITELY A LEGAL FRAMEWORK THAT BOTH PARTIES CAN USE, IN SUCH A WAY TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THE POTENTIALITIES THAT THE INSTRUMENT OFFERS.

What are the results achieved so far through the implementation of the policy/measure?: 

AT PRESENT, OUR COUNTRY HAS 6 EXISTING FILM AND/OR AUDIOVISUAL CO-PRODUCTION AGREEMENTS: WITH ARGENTINA, BRAZIL, CANADA, FRANCE, ITALY AND VENEZUELA. BILATERAL AGREEMENTS WITH THE WALLONIA-BRUSSELS FEDERATION (BELGIUM) AND WITH THE FEDERAL REPUBLIC OF GERMANY ARE ALSO IN ADVANCED STAGES OF PROCESSING. IN THE CASE OF MULTILATERAL AGREEMENTS, CHILE IS AWAITING TO COME INTO FORCE OF THE IBERO-AMERICAN CO-PRODUCTION AGREEMENT, MANAGED BY THE CONFERENCE OF IBERO-AMERICAN AUDIOVISUAL AND CINEMATOGRAPHIC AUTHORITIES (CAACI), WHICH, ONCE IN FORCE, WILL SUBSTANTIALLY EXPAND THE POSSIBILITIES OF CO-PRODUCTION BETWEEN CHILE AND OTHER IBERO-AMERICAN COUNTRIES.

IT IS IMPORTANT TO HIGHLIGHT THAT ON OCTOBER 2020, THE LEGISLATIVE PROCESSING OF THE "AGREEMENT BETWEEN THE GOVERNMENT OF THE REPUBLIC OF CHILE AND THE GOVERNMENT OF THE FEDERAL REPUBLIC OF GERMANY ON FILM COPRODUCTION" HAS BEEN COMPLETED. THE INSTRUMENT, WHICH WAS UNANIMOUSLY APPROVED, HAS THE PURPOSE OF COOPERATION AND FILM CO-PRODUCTION WITH GERMANY WITH A VIEW TO IMPROVE THE DISTRIBUTION OF FILMS FROM EACH STATE, AND THE CULTURAL, AND ECONOMIC EXCHANGE BETWEEN THE CULTURAL AND ECONOMIC PARTIES; SO THAT, BOTH COUNTRIES CAN ACCESS THE BENEFITS AND CINEMATOGRAPHIC INCENTIVES DELIVERED BY THE RESPECTIVE PARTIES, ACHIEVING THROUGH THE INTERNATIONALIZATION OF THE CHILEAN AUDIOVISUAL INDUSTRY. DURING THE PROCESSING OF THE AGREEMENT IN THE NATIONAL CONGRESS, THE UNDERSECRETARY OF CULTURES AND ARTS, EXPRESSED THAT: "THIS AGREEMENT IS ONE OF THE MOST RELEVANT SIGNED BY CHILE IN THE MATTER, BESIDES IMPORTANCE IN ADDITION TO THE GERMAN FILM MARKET, MEAN THE INVITATION OF HONOR TO THE BERLIN FILM FESTIVAL, BEING THE FIRST SOUTH AMERICAN COUNTRY TO BE INVITED, OCCASION WHICH IS ATTENDED BY MORE THAN TEN THOUSAND AGENTS FROM THE AUDIOVISUAL SECTOR, INCREASING THE POSSIBILITIES OF DIFFUSING AUTHORS THE ONE WHICH A NATIONAL DELEGATION OF MORE THAN ONE HUNDRED PRODUCERS AND DIRECTORS PARTICIPATED". HE ADDED THAT SUCH EVENT "ALLOWED CHILE TO POSITION ITS COUNTRY IMAGE THROUGH CULTURE, CONSIDERING THAT GERMANY IS THE THIRD DESTINATION MARKET FOR NATIONAL AUDIOVISUAL EXPORTS. HE COMMENTED THAT THE SOURCES OF FINANCING PROVIDED BY THE COUNCIL OF ART AND THE AUDIOVISUAL INDUSTRY WAS ALSO MANAGED, WITH MORE THAN NINE BILLION A YEAR, CORPORATION FOR THE PROMOTION OF PRODUCTION - CORFO AND THE NATIONAL COUNCIL OF TELEVISION (CNTV)".
