What are the results achieved so far through the implementation of the measure/initiative?:
After 10 years since its creation, CINEMACHILE has international positioning strategies for the audiovisual sector, which go beyond the members of the Association of Film, and Television Producers (APCT). The indirect beneficiaries of the CINEMACHILE sector brand correspond to all associations of companies or professionals in the audiovisual sector, as well as independent professionals who aspire to export and/or access the international circuit. All of them benefit, or could benefit, from the networks of contacts and expertise developed by the sectorial brand, as well as from the participation in activities and events organized by CINEMACHILE, their inclusion in the International Catalogs (Film or TV) that are published annually, and other graphic promotional pieces (presskit in international markets and festivals), dissemination of their contents on our communication platforms, among other actions that benefit (and have benefited in the past) across the sector, without necessarily belonging to the applicant association, and co-financier of CINEMACHILE. The foregoing, especially because within the APCT there are companies dedicated to the production of products from all subsectors (animation, documentary, fiction, television) with which all the actions that this project contemplates imply an indirect benefit for members of other associations specific to those areas or genres (such as ADOC or ANIMACHI) or diverse, such as APCT and API (which produce all kinds of productions, of all genres and formats). In addition, ADG partners are among our indirect beneficiaries, as well as CHILEACTORES, and SIDARTE partners, which are joined by independent professionals from the sector, and also audiovisual career students.
