Accessibility settings

The 12th edition of the Women's Film Festival will take place from March 22 to 27 and will feature in-person and online screenings.

FEMCINE, the Women's Film Festival, has become in its twelve years of existence a fundamental space, both nationally and internationally, for the exhibition and dissemination of films made by women directors from different parts of the world.

The new version, which will take place between March 22 and 27, will feature productions from 22 countries, four competitions, retrospectives, forums, sign languages and training activities.

The opening film will be "Malas que danzan", by the outstanding Chilean filmmaker Verónica Quense. It is a documentary filmed in Santiago that portrays with a critical and sharp look the exploitation of capital over women.


There will be 4 competitions: International Feature Film Competition, International Short Film Competition, Chilean Film School Short Film Competition and FEMCINE Work In Progress.

The selection of the International Feature Competition is made up of films, including fiction and documentaries, which are making their premiere in Chile and debuted at prestigious festivals such as Cannes, Rotterdam, Berlin and Mar del Plata. Competing in this category are: "A Night of Knowing Nothing" by Payal Kapadia (India, France), "Las cercanas" by María Álvarez (Argentina), "Autoerótica" by Andrea Hoyos (Peru), "Celts" by Milica Tomović (Serbia) and "El pa(de)ciente" by Constanza Fernández Bertrand (Chile).

The International Short Film Competition is made up of 10 works that have been screened at Cannes and Locarno, among other festivals.
