Beyond Van Gogh Chile: The Immersive Experience

With more than 100 people for the set-up, 10 tons of equipment and more than 1,110 square meters of canvas for the projections, Beyond Van Gogh Chile: The Immersive Experience expects to become one of the favorite panoramas of this summer and to receive around 150,000 people for the entire duration of the show at the Movistar Arena. 

It is an experience with 300 iconic works of art by Dutch painter Vincent Van Gogh, represented in a stunning audiovisual design of 4 trillion pixels. This experience - the first to be held in Latin America - fuses culture and entertainment through cutting-edge technology created by world-renowned audiovisual designers, inviting the public to immerse themselves in a magical journey into the artist's creative world. 


Primavera Sound Chile:

Late last year it was announced that this renowned music festival will land in Chile, marking the first time it will take place in Latin America. Rock, pop, indie and electronic music will take over the Chilean capital between November 7 and 13, with the main venue being the Parque Bicentenario de Cerrillos and including other parts of the city. In this way, Santiago joins Barcelona, Los Angeles and Oporto as a new destination for one of the biggest musical events of the moment.  



In 2011 this festival came to Chile for the first time, a milestone in international and massive musical gatherings in the country, and which was held uninterruptedly every year until the covid-19 health crisis forced the cancellation of the 2020 and 2021 editions. On March 18, 19 and 20, artists of the stature of Foo Fighters, Miley Cirus and The Strokes will perform on the stages of Parque Bicentenario de Cerrillos. 


Film festivals:

There are already several consolidated festivals in Chile that celebrate the seventh art. Between March 22 and 27, the 12th edition of the Women's Film Festival (FEMCINE) will be held, an event dedicated to showcasing the audiovisual works of women filmmakers from around the world. In August a new edition of the already mythical Santiago International Film Festival (SANFIC) will take place, while in October the focus will be on the south of Chile at the 29th version of the Valdivia International Film Festival.
