For the first time in our country, ACTE, the exhibition of Audiovisual Content and Technologies organized by Fisa of the GL events group, and the Fundación Más Industria Audiovisual, will be held in person and virtually. In 2023, the first version of the ACTE fair will be held in Santiago de Chile, an event that will bring together in one place the Chilean audiovisual industry with national and international actors for the promotion, marketing, networking and strengthening of the industry in our country. The exhibition will be spread over more than 4,000 m2, will host nearly 100 exhibitors and sponsors from 25 participating countries, and will showcase more than 200 brands. The event will also feature 50 conferences and audiovisual activations in which more than 6,000 visitors will be able to participate. ACTE has broad institutional support, with 14 sponsors, including the Ministry of Culture, Arts and Heritage, Invest Chile, ProChile, Corfo, Academy Chile, the Inter-American Development Bank and APCT. At the country level, the audiovisual industry represents 2.2% of GDP, 5% of the country’s workforce, and has an active ecosystem with more than 220 actors, including film and TV production companies, production and post-production services companies, animation and video game developers, advertising agencies, universities and training schools, among others. The exhibition will seek to promote the country’s image and Chile as a filming destination in the audiovisual market, showcase achievements and local audiovisual production capacity, introduce new technologies, educational aspects and content not available in the country to the market and contribute to attracting new sources of financing and national and international actors. The general manager of Fisa, Francisco Sotomayor, stressed that “ACTE 2023 will reaffirm the important role of Chile in the audiovisual industry, show the development that our country has achieved, and hopes to exchange experiences to follow the international development, thus enhancing Chilean artistic production and elaboration.” “We believe that, after two years of health crisis and as a result of covid-19, it is time to empower and boost the audiovisual industry. Our country is a great filming destination, as it stands out for its landscapes and climatic subtypes, such as the Atacama Desert, the tropics of Easter Island and the glaciers in Magallanes,” added Sotomayor. Chile has been awarded 240 international awards and milestones since 2009, among them “A Bear Story” as best animated short film (Academy Awards, 2016), “A Fantastic Woman” as best foreign film (Academy Awards, 2018) and “Agent Mole”, selected among the finalists in the Academy Awards (2021) in the category of best documentary feature film”. MODALITY On this occasion, Acte will be held in person and virtually through ACTE Connect, an easy-to-use platform that will maintain the exchange of knowledge and the generation of business opportunities. The platform will also have a space for networking between exhibitors and visitors, and an open Marketplace where companies will be able to exhibit products and services.
