Calls for incentives with a differentiated approach focused on population seeking to guarantee equal opportunity in the access to and distribution of public resources to groups that do not enjoy the same conditions and audiovisual training of those located in urban areas and department capitals.
The following calls were launched in 2020:
a) Regional Talent Scholarships, INI Training Scholarship for Indigenous Peoples and Research Scholarships for the Management of the Colombian Audiovisual Heritage, Indigenous Peoples (PACCPI) and Afro Communities (PACCA) Chapters in the National Stimulus Programme of the Ministry of Culture.
b) Short Film Production for Ethnic Communities and Regional Feature Film categories in the Call of the Film Development Fund (FDC).
The calls have been designed to give ethnic and diverse communities a greater representation on the screen, and a chance to preserve their memory, as well as to participate in training programs for the creation of content.
In 2019, 166 proposals were presented and 26 incentives were awarded from the Regional Talent Scholarships of the National Incentives Programme of the Ministry of Culture.
The INI Programme targeting indigenous peoples, the research grants for indigenous and Afro Colombian heritage, ethnic short films and regional feature films will be launched between march and may of 2020.
