c) Specialized qualification pilot

Encuentros 2020 is a comprehensive strategy to strengthen production, circulation, heritage, criticism and research within the framework of national film festivals and audiovisual exhibitions. In 2020 it will be present in the Cartagena, Manizales and Cali Film Festivals. A public call is made to select projects, who later receive the adviseand accompaniment of national and international experts. Six meetings will be held in 2020 that include the International Producers Meeting (feature films and series), the Meeting of Colombian Film Festivals and Shows, the Meeting of Regional Talents and Tales, the Meeting of New Media and Interactive Contents, the Criticism and Research Meeting and the Meeting of Archives and Heritage. Approximately 48 projects will be strengthened and 96 professionals will receive skill-building training.

The Shooting in 4K Workshop was held in 2019 with the support of Netflix and in association with Congo Films, Labo Digital, the Bogota Chamber of Commerce, the Bogota Cinematheque and the Association of Independent Producers (Asocinde) to offer qualified training to 35 post-producers in 4K filming with international tutors.

The specialized qualification pilot was carried out in 2019 as a result of a needs assessment carried out with film and television producers. The workshops were designed and organized in association with the Bogota Cinematheque and the support of the Jorge Tadeo Lozano University; they were conducted by Esteban Rey (Argentina) for the occupations of Director's assistant and Line Producer. Each workshop was attended by international experts from Mexico, Puerto Rico, Argentina and Colombia; 57 professionals received this technical qualification.
