Pablo Larraín’s
Cannes Market News
At the moment, Chile has bilateral
co-production agreements
with Argentina, Venezuela, Brazil,
Canada, and France, and is about
to sign others with Spain and Italy.
“From now on, our idea is to make
this list longer,” Chaigneau Alliende
says. “These treaties are fundamental
to developing the Chilean film sector.
For talent, technical possibilities,
seriousness, and compromise,
we’re an excellent partner!”
And, with today’s online
communication, you can work
together long-distance, Turincev,
who co-produced
the Internet, adds: “It was pure
Sci-Fi to me: they were editing
in Chile, we were in Paris, they were
sending us cuts through internet,
and then [we would] discuss [them]
all together, through Skype.”
To attract foreigners, Chile offers a tax
incentive of 19% through a tax credit,
as well as other types of benefits,
depending on the production,
“but [we don’t] want to be known
just for our tax deductions,”
Chaigneau Alliende, concludes.
“One-off productions are not
what we are looking for.We want
long term partnerships.”

A Domestic Market on the Rise
In 2011, Chilean cinema regained a large part of its audience,
after a low over the last few years. Admissions for local flms grew
by an unusual 156% (from 351,243 to 900,341) and Chilean flms’
share of the market went up to 5.28%, still less than in 2002
and 2003 but in line with results from 2006 to 2008. Although
the market needs more independence and stability (American flms
took 92.9% of total admissions in 2011, and the three most popular
Chilean productions accounted for 85% of admissions for local flms),
this audience increase for Chilean flms is good news overall
for a market with great potential for growth.
