TODAY! A Conversation on Colombian Cinema

A conversation on Colombian Cinema.

In the last decade, Colombian cinema has experienced remarkable growth, both in terms of the number and the quality of its film productions. In 2011 alone, a record high of 18 Colombian films were released. These 18 releases represent more than twice the number of releases in the previous five years and more than triple the number in the past eight years. To discuss this new wave of Colombian Cinema and the Cinema Laws that have provided the infrastructure for its success, we are pleased to welcome this distinguished panel.
