In 2014, Ambulante will expand to South America with Ambulante Colombia. This project starts off within Ambulante Global, an initiative born out of nine years of experience in the organization and production of Ambulante Film Festival in Mexico, and representing the first official attempt to consolidate, in the long term, Ambulante’s presence abroad.
In its first edition, taking place in 2014 from August 26 to September 21, the festival will go to Bogotá, Medellín, Cartagena and Barranquilla, bringing a showing of national and international documentaries praised at the most important film festivals around the globe. In addition to the screenings, Ambulante Colombia will organize discussions and workshops with the guests, outdoors screenings, exhibitions and concerts, all for the festival to consolidate as a new space for entertainment and participation. Most of the screenings and activities will be for free and they will take place in several venues such as museums, cultural centers, movie theaters, schools, universities, libraries, squares, parks and several other public spaces.
Moreover, Ambulante Colombia will be at several cultural events all year round, encouraging partnerships with various society sectors to achieve an interdisciplinary and including dialogue on documentary genre, and to reach more cities and regions in Colombia.
