Locumental Documentary Festival in Colombia

The annual Locumental Documentary Festival opened on Colombia’s Caribbean coast on July 1, and for the first time includes educational events for children. This is the festival’s third outing, after its beginnings in 2008 when the Alliançe Française in Barranquilla teamed up with Caribbean Cinema to showcase local documentaries as well as others on such themes as globalization, music and the environment. This year these topics will be re-explored, while adding a focus on youth education through seminars and forums that “combine entertainment and learning through audio-visual projections and academic processes that drive new ways of experiencing and imagining the world.”

The 2010 festival is covering all seven departments of the Caribbean region, including the islands of San Andrés and Providencia, as well as activities in international locations such as Berlin, New York and Florence.

Admission to all events is free. Check the festival’s website for more information.

  1. Hey Guys !

    After a one year tour, Sachta is back with a new enraged, powerful and energetic album, and with the will to share it with the rest of the world.

    As their manager regarding the colombian tour I woul like to get in touch with you or any person who might help me organize gigs in Colombia. They are not animated with the need of money but they would like to travel without having too much expenses for travelling or housing ; if they sere to work with you, would you pay all or part of these expenses ?

    I am fully available for any questions you might have on any subjects regarding this tour.
