CHAVEZ CARVAJAL, Hugo. Circulation and distribution of ethnographic films in Latin America. Universitas [online]. 2017, n.27, pp.19-43. ISSN 1390-8634.

While visual anthropology, as the roof under which is usually wrapped this films, enjoys good health in the region and new educational and research projects are generated every year, It has not been the same with the diffusion, distribution and exhibition despite the long tradition of documentary film linked to the anthropological view in countries such as Argentina, Colombia and Mexico. In the last decade, in parallel, they have significantly changed the logic of consumption and circulation of films. This scene presents new opportunities. The purpose is twofold, on one side analyzes the importance of building spaces for the formation of audiences such as festivals and exhibitions, starting from the premise that the future of every film depends on how it can reach the people. By the other side seeks to provide material for consultation and guidance for those interested in distributing audiovisual works of ethnographic cutting.
