What is the sense of making festivals that celebrate cinema in the context of the systemic crisis that we are going through? It could be thought that not much, especially if we consider that a majority of the films released massively share being works produced in the logic of the current entertainment industry. Films whose narratives enhance a certain prevailing worldview, around which it seems easier to imagine the end of the planet than the end of capitalism. Works where the revolution is embodied by schizophrenic clowns and the neoliberal democracy defended by philophascist superheroes. An entertainment industry that is positioned with a central role in the naturalization of the tragic contradictions that currently characterize the World System.

This is precisely why it is more necessary than ever to hold Festivals and all kinds of film events that help amplify access to those filmmakers and artists, who, radically questioning the state of our world, propose alternative narratives with which to learn it, understand it and perhaps intervene it. Peripheral and expanded cinemas, works that regain empathy for other forms of human interaction, not mediated by the exploitation of the human being and his environment.

It is from this feeling + thought that we want to invite you again, dear friends, to be part of the fourth version of AricaDoc, International Documentary Film Festival. Which, for reasons that we all know, will be done in a hybrid way; considering face-to-face functions in public spaces in the city, in addition to an online digital platform, specially designed to safeguard the viewing experience and the safety of the participating works.

Although the matrix of our festival has been the face-to-face and collective experience of cinema, in this new context we have decided to embrace the potential of virtuality. With which we hope to reach new communities, in addition to integrating in our programming Non-Fiction works that have their primary ecosystem on the Internet, such as, for example: geolocated soundscapes, photogrammetry and 3d tours, interactive and intertextual documentaries, video works in 360º and augmented reality among many other possibilities. Thus adding a new category, which we have called "Online Experiences", which will accompany our regular programming of feature films, short films and documentaries by and for girls, boys and young people.

We are a non-competitive and non-commercial Festival, an integral part of a cultural action program that works to expand the cinematographic experience in urban, rural and indigenous communities in the North of Chile. We know that cinema will not by itself change the societies in which we live, but we are convinced that it can be part of broader transformative processes that seek to activate more just and friendly forms of social and environmental coexistence.

Although the Festival is planned as a non-competitive event, we want to leave the awarding of the works to the public by voting, since we believe that a good way to become part of this film meeting also involves the possibility that it has the community to express themselves and recognize the work of the filmmakers. Therefore, the distinctions in the categories will be as follows:

· Audience Award - Honorable Mention

short films

· Audience Award - Best International Short Film

Online Experiences

· Audience Award - Honorable Mention
