Activity

Organization

Description

Our association arises from the work of a group of documentary makers in Argentina that for years we come to pose proposals and opening up the debate on the existing forms of production. As Integral Filmmakers we perceive and defend the documentary film as a process of scientific research, where we free, without intermediaries to impose preconceived methodologies and structures, our artistic potential. We refuse to think the documentary as cultural goods, and therefore we seek new ways of production and exhibition.

Objective

The Principal Objectives are to: a) Gather integral filmmakers, directors, producers and technicians from the argentine documentary realizations, in order to promote, expand, enhance and provide continuity to the national documentary production, in any of its media; b) Identify interests, motivations, fields of application and common problem areas of the documentary and applied to their integration through dialogue, work-sharing and solidarity; c) Develop a critical analysis and a wide debate to deepen technical aspects, expressive, aesthetic, economic, productive, technological, theoretical and practical aspects linked to the creation of works of nonfiction; d) Propose public policies that encourages, promote and support the production, distribution and exhibition of the documentary around the country, and promote their implementation; e) Elaborate and to present proposals to the National Institute of Cinematography and Audiovisual Arts (INCAA) and Argentinean relevant government agencies to achieve a specific policy for the documentary; f) Promote the figure and the role of the Integral filmmaker, as an efficient operator in audiovisual production schemes; g) Establish links with other associations and organizations, both nationally and international who share our goals and interests. As well as documentary makers, exhibitors, distributors and producers whose work or history may result to be significant to the work of the association; h) Spread among the documentary makers information and knowledge related to documentary filmmaking activity.
