Welcome to Shoot in Chile
Chile is a long and narrow strip of land where almost every kind of climate, landscape and people can be found. It is also a country that enjoys a political and social stability that has awarded itself a status as a model of economic growth and reliability in a global context: our country is synonymous of productivity, performance and institutional soundness.
As a country, we are relatively small in size, but our many strengths and economic prowess has enabled us to position ourselves as a competent strategic partner as well as a gateway to reach other markets. Our well-known commercial openness has resulted in solid and meaningful exchanges with 57 countries around the world: we keep up over 20 international economic agreements -including free trade treaties- as well as agreements of economic partnership and economic complementation, among others. In recent years Chile became the first South American nation to be a member of the OECD (Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development), in recognition of the positive effects of long-term planning and the adoption of correct development policies over the years.
Chile s unique geography presents itself as a wide array of multiple landscapes, with a climate diversity of continental proportions. Within the same distance between Los Angeles and New York, it is possible to find a stark contrast between sceneries of opposing characteristics: from the Antarctic icecap to the world's driest desert (Atacama) or from a modern Metropolis such as Santiago to the distant Easter Island. There are also plenty of unspoiled landscapes full of rivers, lakes, glaciers, forests, mountains, beaches, cliffs, forests, moorlands, cities, towns, villages, etc. In addition to the unique beauty of some of these singular sites, just about any other landscape in the world can be easily mimicked within our country at a very low cost.
Chile has increasingly positioning itself as a recognized supplier of quality audiovisual products, as well as an excellent provider of services to cater the international film industry, mainly in the production of commercials, but also making important advances in film and television. Every year, at least three world-class productions are developed, shot and produced in the country. This is why the Chilean film community has the ability to meet every demand during any of the stages involved in the film production chain. Quality services and international standards are a common place within our technicians, ranking us as one of the best prepared countries in the region providing an attractive cost-quality ratio. Full film production services, state-of-the art soundstages and last generation equipment rentals are easily accessed in Chile.
The good health of our film industry has been enhanced internationally by the presence and poise of our films, amounting to nominations to major awards and the seizure of several prizes in first-rate international festivals, showcasing our films in events and markets such as Cannes, Berlinale, Sundance, Goya, among many more. This certainly proves that our industry has achieved international quality standards in its film and television output, but with budgets way under those of productions obtaining very similar results.
Chile s modern infrastructure and excellent connectivity is by far the best in Latin America, akin to standards found in the developed world and sometimes even excelling those of many European countries. There are also comparative advantages in terms of implementing new businesses with low startup and operational costs, comprehensive taxation and readily available office space.
The National Council for Culture and the Arts, acting upon its commit-ment to the development of the film industry has created the Film Commission Chile which aims to convert Chile in a solid, robust film production platform for Latin America. We strongly believe that the existing advantages in our country for the development of this industry have a limitless potential that goes way beyond being just a set of good locations or a provider of low production costs. We are convinced that this currently represents an investment opportunity for Chilean nationals and foreigners alike and this is why we truly hope you will be a part of it.

Chile along its territory length of 4,329 kilometers comprises almost every climate on the planet. This great worth of film and photography sceneries resides in the abundant, diverse and unique landscapes in each location, an important asset for the film industry.
Similarly, Chile is equally diverse in its population. Within its territory there are descendants of immigrants from almost all corners of the globe that have created distinct neighborhoods, small towns and in some cases cities, often reproducing the aesthetics of their homelands. There are also numerous native settlements with strong attachment to their autochthonous traditions. This coexistence finally translates into a wide array of customs, cultures, ethnicities and lifestyles.
The city of Santiago -Chile's capital- is currently in vogue and well positioned as a leader in Latin America because of its quality and excellence in facilities, technology and a highly skilled contingent of professionals capable of undertaking all film industry requirements.
