About us

Manifest

LA SELVA, CREATIVE ECOSYSTEM is born of the desire to transform the dynamics of cinematographic production and the will to make author’s films with new visions. How we look and how we want to be seen are two axes of a necessary reflection on our relationship with the world.

La selva is a space for experimentation of all cinematographic creative processes, from writing to post production through other ways of disseminating works and contents.

We explore other production, financing and distribution logics. Our highest value is the collective work, that’s why we expand the concept of author to include all the artist that participate in the realization of the cinematographic work

We produce films that diversify the looks towards the world, and allow to rethink the image from a perspective that converge with decolonial, feminist and libertarian visions, among others.

We promote the training of new publics through the creation of spaces of dialogue, reflection and learning of the audiovisual language.

We are our own agent of change, so from a cooperative organizational base and solidarity economy we work with values ​​such as horizontality, collectivity and transparency.

We produce films that diversify the looks towards the world, and allow to rethink the image from a perspective that converge with decolonial, feminist and libertarian visions, among others.
