Who we are?

How we see and how we want to be seen are two axes of a constant reflection on our relationship with the world.

LA SELVA. ECOSISTEMA CREATIU was established by a group of filmmakers with the desire to transform the dynamics of cinematographic production and from the desire to make auteur films with fresh views.

From this passion, we committed to make La selva a space for experimentation of all creative cinematographic processes: from scriptwriting to post-production and the distribution of high-quality content.

We explore other logics of production, financing, and distribution. Our value is collective work and, therefore, we extend the concept of auteur towards the inclusion of all artists participating in the creation of cinematographic works.

We produce films that diversify the perceptions of the world and allow us to rethink the image from a perspective that converges with decolonial and feminist visions, bringing balance and social justice.

We promote the creation of audiences through the making of spaces for dialogue, reflection, and learning of the audiovisual language and open cinema to communities with less access.

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