Ethnic program

Since 2020, the Ministry of Information and Communication Technologies (MinTIC) has played a key role in developing activities concerning Television and Digital Contents in the Bogotá Audiovisual Market, prioritizing the participation of filmmakers and audiovisual producers belonging to ethnic groups (indigenous, NARP, and Rrom), with diverse capabilities (deaf, hard of hearing, blind, visually impaired), and for different regional channels.

In the 13th edition of BAM, these activities will have a special place in the market: the TV Lounge, which will hold its agenda both online and face-to-face at the Experience Venue at the Gimnasio Moderno in Bogotá.

The TV Lounge also includes the One to Many market sessions with OTT platforms, TV channels, and buyers of TV and digital content. A space prioritized for accredited winners of MinTIC 2021 calls and winners of BAM 2022 calls.

This laboratory will have two focuses: 1) information related to the distribution chain in order to understand how the industry and market logics work, as well as all the legal processes, the technical processes for completion, and plans for distribution and recovery; and 2) the project’s distribution and recovery plan.
