One of Latin America’s largest audiovisual industry events, the Bogota Audiovisual Market (BAM), kicked off on Monday in Colombia’s capital.
From July 14 to 18, Bogota’s cultural scene will be bursting with creative energy as local and international film producers, distributors, sales agents, and national audiovisual services and television channels come together to share specialist knowledge, build partnerships, and enhance the exchange of film projects, according to the event’s official website.
Along with some 250 investors from 20 countries expected to attend the event, there will be a delegation of more than 30 companies from the UK, this year’s guest of honor.

Tickets for BAM Talks are $2.50 and are available online at the Primera Fila website or at Cine Colombia ticket booths across Colombia.
