Lina Paola Rodríguez Fernández

For ten years, Lina Rodríguez has been Director General of the Cartagenas de Indias International Film Festival, the oldest cinematic event and one of the most powerful in Latin America. Over this decade of work she has sought, together with public-private alliances, to democratise the Festival by launching free film programmes and campaigns thanks to which she has succeeded in taking the seventh art to regions with few resources and difficult access in Colombian territory.

Her work as a cultural manager has expanded beyond the actual Festival, achieving a declaration according to which the FICCI is recognised as Cultural Heritage of Colombia, leading to its consolidation as a commitment to the economic and social enhancement of Cartagena and of the country.

With the implementation of programmes such as Cine en los Barrios, Barrios al cine, and recently the FICCI Móvil, she has managed to take the Festival out of Cartagena and around the country in order to make direct contact with communities and achieve full democracy of access to moving images, also enabling an exercise of reconciliation in communities riddled with violence and where the light of cinema engineers their coming together in unconventional spaces.

Lina Rodríguez is convinced that the FICCI constitutes an educational tool that builds social fabric, which, as well as being an outstanding event on the Colombian cultural scene, extends to a process of self-criticism and reflection that allows its spectators to discover the world through cinema.
