The Colombian Film Heritage Foundation has created a virtual art exhibition as part of the celebration of its 36th anniversary. This exhibition features the best posters in the history of Colombian cinema over the last 100 years.
The exhibition "is a way to celebrate the legacy and work of the Foundation around the rescue, restoration and dissemination of audiovisual materials such as films, documentaries and other moving images, which are part of the audiovisual heritage of Colombia," according to an official statement.
All lovers of film and cinema can enjoy the complete curation of film posters on the website of the Fundación Patrimonio Filmico: patrimoniofilmico.org.co/carteles
This selection of 60 posters covers from the silent film era (1925), through the first sound and color films, to the year 2021. These elements related to Colombian cinema have been recovered and preserved by the Foundation in its 36 years of work.
This selection of posters that are part of the Foundation's Documentation Center present those produced for the restored versions of silent films, a period that took place almost 100 years ago, and those made for some of the films released in the 60s, 70s and 80s of the 20th century, as well as several posters from the 21st century.
An on-site exhibit in Bogotá
In addition to the virtual exhibition for the entire public, visitors to the city of Bogotá will also be able to enjoy this selection, specifically at the July 20 Portal of the TransMilenio and the El Chicó Museum.
On the other hand, in the corridor under the stairs of the July 20 Portal of the TransMilenio, users of this public transport service will be able to find a selection of 10 posters in a physical form, with which they can interact and access a virtual exhibit through QR codes.
Both exhibitions are already on display, as well as the one installed at the El Chicó Museum, where there are 13 posters of our national cinematography, five video cameras and a moviola. Visiting hours for this cultural center and the cost of tickets can be found on its website: museodelchico.com
