Santiago is a cosmopolitan and modern city that mirrors American cities more than any other in South America. Downtown Santiago is commonly referred to as Sanhattan due to its resemblance to the Big Apple. And Viña del Mar and Zapallar are a drive away.
The Chilean coast, by the Pacific Ocean, extends for over three thousand miles and, in the opposite border, rise the Andes, both just an hour away from the capital city. In between, magnificent rivers, canyons, glaciers and deserts (as a matter of fact, the driest one in the world) complete the diverse landscape.
Chile has different types of weather. The weather in the North is dry, with relatively high temperatures that can reach 104° F. In central Chile, the Mediterranean climate makes summers very warm and the winters cool and fairly rainy. The south is cold and wet, with below zero temperatures in Patagonia. There are four seasons in most of the country: summer (December to February), autumn (March to May), winter (June to August) and spring (September to December).
Talent & Casting

In the last ten years, mainly drawn by a growing and stable economy, many immigrants from Eastern Europe and Korea have been choosing Chile as their country of residence.
The cultural boom and the growing film industry have improved the quality and quantity of artists, actors and models. These reasons, as well as the labor laws of Talent, workable to the schedules of audiovisual production, make Chile a great choice when it comes to casting in Latin America
Crew, Equipment & Post
Due to the exponential growth in the amount of productions per year Chile has experienced in the past decade, the film industry has been unceasingly modernizing its equipment. Professionals specialized in all areas –from key grips to directors, from stylists to art directors– have all been acquiring invaluable experience and knowledge regarding their craft.
Most flights from Europe and the United States land in Santiago's International Airport Arturo Merino Benitez. Direct flights arrive from Europe, the rest of Latin America, the US, Australia and New Zealand and easy access to Argentina and Uruguay is available daily by air and land.
