Combining the transience of a nanometer (one billionth of a meter) with the most contemporary audiovisual expression, the short video competition “Nanometrajes” was born.
“Nanometrajes” is an annual invitation to all professional and amateur filmmakers to develop their creativity and turn it into works of up to 30 seconds long. The Nanometraje winner of each edition is credited with the coveted “La Hormiga de Cobre” (Copper Ant) trophy.
The response to this contest, starting from 2004, has exceeded all initial expectations, becoming a huge success in its area. Along with encouraging refreshing modern audiovisual creation, “Nanometrajes” has stood out for guaranteeing the exhibition of the best work through such mass media such as TVN.
