That's why we want to share the letters of FONDEC, communicating the new resolution for not to supporting the Festival by the agreement (remembering that there was already a decision favorable to an extension of the existing agreement between the two institutions, which was rejected once assumed the new commission); and the Festival's directory, making known its official position.
     
    FONDEC SOON BE MUST DEFINE WHETHER THE 22 EDITION IN 2013.
