EL DESPACHO cree que el audiovisual es una herramienta que propicia habilidades creativas y sociales para tener conciencia de la dramaturgia del mundo y la complejidad de cada ser humano. Más que aspectos técnicos, enfatizamos el desarrollo de la sensibilidad que nos permita estar y sentirnos conectados con el tejido social y la vida a nuestro alrededor.

EL DESPACHO trabaja principalmente en México y Los Países Bajos, pero proyectos anteriores también han tenido lugar en países como Argentina, Indonesia, Marruecos, Perú, Suiza y Estados Unidos.

Las principales actividades de EL DESPACHO son:
  • Desarrollo y producción de películas y documentales
    • Organización de talleres, encuentros/intercambios y proyectos colaborativos para cineastas, artistas visuales, estudiantes y niños
