Films in Progress, the twice-yearly event organised by the San Sebastian and Toulouse Festivals, is now receiving submissions for Films in Progress 27.
This initiative has the objective of contributing to the completion of Latin-American feature films faced with difficulties at the post-production stage. Six films selected by the committees of both festivals will be presented to an audience composed exclusively of film industry professionals in order that they may contribute to their completion and distribution.
Films in Progress fosters exchange and cooperation between the producers of the films presented and members of the international industry; it has contributed not only to turning the spotlight on new talents but also to the completion and commercialisation of some of the most outstanding feature films to have come out of Latin America in recent years: Tony Manero by Pablo Larraín, Gloria by Sebastián Lelio, Sangre by Amat Escalante, Infancia Clandestina by Benjamín Ávila, La sirga by William Vega, Pelo Malo by Mariana Rondón, Historia del miedo by Benjamín Naishtat and Matar a un hombre by Alejandro Fernández Almendras, among others.
With thirteen years of trajectory behind it, Films in Progress has become a consolidated initiative not to be missed by producers and industry members on both shores of the Atlantic.
The following awards will be given at Films in Progress 27:
