Call open for the III Europe-Latin America Co-production forum
To take place on September 22, 23 and 24 in the frame of the 62nd San Sebastian Festival
Friday, April 25th, 2014

Project submission deadline: June 15

Created in 2012, the Europe-Latin America Co-production Forum is today a benchmark platform and hub between both film worlds. The Forum, which will run on the same days as Films in Progress 26, is an opportunity to strengthen co-production ties, thereby promoting audiovisual projects of greater magnitude, cooperation between professionals and increased access to international markets.

The Co-production Forum is open to feature film projects from Europe and Latin America with a minimum duration of 60 minutes and 20% of their financing already assured. European projects must have a specific connection with Latin America. Projects experimenting with new transmedia, crossmedia and multiplatform formats will also be accepted, provided that film is one of their main platforms, as will projects that address alternative distribution channels and financing formulas.

The Festival will select a maximum of 20 projects based on the reports of three international experts: Andrea Stavenhagen, Manuel Pérez Estremera and Javier Martín.

The project heads and other industry members will be able to find strategic, industrial and financial partners from all over the world to complete the financing of their projects.

In the two years of existence of the Forum, submitted projects rose in number from 104 to 160, and the one-to-one meetings with industry professionals from 365 to 461. Of the 17 projects selected in 2012, 6 films have now been shot and 9 of the films from the 15 projects selected in 2013 are expected to be completed in 2014.

At the III Europe-Latin America Co-production Forum an Award will go to the Best Project, with a cash prize of €10,000, sponsored by EGEDA, the Audiovisual Producers’ Rights Management Association.

And thanks to the Forging Alliances agreement, signed with the Marché du Film-Festival de Cannes Producers Network and the National Institute of Cinema and Audiovisual Arts-INCAA, both organisers of Ventana Sur in Buenos Aires, the projects selected in the Forum will be able to continue their international trajectory at these events.
