Films in Progress 29 opens its call for submissions
The new edition will take place on 17 and 18 March in the framework of Cinélatino, Rencontres de Toulouse
Tuesday, November 3rd, 2015

Films in Progress, the twice-yearly event organised by the San Sebastian and Toulouse Festivals, is now receiving submissions for Films in Progress 29.

This initiative has the objective of helping to complete feature films with Latin American production faced with difficulties at the post-production stage. Six films selected by the committees of both festivals will be screened for an audience of professionals in order that they may contribute to their conclusion, distribution and premiere at festivals.
