17 projects in development from 11 countries to be presented at the V Europe-Latin America Co-Production Forum
The Forum will run on September 19th, 20th and 21st in the framework of the San Sebastian Festival’s 64th edition
Monday, August 8th, 2016

Sixteen projects, most of them never seen before at international co-production forums, have been selected from a total of 194 projects submitted from 28 countries. Additionally, in the framework of the Festival’s collaboration with the Ibermedia Programme, another project selected in the Workshop to develop film projects from Central America and the Caribbean will participate in the Co-Production Forum out of competition.

The final selection includes projects by directors and production companies of recognised track record alongside directorial debuts and production companies of recent creation.

Many of the directors and producers participating in this V Europe-Latin America Co-Production Forum have already presented other films at the Festival, such as Diego Dubcovsky, Andrés Longares, Aly Muritiba, Alejandro Fernández Almendras and Celina Murga.

Projects presented at previous editions of the Forum have been selected for some of the most prestigious international festivals in 2016: El soñador / The Dreamer (formerly Donde sueñan los salvajes), by Adrián Saba was premiered in the Generation section at the Berlinale; Las Elegidas, by David Pablos, which participated in Un Certain Regard at the Festival de Cannes in 2015 carried off five Ariel Awards (including Best Film and Best Director), and selected for the Locarno Festival are La idea de un lago (formerly Pozo de Aire) by Milagros Mumenthaler in the Official Competition and El Auge del Humano / The Human Surge by Eduardo Williams in Cineasti del Presente. Finally, Jesús (formerly Niño Nadie) by Fernando Guzzoni will compete in the Official Selection of the San Sebastian Festival.


The Award for Best Project at the 2016 V Europe-Latin America Co-Production Forum, with €10,000.

The ARTE International Prize presented by Arte France Cinéma, consisting of €5,000 for one of the selected projects.

Complementing the San Sebastian Forum and thanks to collaboration with the Marché du Film - Festival de Cannes and the I.N.C.A.A. (National Institute of Cinema and Audiovisual Arts) in Argentina, some of these projects will have the opportunity to continue on their international journey by participating in the Ventana Sur market and in the coming edition of Producers Network - Festival de Cannes. This itinerary will also contribute to lending their international projection a decisive boost.

The Europe-Latin America Co-Production Forum is promoted by the Basque Government Department of Economic Development and Competitiveness.
