16 projects from 13 countries will be presented at the VI Europe-Latin America Co-Production Forum
The Forum will have an extra day and will take place from 24 to 27 September
Tuesday, August 8th, 2017

Fifteen projects have been selected from a total of 165 submitted, from 29 countries.

The countries with projects selected in the Forum are Argentina, Austria, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Cuba, France, Germany, Italy, The Netherlands, Mexico, Spain and Switzerland.

The selection includes seven first or second works alongside works by acclaimed filmmakers. Some of the participants in the VI Europe-Latin America Co-Production Forum have already attended the Festival with other films, such as the moviemakers Pablo Agüero (Eva no duerme / Eva Doesn’t Sleep, Official Selection 2015) and Mikel Rueda (New York. Quinta Planta, Zinemira 2016) and the producer Macarena López (Rara, Horizontes Award 2016). Furthermore, the new projects produced by Diego Lerman, who also directs Una especie de Familia, and Koldo Zuazua, producer of Morir / Dying both in this year’s Official Selection, will be presented at the Forum.

Half of the projects from the first five editions have now been filmed. Some of them have recently participated at international festivals: El auge del humano / The Human Surge, by Eduardo Williams, winner of the Cineasti del Presenti Golden Leopard at the Locarno Festival 2016, Jesús (Jesus, formerly Niño Nadie) by Fernando Guzzoni, which competed in the Official Selection at the San Sebastian Festival 2016; Rifle (formerly Até o Camiho), by David Pretto, selected for the Forum section at the last Berlinale, and X500 by Juan Andrés Arango, competitor in the Bright Future section at the Rotterdam Festival 2017.

For the first time this year the Europe-Latin America Co-Production Forum will have an extra day, on Sunday 24, at which the pitching session will take place. On the other dates it will coincide with Films in Progress 32 and Glocal in Progress, the new industry activity.
