In 2012, the San Sebastian Festival launched the I Europe-Latin America Co-Production Forum. Its priority objectives are to foster the development of audiovisual projects, encourage collaboration between professionals and promote an opening out towards new international markets.
Intended for developing works, the Co-Production Forum is open to film projects from Europe and Latin America.
Those responsible for projects will have the opportunity to present their works to industry members at pitching sessions and they will receive a personal agenda of appointments with professionals interested in participating in their projects.
The Forum also includes initiatives to prompt informal meetings between participants and activities to encourage the exchange of experiences and knowledge of key matters related to the audiovisual industry past and present.
It is also a gathering place for all industry professionals present at San Sebastian with its own matchmakers crew to facilitate contacts.
As an extension to the San Sebastian Forum, and as a result of the "Forging Alliances" collaboration agreement signed with the Producers Network of the Marché du Film-Festival de Cannes and Argentina’s INCAA (Instituto Nacional de Cine y Artes Audiovisuales), a number of these projects will be able to continue their international trajectory thanks to participation in the Ventana Sur market and in the coming edition of the Cannes Producers Network. This initiative will lend a decisive boost to their international promotion.
The Co-production Forum is open to Latin American and European projects at the development stage. European projects must have a direct link with Latin America: involvement of a Latin American producer, shooting locations, actors in the leading roles or subject in the script.
