The San Sebastian Festival opens its call for the VII Europe-Latin America Co-Production Forum
The submission deadline is 15 June
Monday, April 16th, 2018

The Europe-Latin America Co-Production Forum is a benchmark platform for promoting new audiovisual projects between both film industries. It is also a meeting point for accredited industry guests at the Festival where they can promote professional agreements and exchange experiences. The Forum will have a first day, 23 September, dedicated to presentation of the projects selected (pitching session), and three days of one-to-one meetings with their producers and directors, coinciding with Films in Progress 34 and the second edition of Glocal in Progress.

The projects compete for four awards given by important international institutions: the EFADs European Film Agency Directors and the Conference of Ibero-American Cinematographic Authorities (CACI); Eurimages; ARTE; and the San Sebastian Festival. Furthermore, the Producers Network at the Marché du Film-Festival de Cannes and the National Institute of Cinema and Audiovisual Arts-INCAA will favour the international trajectory of the projects through the agreement “Forjando Alianzas”.

The Co-Production Forum is open to the submission of developing European and Latin American film projects with a minimum duration of 60 minutes and 20% of their funding already guaranteed. European projects must have an express connection with Latin America. Being the first time a project has been submitted to an international forum will be a special advantage.

Those responsible for the selected projects will have the opportunity to find strategic, industrial and financial partners from all over the world to complete the funding of their projects. More than 800 professionals participated in the Forum in 2017.

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

Awards
  • Best Project Award, consisting of 10,000 euros (gross) for the majority producer of the winning project.
  • EFADs-CACI Europe-Latin America Co-production Award, given by the European Film Agency Directors Association and the Conference of Ibero-American Cinematographic Authorities, comes with EUR 20,000 for the majority producer of the winning project.
  • Eurimages Award for Co-production Development, with EUR 20,000 for the majority European producer of one of the projects selected, eligible by Eurimages.
  • ARTE will give the ARTE International Prize consisting of EUR 6,000 for one of the selected projects.
  • Thanks to the “Forging Alliances” agreement signed with the Producers Network (Marché du Film-Festival de Cannes) and the Institute of Cinematography and Audiovisual Arts-INCAA, both organisers of Ventana Sur in Buenos Aires, the projects selected for the Forum will have the opportunity to continue making international progress at said events.
