IBERMEDIA PROJECT (This film is not a competitor for the Awards)
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 fiction and non-fiction 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, as well as talks and round tables to encourage the exchange of experiences and knowledge of key matters related to the audiovisual industry past and present.
The Co-Production Forum takes place at the San Telmo Museum, near the Príncipe Cinemas (venue for Films in Progress and Glocal in Progress screenings). During the event, the Forum also becomes a meeting place for all industry professionals present in San Sebastian.
In the Co-Production Forum, important prizes are awarded as the Best Project Award; the EFADs-CAACI Coproduction Award; the Eurimages Development Co-Production Award and the ArteKino International Prize.
As an extension to the San Sebastian Forum, and as a result of the collaboration agreement signed with 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 in the Ventana Sur (Buenos Aires) and in the coming edition of the Cannes Producers Network. This initiative will lend a decisive boost to their international promotion.
In 2018, collaboration increased between the San Sebastian Film Festival and Ventana Sur, Latin America's biggest film market, organised by the Marché du Film-Festival de Cannes and Argentina's INCAA (National Institute of Cinema and Audiovisual Arts) with the launch of Proyecta. This new activity promotes co-productions with Latin America and fosters the international journey of European projects selected for the Europe-Latin America Co-Production Forum.
