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 not 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 the 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 of Co-production Award and the Arte Kino International Prize.

As an extension to the San Sebastian Forum, and as a result of the "Forging Alliances" 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 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.

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.

Since it was created in 2012, the Europe-Latin America Co-Production Forum has had 114 selected projects, of which 47 have been completed, 28 are currently at the pre-production or postproduction stage, and 22 have been selected for international festivals such as Berlin, Cannes, Locarno, San Sebastian, Sundance and Venice.
Success stories: La noche de 12 años (A Twelve-Year Night)by Álvaro Brechner, selected for the Orizzonti section of the Venice Festival, 2018; La tierra y la sombra (Land and Shade)by Cesar Augusto Acevedo, presented at the Semaine de la Critique, 2015; Las elegidas (The Chosen Ones) by David de Pablos, selected for Un Certain Regard at the Cannes Festival, 2015; and Jesús by Fernando Guzzoni, a competitor in San Sebastian Festival’s Official Selection in 2016
