WIP Europa
Who can participate?
Rules & Regulations

Intended for films with mostly European production, WIP Europa is an evolution of Glocal in Progress which now opens to all European films at the post-production stage. Furthermore, WIP Europa will now screen six films in post-production to an audience of producers, distributors, sales agents and programmers, among other professionals, who can contribute to their completion and international circulation.

The films selected for WIP Europa will compete for the WIP Europa Industry Award and for the WIP Europa Award going to the winning film of the Industry Award.

With this new direction of WIP Europa, the Festival strengthens its commitment to creation and to the industry, lending shape with WIP Latam and the Europe-Latin America Co-Production Forum to a benchmark platform for the coming together between both film industries.
