The San Sebastian Festival adds two strategic partners to the Co-production Forum, consolidating a key triangle for the Latin American and European film industry.
On the one hand, the Producers Network, the ideal framework and essential meeting place for producers at the Festival de Cannes Marché du Film, the most important event in the world film industry. The agreement permits the producers of the Latin American projects selected for the San Sebastian Co-production Forum to attend the coming edition of the Producers Network or the Producers Workshop.
On the other hand, six producers of the European projects selected for the Forum will have the opportunity to participate in the coming edition of Ventana Sur, a market organized by the Instituto Nacional de Cine y Artes Audiovisuales de Argentina (INCAA) and the Marché du Film, taking place annually in Buenos Aires and constituting a bridge between the Latin-American audiovisual industry and the rest of the world. The European producers will have the chance to present their projects to industry professionals.
With this agreement, the San Sebastian Co-production Forum aims to promote the projects selected and extend the network of professional contacts for their producers thanks to their participation in the Cannes and Ventana Sur markets.
The Europe-Latin America Co-production Forum is aimed at developing fiction and transmedia projects with a minimum duration of 60 minutes and 20% of their financing already assured. European projects should have an express link with Latin America.
The projects to participate in the Forum will be chosen by the Festival Selection Committee based on the reports of three international experts: Sophie Bourdon, Manuel Pérez Estremera and Federico Veiroj.
