Conceived to boost international co-productions/ventures and encourage production in Latin America, LATC assists IFP producers in understanding feasibility of Brazilian partnerships for their projects and expanding their international contacts while in Rio. The producers also participate in one-on-one business meetings and network opportunities in the RioMarket and attend previously scheduled meetings organized by LATC. The Rio Festival offers participating IFP producers four nights hotel and festival accreditation. Producers are expected to participate in a panel on October 3rd on "Trends in US Independent Filmmaking" and also consider Brazilian projects for possible co-production.
Applicants should have at least one feature-film producing credit and be a current IFP member. All applications are due in house by Friday, July 26th. Final applicants are subject to approval by the RioMarket. To apply, please send a resume and one page cover letter explaining your interest in the program to Amy Dotson, Deputy Director & Head of Programming at adotson[a]ifp.org.
