The third edition of the Europe-Latin America Co-production Forum till take place on September 22, 23, and 24 as part of the 62nd San Sebastian Film Festival.Created in 2012, the initiative is today a benchmark platform and hub between both film worlds. The Forum, which will run on the same days as Films in Progress 26, is an opportunity to strengthen co-production ties, thereby promoting audiovisual projects of greater magnitude, cooperation between professionals and increased access to international markets.

The Co-production Forum is open to feature film projects from Europe and Latin America with a minimum duration of 60 minutes and 20% of their financing already assured. European projects must have a specific connection with Latin America. Projects experimenting with new transmedia, crossmedia and multiplatform formats will also be accepted, provided that film is one of their main platforms, as will projects that address alternative distribution channels and financing formulas.

The Festival will select a maximum of 20 projects based on the reports of three international experts: Andrea Stavenhagen, Manuel Pérez Estremera and Javier Martín.

The project heads and other industry members will be able to find strategic, industrial and financial partners from all over the world to complete the financing of their projects.
