One of several important events which predict the next batch of festival and prize winning Latino films, the San Sebastian Festival is launching  the 2nd Europe-Latin America Co-production Forum, thereby consolidating its position as a benchmark platform and hub between both film worlds. This Forum is an opportunity to promote projects of greater magnitude and strengthen the European and Latin American industries by encouraging cooperation between professionals and opening out to new international markets.

In 2013 they will introduce two important new features. In the first place, the Forum will run for 3 days on the same dates as Films in Progress, one of the major activities among industry professionals. An announcement will also be on the project to receive the Europe-Latin America Co-production Forum Award of €10,000.   

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. The same applies to projects addressing new distribution channels and financing formulas.

The Festival will select a maximum of 20 projects based on the reports of three international experts.

Those 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.

Thanks to the Forging Alliances agreement, signed with the Producers Network of the Marché du Film-Festival de Cannes and the Instituto Nacional de Cine y Artes Audiovisuales-INCAA, both organizers of Ventana Sur in Buenos Aires, the projects selected in the Forum will be able to continue their international trajectory at these events.
