The Latin American film industry, the Canadian Film Industry, the European Film Industry are the main but not the only participants of the San Sebastian 62nd edition Film Festival’s The Industry Club. The Festival's industry department centralizes and coordinates professional activities, networking with Spanish and Basque producers associations, Latin American film institutes, European professional associations and bodies, etc. n 2013, 1292 professionals from 82 companies in 54 countries attended the Festival.

The main activities organized are the Europe-Latin America Co-Production Forum and Films in Progress. In addition, in collaboration with IBAIA (Association of Independent Audiovisual Production Companies of the Basque Country), it organizes the Lau Haizetara Documentary Co-Production Forum.

At the III Europe-Latin America Co-production Forum 15 developing projects from Europe and Latin America will be presented (with at least 20% of their funding already assured). Those responsible for the works will have the opportunity to present their projects (pitching) and will also enjoy a personalized meeting agenda with industry professionals.

The Forum will similarly act as a meeting point for accredited industry guests at San Sebastian, offering in these three days a place to get together and network. In addition, while the Forum is underway, different talks and round tables will be organized in the San Telmo Museum on current issues in the film industry with a view to fostering the exchange of experiences and knowledge.

In the frame of the Forum, this year the San Sebastian Festival is organizing a Focus on Canada , in collaboration with Telefilm Canada. A delegation of 12 Canadian producers will come to San Sebastian to discover the Festival first hand, establish contacts with professionals and participate both in the Co-production Forum and in the other Industry Club activities.
