Call for entries: "Films in Progress"

Thursday 26 May 2016, by SIGNIS

Toulouse, May, 26th, 2016 (Films in progress). “Films in Progress”, the twice-yearly event organized by the San Sebastian and Toulouse Festivals, is now receiving submissions for its 30th edition.

The initiative has the objective of promoting the completion of Latin-American feature films faced with difficulties at the post-production stage and of promoting their international distribution. The films must have a running time of more than 60 minutes and must be totally or partially produced by production companies in Latin American countries.

“Films in Progress” has contributed to the completion and dissemination of remarkable Latin American productions. Films presented at the last three editions, such as Matar a un hombre (To Kill a Man) and Aquí no ha pasado nada (Much Ado about Nothing) by Alejandro Fernández Almendras, Historia del miedo (History of Fear) by Benjamín Naishtat, Ixcanul by Jayro Bustamante, La Mujer de Barro (The Mud Woman) by Sergio Castro, Mi amiga del Parque (My Friend from the Park) by Ana Katz or Rara by pepa San Martín, have gone on to participate and garner awards at important international festivals such as Berlin, Rotterdam and Sundance.

“Films in Progress 30” and the V Europe-Latin America Co-Production Forum will run on the same dates, seeking to generate professional synergies, foster co-productions and the international circulation of films.
