The San Sebastián International Film Festival has announced the fourteen projects programmed for presentation at the eleventh edition of the Europe-Latin America Co-Production Forum. Coming from eight countries, these have been selected from among the 194 works submitted. This year’s edition will run on 19, 20 and 21 September, again in the traditional physical format, at the San Telmo Museum.
The projects will vie for the Best Project Award (€10,000 for the majority producer of the winning project), the DALE! – Desarrollo América Latina-Europa Award (granted by the European Film Agency Directors (EFAD) and by the Conference of Ibero-American Audiovisual and Cinematographic Authorities (CAACI), coming with €20,000 for the majority producer of the winning work) and the ArteKino International Award (given by ARTE, consisting of €6,000 euros for the majority producer of the winning project).
This year’s selection includes the new works by Spanish filmmaker Helena Taberna (who has already shown her previous works Yoyes and The Good News in the festival’s Zinemira and Made in Spain sections), as well as Argentinian directors Anahí Berneri and Emiliano Torres, who have already participated in the festival’s Golden Shell competition with Aire libre and Alanis, and with El invierno, respectively. Other selected filmmakers are Chile’s Niles Attalah (Rey [+]), Brazil’s Beatriz Seigner (Los Silencios [+]), Argentina’s Clarisa Navas (One in a Thousand [+]), Costa Rica’s Sofía Quirós Úbeda (Land of Ashes [+]) and Colombia’s Juan Sebastián Mesa (Los nadie, The Rust [+]), whose previous works had already been co-produced with European countries, and had made their respective splashes at the most important international film festivals.
