Films in Progress 28. Register from April 30 to June 30
Created in 2002 thanks to collaboration between the San Sebastian Festival and the Cinélatino, Rencontres de Toulouse, the Films in Progress section was born with the intention to back Latin American film production with aid to the completion of films at the post-production stage. A series of titles from Latin American countries selected by both festivals are presented to a group exclusively made up of industry professionals.
Ever since its first edition, Films in Progress has permitted the completion of outstanding Latin American films which have subsequently been presented and often won awards at major international festivals. Some of today’s most highly reputed Latin American filmmakers have participated in the section: Ana Katz, Celina Murga, Tristán Bauer, Federico Veiroj, Julio Hernández Cordón, Rigoberto Perezcano, Jorge Durán, Ciro Guerra and Sebastián Silva, among many others.
This professional initiative celebrates two calls each year: Toulouse in March and San Sebastian in September. The films, rigorously selected by the selection committees of both festivals, are presented to an international group of professionals capable of contributing to their completion.
The San Sebastian call carries the Films in Progress Industry Award: the companies Daniel Goldstein, Deluxe Spain, Dolby Iberia, Laserfilm Cine and Video, Nephilim producciones, No Problem Sonido and Wanda Vision assume the post-production of a film until obtaining a DCP (Digital Cinema Package) subtitled in English and its distribution in Spain.
As a new feature, 2015 sees creation of the Ibermedia TV Films in Progress Award, going to the winning film of the Films in Progress Industry Award. Granted by the Conference of Ibero-American Cinematographic Authorities (CACI) by means of the Ibermedia Programme, the award consists of including the film in the Grant Programme for Television Broadcast: authorisation of non-exclusive broadcasting on Ibermedia TV and Ibermedia Digital for the value of US$25,000 (full-length feature film) or US$15,000 (documentary).
Films in Progress enjoys the support of the following companies and institutions: Cine Sin Fronteras (CSF), Daniel Goldstein, Deluxe Spain, Dolby Iberia, Laserfilm Cine y Video, MEDIA Mundus, Nephilim producciones, No Problem Sonido, Programa Ibermedia, Wanda Vision, and the collaboration of Association Rencontres Cinémas d'Amérique Latine de Toulouse (ARCALT), Conferencia de Autoridades Cinematográficas Iberoamericanas (CACI), Caisse Centrale d’Activités Sociales (CCAS), Centre National du Cinéma et de l’Image Animée (CNC), Cetim, CINÉ +, Cinéfondation, Commune Image, Confédération Internationale des Cinémas d’Art et Essai (CICAE), Conseil Général de la Haute Garonne, Conseil Régional Midi-Pyrénées, CROUS de Toulouse, Eaux Vives, École Supérieure d’Audiovisuel (ESAV), EP2C - Postproduction Training Programme, Europa Distribution, Fila 13, Firefly, La Trame, Mactari, Mairie de Toulouse, Ministère de la Culture et de la Communication, Producers Network, Signis and Titra TVS.
