Extended Deadline: PUENTES 2013

PUENTES: EAVE EUROPE / LATIN AMERICA PRODUCERS WORKSHOP 2013

Extended Deadline: June 5, 2013!

Continuing the great success of the PUENTES workshops for European and Latin American producers, we are delighted to announce the fifth edition of PUENTES, connecting professionals from Europe & Latin America.

PUENTES is targeted at Latin  American & European producers with projects, bringing them together with potential financiers, distributors, sales agents, and reinforcing artistic and industrial cooperation between Europe & Latin America.  

The workshop modules bring together 5  European & 5  Latin American producers with their feature projects in development for 2 workshops in Locarno, Switzerland (August  8-­14, 2013) in partnership with the Locarno International Film Festival and its Industry Days, and in Montevideo, Uruguay (November 29-­December 4, 2013) in cooperation with Mutante Cine. Thanks to our partnership with VENTANA SUR (December 3-­6, 2013 in Buenos Aires, Argentina), free accreditations will be offered to the selected participants who want to attend the market after the second workshop.

PUENTES combines producetraining, project development, and networking. During the two workshops producers will work together with ‘state of the art’ experts from both continents on script development, co-­production between Latin America and Europe, financing in the two regions, legal aspects of co-­production, marketing, pitching and promotion, and meet with decision makers during both sessions.   

The workshop will enablfeature film producers from both continents to work together in two workshops and will offer the 10 selected participants:    

  • top level professional and project development,
  • work on the comprehensive development, production and distribution of European and Latin American projects,  
  • cooperation and co-­production on these and future projects,

  • access to a network of producers, financiers, markets, festivals, distributors and sales agents in both continents.
