press release


The call for EAVE PUENTES, the most relevant and successful training programme for developing European-Latin American co-production, is now open for applications!

Who is it for?

The workshop is targeted at Latin American & European film professionals interested in developing strong bonds between Europe and Latin America. The selected group of applicants is composed by 10 producers focusing on project development, and 4-5 European film professionals (sales agents, financiers, distributors, festival programmers, coproduction market representatives) or European producers focusing on career development (not bringing a specific project).

How does it work?

Every year, the 15 selected participants discuss in a safe space their experiences; obstacles and challenges faced within the industry; and get and insight into the production conditions and markets in both continents with the group and with the top-notch professionals that form the pedagogical team. Additionally, the selected projects serve as real life case studies for the group.

The interviews with a pre-selection of candidates will take place in April 2022 and the selection will be announced end of April.

PUENTES takes place in the course of two weeks of the year and is supported by Creative Europe - MEDIA Programme of the European Union and IBERMEDIA. The first workshop of the 2022 edition will take place from July 11-15 in Italy in partnership with FVG Audiovisual Fund and MiC (Ministero dei Beni Ambientali e Culturali). The second workshop will be held in Uruguay in November/December, in partnership with Mutante Cine. Thanks to a special partnership, the PUENTES participants will attend VENTANA SUR after workshop 2.




The 2022 edition of PUENTES is the third one under the guidance and care of PUENTES Head of Studies and producer Fernanda del Nido, known for her prestigious track record of co-productions involving Europe and Latin America such as Oscar-winner UNA MUJER FANTASTICA, NERUDA, AGUA FRÍA DE MAR and PRINCESITA.

Among the core experts are French producer Didar Domehri (Maneki Films, FR) as group leader, script consultant Jacques Akchoti and Uruguayan producer Agustina Chiarino (Mutante Cine, UY). They will be joined by other key experts from both Europe and Latin America.
