press release

The second and final session of PUENTES, EAVE’s European-Latin American co-production workshop, starts today, November 20th in Montevideo (Uruguay) and will run until November 26th!

The carefully selected group of Latin American and European participants will reunite again to develop their projects, work on their careers and company structures, think internationally and build strong professional links between Europe and Latin America under the guidance of experienced PUENTES experts.

Experts and programme

The core tutors include Head of Studies Fernanda del Nido (Setembro Cine, AR/ES), Script Consultant Jacques Akchoti (FR), LATAM Consultant, Workshop partner and expert Agustina Chiarino (Bocacha Films, AR) and Didar Domehri (Maneki Films, FR).

The second workshop will feature top Latin American professionals Álvaro Arroba (Directors Fortnight – Cannes, FR), Ester Bernal (Piano, MX), Pablo Carrizosa (Totem Films, FR), Alessandro Gropplero (FVG Audiovisual Fund, IT) and Gema Juárez Allen (GEMA Films, AR). In speed meetings with the guest experts, participants can expand their networks and receive valuable feedback.

The schedule consists of group work and individual meetings, including special working sessions on “Building a Sustainable Business” with EAVE expert Juliane Schulze.

To spice up the programme, we are organising a special screening of the film POWER ALLEY (LEVANTE) by Lillah Halla produced by PUENTES participant Clarissa Guarilha. This year, the film won the FIPRESCI award in Cannes and was honoured at Rio de Janeiro International Film Festival for Best Director and Best Editing.

PUENTES URUGUAY for local professionals

As every year, a special PUENTES URUGUAY workshop for Uruguayan producers will take place alongside the international PUENTES programme from November 21-24. The local participants and the international group will have the opportunity to mingle during a special networking evening.
