The above mentioned projects had been selected for the EAVE PUENTES – Europe / Latin America Co-Production Workshop, where the projects were developed over one year by the attending producers under the guidance of top notch consultants, working on the script development, the financial, co-production, marketing and distribution strategies and where the producers extended their professional network meeting key players of the industry in Europe and Latin America.
EAVE PUENTES is targeted at Latin American & European producers focusing on project development, 10 of which will be selected for the workshop. We are also open to receive the applications of other European professionals interested in working with Latin America (sales agents, financiers, distributors, festival programmers, co-production market representatives) or European producers focusing on career development (not bringing a specific project). 4-5 of them will be selected to be an active part of the group.

The first one will be held online from June 14 – 18 & June 21 – 25, 2021, in partnership with IDM Süd-Tyrol, with the support of MiBACT and Fondo Audiovisivo FVG.
