The call for applications for EAVE PUENTES 2021 is now open until  March 8!

EAVE PUENTES is the most relevant and successful training programme for developing European-Latin American co-production as the track record of the most recent successful productions shows:

MATERNAL by Maura Delpero & produced by Alessandro Amato (Disparte, Italy) has received among other awards a Special Mention of the Concorso Internazionale Jury, Europa Cinemas Label for Best European Film and Ecumenic Jury Award and Second Prize of the Youth Jury at Locarno FF 2019, Special Mention for Best Feature Film (Section Competencia Argentina), FIPRESCI Prize for the Best Argentine Film at International Film Festival Mar del Plata 2019, Grand Prix Fiction et Droits Humains at FIFH 2020.

OUR MOTHERS (NUESTRAS MADRES), by César Diaz & produced by Géraldine Sprimont premiered in Semaine de la Critique Cannes 2019 and won among many others the prix SACD de la Semaine de la Critique, Caméra d'Or, Grand Golden Railprix in Cannes, Spanish Cooperation Award at San Sebastian 2019, and was nominated to represent Belgium in the 2020 Oscar race.

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 selected participants attend 2 workshops. 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. Workshop 2 will be held in Uruguay (Nov/Dec TBC, 2021) in partnership with Mutante Cine, with the support of ICAU (Instituto de Cine y Audiovisual del Uruguay), Egeda, Montevideo Socio Audiovisual and IBERMEDIA.

Thanks to a special partnership, all participants are able to attend VENTANA SUR (December, 2021) in Buenos Aires after workshop 2.
