Fourteen projects hailing from seven countries have been selected for the tenth Europe-Latin America Co-Production Forum. The event, which will form part of the 69th edition of the San Sebastián Film Festival, will take place from 20-22 September, in a hybrid format, with the chance to organise online meetings with industry professionals unable to travel to the Basque city in person.
The market has received a total of 200 projects this year. As is the case every year, the selected titles will be duking it out for the Award for Best Project at the Europe-Latin America Co-Production Forum, the DALE! Award (Development Latin America-Europe) and the ArteKino International Award.
