18 progetti alla settima edizione di Ventana CineMad
- Il VII Forum internazionale di sviluppo e coproduzione di Madrid si svolge il 24 e 25 novembre in un formato ibrido (in presenza e online)
Questo articolo è disponibile in inglese.
Ventana CineMad is on a mission: to help open up Madrid’s vibrant audiovisual scene to the wider world and promote local and regional industries, by offering a boost to filming and production. In this spirit, the event will feature coaching sessions and meet-ups with potential coproducers, sales agents, distributors, TV networks, VOD platforms and more. This year also heralds the welcome return of international investors, absent in 2020, while continuing with the online format: confirmed attendees include production companies from Belgium, France, the UK and Germany.
The first day is when the teams behind 18 selected audiovisual projects will make their pitches, while the second is given over to two round tables: one on the launch of the Spain Audiovisual Hub and the other on the country’s new General Audiovisual Communication Law. This year’s event will be streamed on a dedicated YouTube channel coordinated by AMA (Madrid Audiovisual Association), in partnership with Madrid City and Regional Councils as part of the portfolio for Economy, Innovation and Employment.
Of the 86 projects submitted, 18 were singled out for their international potential, quality, artistic value, financial viability and links with the city and region of Madrid. The final cut includes seven full-length fiction films: Alumbramiento, a drama directed by Pau Teixidor; Chinas, by Arantxa Echevarría; Día de caza, by Pedro Aguilera; Elefante, a social-issues drama tinged with magical realism and the feature début of Pablo de la Chica; Hermanas, a drama by Ione Hernández; Un hijo, a thriller directed and produced by Nacho La Casa; and Un hombre en un puente, by David Martín de los Santos, currently poised for the Spanish release of his first film, That Was Life [+leggi anche:

Two TV series, both fictional, also made it through — Ay’Loviu Habana, by Félix Viscarret, and La residencia, written by Santiago San Martín Beguiristáin — plus six full-length documentaries:Charlie Chaplin, a Man of the World, directed by the comic legend’s granddaughter Carmen Chaplin from a script cowritten by Chaplin herself, Isaki Lacuesta and Amaya Remírez; Emilia, a biopic of the renowned author Pardo Bazán, directed by Miguel Ángel Calvo Buttini; La historia de Tequila, by Álvaro Longoria; La revolución de las musas, by María Lorente, Yaiza de Lamo and Juno Álvarez; Las tres vidas de Carlos Slepoy, by Cristina Andreu; and Mi hermano Ali, by Paula Palacios. They are joined by a four-part documentary series, Jesuitas: la historia de una masacre presented by its producer, Rosaura Romero. Rounding off the selection are two feature-length animated films: Chica y Lobo, written and directed by Roc Espinet, and Muna ojos de luna, by Lorena Ares and Carlos F. de Vigo.
Each of these projects is in the running for a share of the €52,000 million prize fund, with €13,000 to be won in each category. A few titles screening this year may be familiar from previous editions, including: Piggy [+leggi anche:
