Our work is aimed to find the right windows for the selected films, and therefore their audiences. This is our cinema: from Latin America to the world.
Works In Progress presents two days of screenings, of seven fiction films in a provisional cut, that are looking for financing for its completion and subsequent distribution. These screenings are held before a closed audience of international post-production professionals: distributors, sales agents, service companies, aid funds, festival representatives, etc.
Additionally, from Industry and Market, we manage important support for the post-production and the distribution of our selected films, which are announced and updated in each edition. These are awarded to the films that our collaborators find deserving.
Who can apply?
Applying is free of charge.
Fiction feature films will be received with, at least, a first cut. Said cut must be a length between 70 and 140 minutes.
