WIP Latam runs on September 21, 22 and 23, on the same dates as WIP Europa and the IX Europe-Latin America Co-Production Forum.

The San Sebastian Festival and Cinélatino, Rencontres de Toulouse created, in 2002, Films in Progress, a pioneer industry activity which has inspired similar formats at numerous international markets and festivals. It was born with the intention to back the production of Latin American cinema and to achieve the completion of films at the post-production stage.  

In the changing context of production and distribution in the audiovisual market, from this year on the San Sebastian Festival and Cinélatino, Rencontres de Tolouse will no longer jointly organise Films in Progress.

At the coming edition, the San Sebastian Festival will promote a new work in progress, WIP Latam, focussed on Latin American productions at the post-production stage and replacing Films in Progress after its 18 years in existence at the San Sebastian Festival. WIP Latam, together with WIP Europa (the new Glocal in Progress) and the Europe-Latin America Co-Production Forum will lend strength to the Festival as a meeting point between both film industries.  

WIP Latam will screen 6 films and will continue to present the WIP Latam Industry Award given by the companies Ad Hoc Studios, Deluxe, Dolby, Laserfilm Cine y Vídeo, Nephilim Producciones, No Problem Sonido and Sherlock Films, consisting of the post-production of one of the films screened until obtaining a DCP with English subtitles, and its distribution in Spain. 

There will also be a new accolade, the EGEDA Platino Industria Award for the best WIP Latam, carrying EUR 30,000 gross, will be handed to the majority producer of the winning film, sponsored by EGEDA, the Audiovisual Producers' Rights Management Association.

Since the beginning, Films in Progress-San Sebastian has enjoyed the support of the Ibermedia Programme and of the companies participating in the Industry Award.
