Twenty Spanish projects in development to participate in the first edition of Spanish Screenings on Tour at Ventana Sur
Works in Progress, Market Premieres, recent films and remakes will also be presented to the international industry

The initiative, to be completed with networking activities, will showcase Spanish productions in all of the market sections
Tuesday, October 25th, 2022

Twenty Spanish projects in development have been selected for the first edition of Spanish Screenings on Tour, to run at Ventana Sur from 28 November to 2 December. Potential international partners (producers, sales agents, festivals) will also have the opportunity to discover five works in progress and eighteen recent movies, three market premieres and twelve productions looking to secure remake agreements.

The initiative will see a roll-out of productions in all sections of the Buenos Aires market and an unprecedented display of Spanish talent, who will also have the chance to expand their network of contacts in a series of activities to be announced shortly with the aim of generating new opportunities for the audiovisual industry. Ventana Sur, the biggest Latin American audiovisual market co-organised by the INCAA and the Marché du Film – Festival de Cannes, will run from 28 November to 2 December 2022.

The projects will have a specific space for their official presentation in the different sections of Ventana Sur. Five will participate in the Animation! section, five in Blood Window, five in Punto Género, and five in Solo SerieS under the headings of Anímate, Spanish Screamings, Spanish Screenings Perspectives and Spanish Screenings Series. Thanks to the strategic alliance with four Spanish festivals, the different sections will include screenings of the projects to have carried off the awards Sitges Fanpitch – Blood Window - Spanish Screenings;  Abycine Lanza Award – Spanish Screenings Perspectives; Weird Market Award – Spanish Screenings Anímate; and the Conecta Fiction & Entertainment Award - Spanish Screenings Series.

Seventeen of the selected projects will be the first or second works by their directors, showcasing the vitality of new Spanish talent, together with projects from moviemakers with extensive backgrounds, such as Roger Gual, Elena Trapé and Mar Coll. This very widely varying selection includes a significant number of women, with projects by 13 female directors.

The five Works in Progress, which will be available for viewing in the Video Library of Ventana Sur, come with a wide variety of subjects ranging from road movies to psychological thrillers. The remake selection also encompasses numerous themes, while a large part of the titles have enjoyed a considerable international career. Furthermore, 29 films are also registered with the Video Library and will be available to people accredited at the market.

Finally, twenty-one recent films aiming to increase their international circulation will be screened; amongst them the Market Premieres of the latest films by Álex de la Iglesia (El cuarto pasajero), Álex Murrull y Dani de la Torre (42 segundos) and Carlos Saura (Las paredes hablan), still unreleased in film markets and presented by their sales companies.
