The call for submissions will accept applications from documentary film projects which are currently in the development phase and have been produced between Africa and Latin America. This relationship can be for one of three reasons: the script’s theme tells a story which links the two regions, the film is co-produced by African and Latin American countries or shooting taking place in these locations.
They must be non-fiction projects with a minimum duration of 60 minutes. Projects which are audio-visual journalistic reports or in news bulletin format will not be considered. Participation in AFROLATAM LAB is free.
The Festival will select a maximum of 5 projects for participation in this Co-production Forum, based on the reports prepared by three international experts. The film-makers responsible for the projects may be able to find strategic, industrial and financial partners among the professional guests attending Miradasdoc Market, who can help to co-produce their projects. Film-makers will also be able to present their projects to industry representatives in a pitching session and will be given a personalized appointment schedule for meetings with professionals interested in their projects.
The Africa – Latin America Co-production Forum will take place on 30 January 2018 in the framework of the 12th Miradasdoc International Film Festival. During the four days before the Forum, Claudia Rodríguez from Preciosa Media (Colombia) will lead a development workshop with the aim of presenting each project to the Co-production Forum with the highest possible quality.
The projects submitted to the Africa – Latin America Co-production Forum will be subject to the following regulations:
