33 Rencontres Cinémas d'Amérique Latine de Toulouse

March 19 to 28 - 2021 / Edición Híbrida


In 2002, San Sebastián Film Festival and the Rencontres Cinémas d'Amérique Latine de Toulouse went into partnership to organise a “Films in Progress” section dedicated to independent Latin American feature films unable to complete the postproduction stage due to a lack of means.

In 2020, this double event is from now on organised jointly with Lima Film Festival PUCP and presents an annual selection of 12 works-in-progress in two sections: 6 films in March in Toulouse and 6 films in August in Lima.

This initiative is the answer to an urgent request from Latin American producers and directors who are facing difficulties finalising their films due to a lack of funding. There very frequently exists a disparity between a director’s creativity and the funds available to these directors.

Films in Progress propels the meeting and cooperation between producers of the selected works-in-progress and European partners to enable the films to reach screens and audiences. These two sessions contain more than 300 professionals who are among the most influential in Europe and internationally. Therefore, Films in Progress is the unmissable strategic meeting with Latin American films and professionals connected to Latin America.
