Films flock to Huelva's co-prod'n forum

Iberoamerican confab and film fest in 9th year

MADRID -- More than 30 film projects from 16 countries will seek financing at the Iberoamerican Co-production Forum to be held Nov. 20-22, parallel to Huelva’s Iberoamerican International Film Festival, organizers said Thursday.

Of the 146 projects presented to participate in the forum, organizers selected 35 -- 10 of which are from Spain, while the rest come from Argentina, Brazil Colombia and Mexico.

The forum, now in its ninth year, has garnered quite a following, with Alex Bowen’s “My Best Enemy” and Rodrigo Cortes’ “The Contestant” just two examples of films that have found financing in previous editions.

Numerous treaties, including the Ibermedia Program, support co-production between Spain and Latin America.
