The festival selects films from Germany, Argentina, England, France, Panama, Costa Rica, Spain and Uruguay.

MADRID - Ucoming films from Daniel Hendler, Ana Katz and Carlos Moreno are among the 16 projects selected to participate in the Europe-Latin America Co-Production Forum taking place at the 60th San Sebastian International Film Festival, organizers announced Wednesday.

Actor-director Hendler will follow on 2011's Los Marziano - -which ran in competition at San Sebastian -- with El Palomar (Uruguay), produced by Cordon Films, while Argentina's Katz will follow her 2007 Cannes entry A Stray Girlfriend with Mi Amiga del Parque (My Friend from the Park). Colombia-born Moreno's Que Viva la Musica will be produced by Dynamo, which also oversaw his 2008 Latin Horizons sidebar entry Dog Eat Dog.

Eighteen countries will be represented in the 16 projects that made the cut from the 104 that vied for a slot in the forum. The event runs Sept. 27-28 during the festival.

Other projects participating include: Anahi Berneri's Aire Libre (Argentina); Luis Angel Ramirez's Claria; Nicolas Pereda's Cuando los Caballos Aprendieron a Llorar; Denisse Arancibia's Las Malcogidas (Bolivia); Gabriel Galvache La Puta Realidad (Ecuador) and Edgardo Gonzalez's Tuya (Argentina).

A spot in the San Sebastian forum enables the projects to continue their international journey in the Ventana Sur market and the next edition of the Producers Network at Cannes -- thanks to collaboration with the Cannes' Marche du Film and the Argentine National Institute of Film and Audiovisual Arts INCAA.
