Ventana Sur

Female directors account for 60% of selections at 2023 Ventana Sur Proyecta, the sidebar of projects looking to secure additional funding and partners in a bid to foster stronger co-production ties between Latin America and Europe.

This year’s line-up organised by Ventana Sur, Marché du Film, and San Sebastian Film Festival comprises 11 projects from Latin America and four from Europe.

The 15th edition of the market in Buenos Aires will take place in person and online and kicks off with a pitching session by the producers on November 29 and in-person one-on-one meetings on November 30. Ventana Sur runs November 27-December 1.

For the first time, projects will vie for two invitation awards: Sørfond Pitching Forum in 2024 offering producers the chance to pitch to potential Norwegian co-producers and gain direct access to apply for support from SØRFOND if the project includes a Norwegian co-producer.

Proyecta producers will also get a chance to participate in the WEMW (When East Meets West) Co-Production Market in Trieste, Italy.
