NEW DELHI: Fourteen projects from a total of 181 projects submitted from 22 countries are taking part in the third Europe-Latin America Co-Production Forum as part of the 67th San Sebastian International Film Festival.

The Forum will be held from 22 to 24 September. The selected films are largely from Latin American countries  including Argentina, Belgium, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Cuba, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, El Salvador, France, Guatemala, Mexico, Panama, Peru, Puerto Rico, Spain, Sweden, United Kingdom, Uruguay and Venezuela.

During the Forum, those responsible for the projects will work to a busy meeting agenda with industry professionals from across the world. The aim by attending the Forum is to make contact with potential co-producers, financial partners and sales agents in order to complete their funding and ensure their international production and distribution. 

In addition, and as part of the festival's collaboration with the Ibermedia Programme, a project selected in the workshop to develop film projects from Central America and the Caribbean will also participate in the Co-Production Forum.

The Europe-Latin America Co-Production Forum is fostered by the Basque Government Department of Economic Development and Competitiveness and the Ministry of Industry, Energy and Tourism.

As in previous editions, the final selection includes projects by directors and producers of recognised prestige alongside others by new directors and recently created production companies. Nine of the 17 projects presented in 2012 have been completed, while three of the 16 presented in 2013 have been filmed, and shooting is expected to start on another six in the coming months.



  

For the second year running, the EGEDA Award for Best Project at the Europe-Latin America Co-production Forum 2014 will be presented. The Award comes with a cash prize of €10,000 and is sponsored by EGEDA, the Audiovisual Producer's Rights Management Association.

As a new feature this year, the Festival will also organise a Focus on Canada with Telefilm Canada. A delegation of 12 Canadian producers will come to San Sebastian to experience the Festival in person, make professional contacts and participate in the Co-production Forum and the other Industry Club activities.

A silver lining among damp squibs

Kahaani 2, a sequel to Kahaani (2012), turned out to be only an attempt to cash in on the earlier film.

Kahaani 2: Durga Rani Singh......Predictable story

Sequel is a misnomer for films using a similar or the same title as an older film including, surprisingly, not always successful ones. The use of an old title and, if possible, the protagonist from the earlier film seem to suffice. In Kahaani 2: Durga Rani Singh, the common factor as in Kahaani (...
