EFFFF (European Fantastic Film Festivals Federation) and Blood Window are proud to announce the creation of an award for the Best Latin American Fantastic Film of the Year.

From now on, the emerging Latin American talent will stand out, connecting Europe and Latin America:

We understand that it is important to establish close ties between the European and Latin American film industries and communities. Latin America is a very exciting place for fantastic cinema today, and Blood Window has played a pivotal role in this. For the EFFFF, this collaboration is a pleasure and an honour”, said EFFFF chairman, Chris Oosterom.

We celebrate with enthusiasm the creation of this award. We believe that this initiative, developed in collaboration between the EFFFF and Blood Window, will help strengthen the bonds between the Latin American genre films community and the European Fantastic Film Festivals family. I have no doubts that the continuity of this alliance will foster the discovery of new emerging talents in the fantastic film genre”, said Javier Fernandez, Blood Window director.

The selected film must have been part of at least two festivals in the EFFFF. The prize will be awarded to the winner in November, during the next edition of Blood Window in Buenos Aires.

Primer Corte is the section of Ventana Sur for fiction films in post-production. The registration has closed on October 3rd with an interesting variety of films from Mexico, Bolivia, Argentina, Colombia, Uruguay, Chile, Brazil, Paraguay, Ecuador, Panamá, Perú, Costa Rica and Dominican Republic.
