El Principio del Film

A Latin American Feature Film Scripts Market

El Principio del Film (Where The Film Begins) is an initiative created in 2020 to give a diverse selection of scripts the possibility to transcend borders and reach the international market.

This is also an opportunity for producers and professionals from the rest of the world looking to connect with Latin American creativity without intermediaries.

El Principio del Film was created to promote the talent of professional authors from the region and their scripts, an inevitable first step for every cinematographic production.

Organized jointly by Ventana Sur, Argentores and SADA.
