Primer Corte

Promoting Latin American Fiction Films in Post-Production Stage

Throughout the course of twelve years at Ventana Sur, PRIMER CORTE featured about thirty Latin American films that gained access to competitions at international festivals and had the chance to catch the attention of international sales agents and distributors.

PRIMER CORTE is a vector for Latin American fiction cinema.

Copia Final is a selection of six Latin American fiction feature films which have just been finished, are still unreleased, or have not crossed the borders of their production countries yet; films looking for sales agents, distributors and international festival programmers.

The films are directly invited by the curators of Primer Corte.
