Primer Corte

Fostering fiction films in postproduction stage

Primer Corte is a section within VENTANA SUR destined to promote fiction Latin American films in post-production. Six Latin American films approaching that stage of development will be selected.

These films will be pitched exclusively for international festival programmers,
distributors and sales agents, and will participate for awards consisting of varied post-production and distribution services, among other incentives.

The selected films will be featured in theater screenings, and will then be part of the Video Library until Ventana Sur’s closing date and will be included in the Industry in Progress catalog.

The films registered in Primer Corte will be considered by the curators for the Copia Final and Films In Progress sections.

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 will be directly invited by the curators of Primer Corte.

FIP is a selection of high-quality Latin American films in post-production stage which will be featured in a specific catalog within Ventana Sur’s Video Library, in a special section offering exclusive access to international festival programmers, distributors and sales agents.

The FIP selection derives from films registered for Primer Corte, and it is carried out by the team of international curators.
