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.
Since its beginning, PrimerCorte has become a platform to increase participation of the regional cinematography in the most important international festivals and markets. A jury selects six films that compete for the Primer Corte Awards, consisting of diverse post-production services.
Primer Corte also opens possibilities for other high quality films that have registered in this section but have not been selected: FIP(Films in Progress), a video library with an independent catalogue, provides exclusive access for sales agents, distributors and international festival programmers.
