The initiative will bring five Panamanian projects and seven titles from other LatAm countries to compete for a $25,000 prize.
MIAMI – The MEETS co-prod market sponsored by the Panama Film Commission announced Thursday at the Miami Film Festival its line-up of Latin American projects.
The selection list includes five Panamanian projects — a big production boost in the country after the passing of a film law several years ago – and seven LatAm titles, one of which will be picked up from the projects submitted at the 10th Co-Prod Meetings of the Guadalajara Film Festival. The 12 projects will meet with almost 40 international distributors and producers and compete for a $25,000 prize.
