3 December 2016 7:32 AM, PST | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Programmers at the eighth Buenos Aires market handed out their annual awards on Friday when several titles rose to the top and the judges also unveiled selections from a vibrant inaugural animation section.

Mexican director Natalia Beristain’s The Goodbyes (Los Adiosos) from Woo Films, Zamora Films and Chamaca Films earned the European Vision Prize in the Primer Corte section for projects in post-production.

The Mexico-uk-Poland drama also won the HD Argentina Prize in the Latin American Vision section and tells of the life of renowned Mexican author Rosario Castellanos and her love for Ricardo Guerra.

Also in Primer Corte, the Film Francais Prize went to another multiple winner, Marcelo Caetano’s Brazilian entry Body Electric (Corpo Electrico), which also scooped the Habanero Award and the Sofia Films Award in the Latin American Vision category.

The film from Desbun Filmes and África Filmes centres on a man from the northeast of Brazil who arrives in Sao Paulo »

‘Belzebuth,’ ‘Body Electric,’ ‘Len’ and ‘Chacay’ Top Ventana Sur

2 December 2016 7:31 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Buenos Aires — Mexico’s “Belzebuth,” Brazil’s “Body Electric,” Colombia’s “Len and the Whales’ Song” and Ecuador’s “Chakay, the Master of the Two Worlds” won top or multiple industry awards at Ventana Sur on Friday night.

Not only the prize winners had something to celebrate. The awards, mostly in industry services, went to three Ventana Sur sections, two of which – the genre-focused Blood Window and Animation! – are growth industries in Latin America passionately favoured by many young talents in the region’s newest generation of filmmakers.

Also, Animation!, an inaugural development and pitching training forum, looks to have been a roaring success. Part of this must be put down to the quality of top animation coming out of Latin America: It is no coincidence that a Chilean work, “Bear Story,” won the Oscar for animated short this year.

Animation! was launched in collaboration with France’ Annecy Festival, with winners given flight to and accommodation at »

Animation Showcase Ventana Sur Announces 13 Projects in New Expanded Section

“Mandinga,” “The Metamorph” and “Aimbo” figure among 13 projects in a new section bowing this year at Buenos Aires’ Ventana Sur market: “Animation!”

Showcasing seven features and six TV series, all of which will be pitched at Buenos Aires, Animation! marks a significant and symbolic departure for Ventana Sur as it broadens its gamut to take in TV and target potential growth sectors, in artists and commercial terms, in Latin America’s content business.

Ventana Sur was launched by Argentina’s Instituto Nacional de Cine y Artes Audiovisuales (Incaa) and the Cannes Film Market and Festival in 2009 as a Latin American film market. Animation! launches in partnership with Annecy’s Intl. Animation Film Market (Mifa), the biggest film-tv animation mart in the world, giving Ventana Sur a second alliance with a top-of-its-global-class partner based out of France.

“Ventana Sur may be an ideal tool for helping animation production growth in Latin America, »
