New fund called “World Coproduction” will invest over US$ 9 million in coproductions
The National Cinema Agency (Ancine), an institution linked to the Ministry of Culture (MinC), will invest US$ 9.5 million in the promotion of co-productions between Brazilian producers and other countries. It will be approximately US$ 4.6 million for cinema and US$ 4.78 million for TV.
During Ventana Sur Festival, Christian de Castro and Ancine’s international advisor, Gustavo Rolla, met Brazilian and Argentine producers at the Cinema do Brasil booth for a review of the eight-year co-production edits between the two countries and to propose improvements and simplifications of processes in future notices.
The World Coproduction Announcement, which starts in January, will operate in the continuous stream modality and will serve projects whose Brazilian producers are minority or majority. Distribution contracts will be required for the film and pre-licensing projects for TV.
