The Latin American Training Center – LATC, in partnership with the Casablanca Group, is pleased to announce its new publication, “Mecanismos Atuais de Financiamento de Conteúdos Audiovisuais na América Latina”(“Current Financing Mechanisms for Audiovisual Content in Latin America”) during the International Seminar on Audiovisual Funding Policies promoted by ANCINE on 28 and 29 at the Rio de Janeiro National History Museum.

This second publication by LATC is designed specifically to aid professional producers throughout Latin America in seeking public and private-sector financing for their projects, but will also be a valuable source on film industry finance for attorneys, investors, students and other professionals. It is available for free download on the LATC site:

Prepared by experts from thirteen countries in Latin America, the book also features a prologue by Manoel Rangel, President of Ancine, the Brazilian Federal Government Film Industry Regulatory Agency and Executive Secretary of CACI – the Consortium of Iberoamerican Government Film Industry Authorities. In order to preserve their accuracy, the articles are provided only in the original language of the author.

“This second LATC publication offers a new resource for audiovisual content producers in Latin America who seek funding from public and private funds for projects in both traditional and new media platforms. Thus, LATC continues its goal of expanding the national film industries, promoting cultural diversity and advancing the collaborative nature of film production in the globalized – and digititalized – audiovisual market,” said Steve Solot, President of the LATC and Coordinator of the collection of articles. “It is fitting the book be launched during the CACI Seminar, which brings together the highest-ranking government film industry officials from Latin America, Spain and Portugal, to discuss current policies aimed at developing and financing the cinema and audiovisual industries in their countries.”

The previous publication in the LATC series for filmmakers, students, producers and other professionals devoted to creating and production of audiovisual content, “Tax Incentives for the Production and Co-Production of Audiovisual Works in Latin America, Canada and the United States” (2009), is available in hardcopy upon request through the LATC website.
