On November 30, in Buenos Aires, during the Ventana Sur, the principal film market in the region, and with the presence of Orlando Pulvirenti, author of the Argentinian chapter, the Latin American Training Center-LATC launched its new publication: Current Financing Mechanisms for Audiovisual Content in Latin America – 3rd Edition (Mecanismos actuales de financiación de contenidos audiovisuales en Latinoamérica – 3ª Edición). Sponsored by the Cesnik, Quintino e Salinas Advogados-CQS and Cowan, DeBaets, Abrahams & Sheppard, LLP–CDAS, it’s an updated, expanded and bilingual Spanish-English sourcebook on 15 Latin American countries.
In this new publication, LATC has again invited a select group of legal and technical experts from each country to prepare a chapter on the principal mechanisms of financing audiovisual content, and has added chapters from Panama and Paraguay in response to numerous requests. Other countries represented in the publication are: Argentina, Bolivia, Brasil, Chile, Colombia, Cuba, Ecuador, México, Peru, Puerto Rico, the Dominican Republic, Uruguay and Venezuela.
The new edition also includes a special prologue by Adelfa Martínez Bonilla, Executive Secretary of the Conference of Iberoamerican Audiovisual and Film Authorities – CAACI, and Director of the Film Office, Ministry of Culture of Colombia. CAACI is the international organization created in 1989 through the Iberoamerican Cinematographic Integration Treaty which represents the highest film and audiovisual authorities of 21 countries of Iberoamerica.
Consistent with its previous publications, LATC and the sponsors of the new edition hope that it will serve as a significant source of information for policy makers, legislators, investors, attorneys, producers, distributors and other professionals in the audiovisual industry to promote the common objective to expand the Latin American audiovisual content industry in a global context.
The new book is available free of charge on the LATC website:
