In previous years, industry meetings have included briefing sessions by a leading entertainment attorney, a film industry independent market consultant and top talent agency executives, as well as “pitching” training sessions.

From October 28th to November 2nd, 25 Ibero-American film industry professionals will have the opportunity to experience an “immersion” into the commercial, legal, marketing, artistic, academic and new media aspects of the US audiovisual industry through an intensive schedule of meetings, presentations, panels and other industry activities in Los Angeles.

During the Program, participants will have the opportunity to ask specific questions and discuss their projects with US-based producers, agents, studio executives and distributors, generating real possibilities for development, financing, distribution and co-production. The participants will also be provided with an exclusive insider’s tour and access to selected events of the American Film Market, the premiere global marketplace for films.

The tentative detailed schedule of meetings and events will be available 1 month prior to the beginning of the Immersion Program.
