Argentina, Italy plan to work more together

INCAA organizes producers' meeting in March

BERLIN — Argentina’s film institute, INCAA, will host “Argentine Cinema For the World,” a first Italian-Argentine producers meeting, to be held in Buenos Aires March 5-7.

Pow-wow follows a new, more liberal Italy-Argentina co-production treaty that drops the minimum stake required from an Argentina co-producer for a film to qualify as Argentinian — hence tap state subsidies — to 10%.

Treaty also introduces the possibility of purely financial co-productions, explained Bernardo Bergeret, head of INCAA’s international division, which organizes the event.

The meet is primarily aimed at encouraging Italian producers to board Argentine pic projects. A return meet in Italy will see Argentine producers fielding Italian projects.

Italian producers expected to attend the meeting include Surf Film’s Massimo Vigliar, Intl. Dean Film’s Adriano De Micheli, Roberto Di Girolamo from Production Group, Lanberto Mancini, repping the Cinecitta Studios, and Sintra’s Rossana Seregni.

“It’s absurd that two countries that are so close culturally have seen so little co-production activity,” Bergeret said at Berlin.
