Ibermedia funds Burman pic

Alonso, Vasconcelos receive cash

BARCELONA — Ibermedia has handed $200,000 each to Daniel Burman’s “El Nido vacio” (The Empty Nest), Lisandro Alonso’s “Liverpool” and Antonio-Pedro Vasconcelos’ “Call Girl.”

Argentine pic “Nest” continues Burman’s ironic dissection of family dynamics. “Liverpool,” also from Argentina, describes the return home of a merchant sailor. Portuguese pic “Call Girl” is a noirish cop suspenser.

Other titles pulling down coin include “Los Viajes del viento,” “La Teta asustada” (The Scared Breast) and “Retornos.”

Ibermedia, which funds the development and production of Spanish, Portuguese and Latin American pics, reflects filmmaking trends in those territories, said Elena Vilardell, Ibermedia’s technical secretary.

“We’ve seen a substantial increase in documentary projects and also a generational change,” Vilardell said.

“The most important change is that political and social issues remain important, but they are presented from an immediate, everyday perspective, rather than dealing with past history,” she said.

The second round of awards will be announced in November.
