Ibermedia hands funds to 40 pics

Projects include films by Trapero, Burman

BARCELONA — Pablo Trapero’s “Carancho” and Pablo Stoll’s “Tres” are among 40 co-productions that will receive coin from film fund Ibermedia, targeting pics from Latin America, Spain and Portugal.

Carancho” will be produced by Argentina’s Matanza Cine and Chile’s L90 Cine Digital. The noirish drama depicts shadowy big business interests behind Argentine traffic accidents.

Uruguay’s Control Z and Argentina’s Rizoma co-produce “Tres,” which centers on a family with separated parents.

High-profile recipients include Daniel Burman’s “Dos hermanos” and Pablo Larrain’s “Post Mortem.”

Hermanos” will be Burman’s first adapted screenplay, based on the novel “Villa Laura.” Pic chronicles the attempt of an aging bachelor to find himself after his mother’s death. Argentina’s BD Cine and Uruguay’s Cordon Films co-produce.

Pablo Larrain’s “Post Mortem,” co-produced by Chile’s Fabula and Brazil’s Prodigital, follows a mortuary clerk trying to track down the women he loves after Augusto Pinochet’s 1973 coup.

Running from $30,000 to $200,000 per pic, Ibermedia aid has proved priceless on many often micro-budgeted Latin America pics.

Ibermedia also grants financing for a film’s development, distribution, exhibition and promotion and for training.
