Huelva’s co-production cauldron

Producers, directors pitch projects, find financing

Oscar Campos’ “Los funerales,” Natural Arpajou’s “Natural” and Victor Gaviria’s “La mujer del animal” look like potential standouts at the 11th Huelva Co-Production Forum, an event which — in projects, producers and potential commercial punch — suggests a coming of age of Latin America’s cinema.

All three have powerful backers: Introspective-identity film “Natural,” for example, is produced by director Diego Lerman (“The Invisible Eye”).

Gaviria (“The Rose Seller”) is another Cannes favorite; “Funerales” is moved by “Dog Eat Dog” producer Diego Ramirez.

Thirty-nine projects, 14 from Spain, unveil at the three-day pitching/networking confab. Many boast name directors: Juan Carlos Valdivia is tubthumping “Kandire, la tierra sin mal,” a Guarani Indian’s take on the white man.

Vet Argentine producer Fernando Sokolowicz (“The Man Next Door”) is pitching Mariano Cohn and Gaston Duprat’s “I’ll Get My Cigarettes and Be Right Back, Darling” and Marcos Carnevale’s “Widows.”

Mexico’s Rafael Lara, a Forum favorite son after bringing “The Miraculous,” will now talk up “El Anima.”

Potential Spanish co-producers include Mediopro, Filmax and broadcasters Canal Sur and Antena 3.

With more Latin American producers on the radar, Huelva will be more of a two-way event.

“Recognition for Latin American directors and producers should help financing,” says Forum director Annabelle Aramburu, adding Spanish projects could also see Latin American co-financing.
