Lucky 13 at Huelva

Fest Traveler: Huelva Ibero-American Film Festival

The 12th Huelva Co-Production Forum — Europe’s biggest Ibero-American pitching-networking confab — presents 44 projects from 13 countries, including 11 from Colombia, 10 from Spain and seven from Mexico.

Running Nov. 24-26, the event kicks off with a Colombia country focus, backed by a high-powered delegation.

Key Colombian projects include mystery tale “Lost Wolves” by Carlos Moreno (“All Your Dead Ones”), family odyssey “Tierra en la lengua” by Ruben Mendoza (“The Stoplight Society”) and WWII thriller “Arijuna — White Men” by Jorg Hiller.

“Latin American cinema is booming,” declares Forum organizer Annabelle Aramburu.

“There are pro-active film institutes, attractive tax breaks, strong private investment and innovative digital filmmaking.”

Aramburu also emphasizes Forum synergies with events such as Mexico’s Guadalajara Film Market.

This year’s crop encompasses numerous genre films, including eight thrillers.

More than 100 industry participants are expected, including Spanish, French and German sales agents and Spanish broadcasters Antena 3, Telecinco and Canal Sur.

Buzzed-about titles include three Mexican pics — father-daughter tale “Juan and Vanessa” by Ianis Guerrero, family-crisis drama “Waiting for the Barbarians” by Iria Gomez Concheiro (“The Cinema Hold-Up”) and 19th-century battle pic “May 5” by Rafa Lara — plus Chilean revenge drama, “To Kill a Man” from Alejandro Fernandez Almendras and “When I Was a Skinhead” by Spain’s Koldo Serra.
