Sogecine ramps up fat production slate

World Brief

CANNES — Spanish producer powerhouse Sogecine plans to co-produce four to seven Spanish films a year, doubling its production slate and consolidating its status as the biggest film production house in Spain along with Lolafilms.

Sogecine’s first projects in its co-financing drive will be Anton Reixa’s “El lapiz del carpintero,” with Morena Films, and new director Miguel Alvarez’s “Mi casa es tu casa,” a project from Tesela, said Sogecine general manager Fernando Bovaira, who oversees film production and distribution at Sogecable.

The blueprint, which will run parallel to Sogecine’s inhouse productions, may be a first step in the creation of targeted production alliances between Sogecine and other Spanish producers that share its interest in making upscale commercial pics with domestic and international potential.
