Fest adds Latin-American section

Category to include pix seeking completion coin

MADRID — The San Sebastian Intl. Film Festival is launching a new section, Horizontes Latinos, underscoring its commitment to Spanish-lingo and Latin-American filmmaking.

Horizontes Latinos will join San Sebastian’s official competition and its new directors/recent pic Zabaltegi selection as one of the principal sections for new movies.

This consolidates San Sebastian’s attraction as a one-stop shop for distributors, producers or critics catching up with the cream of films made or near-to-completion in the Latin world.

Horizontes will include two already established panoramas, Made in Spanish and Films in Progress, an industry showcase for Spanish or Latin American pics seeking completion finance.

It will also frame a new sub-section focusing on recent pics produced in Latin America or made by Latin American filmmakers or portraying Latin communities around the world.

Fest will also publish a book on Latin American national cinemas. The 51st San Sebastian Intl. Film Festival runs Sept. 18-27.
