Hubert Bals forms Latin links

Dutch co-producers claim $65,000 each

BRUSSELS — Four Latin American films have gained Dutch co-producers thanks to incentives from the Hubert Bals Fund Plus.

Scheme gives E50,000 ($65,000) to Dutch producers who board developing world projects supported by the Rotterdam Film Festival’s Hubert Bals Fund.

Coin comes from the Netherlands Film Fund.

IDTV Motel Films will co-produce “Tanta agua” (So Much Water), the debut feature of Uruguayan helmers Ana Guevara and Leticia Jorge. Control Z Films of Uruguay and Bonita Films of Mexico produce.

NFI Productions joins Gonzalo Tobal’s “Villegas,” produced by Argentina’s Rei Cine and Tresmilmundos Cine, plus Gaul’s Cine-Sud Promotion.

Circe Films boards “De Jueves a Domingo” (Thursday Through Sunday) by Chilean Dominga Sotomayor, produced by Cinestacion and Forastero.

And Volya Films co-produces “Solo,” the debut of Uruguayan Guillermo Rocamora, partnering with Uruguay Seacuatico, Promenades Films in France and Sudestada Cine in Argentina.

The Latin American focus is not intentional, however. “The project will aim at a more geographically diverse set of applications in the future,” said Bals fund topper Iwana Chronis.

Efforts will be made to raise Dutch producers’ awareness of projects from other parts of the world, and to encourage links with potential partners.
