Mipcom: ‘Las Vegas, Mendoza,’ ‘File 13,’ ‘Everything I Like,’ at Snack & Screen from Argentina

Event's second edition, co-organized by the INCAA and the Argentine Investment & Trade Promotion Agency

Mariano Cócolo’s “Las Vegas, Mendoza,” Gustavo Caro’s “File 13” and Sergio Acosta’s “Everything I Like,” three TV fiction projects which have won development awards from Argentina’s INCAA film institute, figure among the ten TV productions selected for Mipcom’s Snack & Screen from Argentina.

Aimed tat attracting the attention of international buyers to Argentine TV productions, the event will be held Monday Oct. 16, co-organized by the INCAA and the Argentine Investment & Trade Promotion Agency.

This year, the selection includes two animated series and eight TV drama projects, all set up at TV companies based out the Argentine provinces of Buenos Aires, Córdoba, Mendoza, Santiago Estero and Misiones.

Selection criteria includes technical quality, geo-location, plots and potential interest for global audiences.

An eight-episode mini-series, fantasy thriller “Las Vegas, Mendoza” is set in a town in the heart of Mendoza’s mountains that hides the dark secret of a Mapuche child with healing powers, kidnapped for the benefit of its inhabitants. The INCAA grant has allowed Peca Cine’s director-producer Mariano Cócolo to finish the series’ screenplay and film a pilot episode.

Produced by Antonella Rago Greco at TV outfit Los Díaz, Santiago del Estero-set thriller series “File 13” follows an anthropologist that investigates in the modern day a judicial process of two Indian women accused of sorcery in 1761.

With “Queer as Folk” as one of its TV references, dramedy series “Everything I Like,” produced by Misiones’ SA Cine, turns on a narcissistic and womanizing TV producer that moves with a gay friend, who encourages him to open his mind and have an affair with a new guy from the production company where he works.

Also making the cut is “Confite the Dog,” José Joaquín Garín’s eight-part seven-minute 2D animated series, focused on the experiences of Confite, a dog seen in different places, moments and weather in the countryside. The family-oriented project is set up at Buenos Aires’ Artan Animation, which is pre-producing a toon feature about the same character.

Mariano Bergara’s “WawiPox,” a stop motion pre-school TV series production is produced by Can Can Club, the Buenos Aires-based company co-founded by Bergara and partner Becho Lo Bianco.

With a international festival-market career which already includes an Annecy’s Mifa pitching this year, “WawiPox” is based in collaborative efforts, friendship and respect, showing a visual composition that mixes music, games and learning.

Loli Miraglia’s SDO Entertainment produces multi-platform project “Alquimia para Ana,” co-directed by Marcelo Mangone and Eugenia Tobal. “Alquimia” narrates the story of a single, funny singer woman who lives without questioning anything, until she receives the news that her best friend has died, leaving her in charge of his children.

Handled by Smilehood Media, “Alquimia” was presented to the international market at Miami’s Natpe two years ago. SDO is developing a feature version in partnership with Tres Planos Cine, the company run by filmmaker Ariel Winograd (“That’s No Cheating”), and Bastiana Films.

Germina Films, the Córdoba-based production company run by Paola Suárez, is developing thriller fiction series “La última cena” (“The Last Supper”), directed by Pablo Checchi. The project sets in Alessio, a small restaurant far away from the center of the city who serves as support for the mafia to laundry money. When the Zampieri family wants to get rid of the delinquent debtor, The Last Supper takes place, always on monday nights.

With a full title of Snack & Screen from Argentina: Discover New Content from the Country at the End of the World, the event will take place Monday, from 12.00 to 14.30, in the Verrière Californie at Cannes’ Palais de Festivals.
