Six films have been selected for Films in Progress 30, to take place during the San Sebastián Film Festival from 19 to 21 September, from among a total of 121 submissions from 23 countries.
During the event the Films in Progress Industry Award is given out, meaning the companies Daniel Goldstein, Deluxe Spain, Dolby Iberia, Laserfilm Cine y Video, Nephilim Producciones, No Problem Sonido and Wanda Visión will assume the post-production of a film until obtaining a DCP with English subtitles and its distribution in Spain.
Some of the directors presenting works in Films in Progress have already participated in San Sebastian, such as Adrián Biniez, who brought Gigante [+see also:
