ICAA announces projects set to receive funding in 2008

by 

The ICAA (Institute of Cinematography and Audiovisual Arts) – which is dependent on the Spanish Ministry of Culture – has chosen 43 projects from among the 300-plus films entered for the 2008 funding competition. The selected projects include 22 features (including two animated works), 13 documentaries, four experimental films and four pilot episodes for animated series.

On June 17, the Committee of Experts – ICAA’s advisory body on matters relating to film production funding – held a plenary session and discussed all the different projects at length, deciding to give priority to works by new directors.
