Este artículo está disponible en inglés.
With a slimmed down selection of just 16 projects chosen from 400 submissions, CineMart is gearing up for its 35th refocused edition, which is due to run from 28 to 31 January. Taking place during the IFFR PRO Days (27 January to 2 February), International Film Festival Rotterdam’s trademark co-production market aims to offer this year’s participants a more precise and tailor-made program, focusing on the improved visibility of their projects. An appointed mentor will guide the project teams through strategy and networking, while some of the discussions on their development will be made publicly available to CineMart guests through the new Spotlight event.
Most of the projects selected are European productions or co-productions, with budgets varying from €400,000 to €4 million, with all participants, bar one, making their debut at CineMart this year.
Some of the most anticipated projects are the sophomore features by Hlynur Pálmason, whose debut Winter Brothers [+lee también:
