In early December, Spain’s Ministry of Culture and Sport published a resolution setting out this year’s round of general production grants, awarded to films that are currently in development. The Institute of Cinematography and Audiovisual Arts (ICAA) has earmarked a total of €40,000,000 in 2020: €5 million more than in 2019. What’s more, 35.5% of the funding will go to projects directed by women, comfortably exceeding the new target introduced this year (20%). Five animated films will share 17.1% of the grant money available, again overshooting the ICAA’s target of 8%.
Note also that 18 of the selected projects will be co-produced with international partners: 12 European, five Latin American and one Chinese. Twelve of the projects are to be directed by women, including one animated film, nine are based on a script by female writers, 22 have appointed women to the senior production team and 35 have at least 40% women on their crew. For all selected projects, women are represented in at least one of these categories, while eight are being written and directed by an all-female team.
Among the titles awarded a grant of €1,200,000 — which, unless stated otherwise, will be released to the project’s AIE (Economic Interest Group) — are Robot Dreams, an animated fantasy film directed by Pablo Berger and produced by Arcadia Motion Pictures, S.L.; Dragonkeeper, by Salvador Simó; 21 prisioneras (Mr. Miyagi Films, S.L.), by Elena Ruíz; Maixabel, by Icíar Bollaín; Irati, by Paul Urkijo; Objetos, a thriller from Jorge Dorado; Lobo feroz, by Gustavo Hernández; La casa entre los cactus, by Carlota González-Adrio; De Caperucita a loba en solo seis tíos, by Marta González de la Vega; El refugio, by Macarena Astorga; Idiotizadas, the directorial debut from Eva Hache; and A todo tren, by Santiago Segura.
