On 13 October, Spain’s Film and Audiovisual Arts Institute (Ministry of Culture and Sports – ICAA) published a provisional draft resolution concerning selective production support for feature-film projects this year. The total sum set to be divvied up amounts to €11,900,000: a minimum of 35% of this quantity is destined for films helmed exclusively by female directors, a minimum of 15% and a maximum of 25% for documentary projects, and a minimum of 8% for animated flicks. In addition, a maximum of 10% is intended for experimental features and a minimum of 5% for co-productions with foreign outfits in which Spain would have minority involvement. As indicated on the ICAA’s website, appeals against this draft resolution – which will award grants to 39 productions in total – can be made until Tuesday 20 October 2020.
The maximum sum that will be given out will be €800,000 per project, and this stands at €300,000 for co-productions with foreign companies where Spain has a minority involvement. The title that obtained the highest score during the selection process was Mantícora, written and directed by Carlos López del Rey, which is being produced by Aquí y Allí Films, and this was followed by the animated movie Unicorn Wars [+leggi anche:
