The Márgenes Madrid Independent Film Festival has announced the projects selected to take part in the 7th edition of MÁRGENES/WORK, its training and project development section: there are ten works –seven audiovisual and three review and research projects– originally from Spain (6 projects), Uruguay, Argentina, Brazil and Colombia. The choice of projects was made from more than 400 applications received from 18 Iberian American countries and Italy. The work sessions will take place from 16 to 21 November, with a team of professionals who will advise the participants on boosting their creative potential, as well as ensuring their access to the market and circulation. The audiovisual projects are candidates for the 1st La Casa Encendida Audiovisual Creation Award, with a 4000€ cash prize and sponsored by the Montemadrid Foundation, which support independent creation and new talent.
MÁRGENES/WORK is also a part of the RAW Residential Courses: an initiative created in 2019, as a result of the collaboration between the Márgenes Festival and Doclisboa, supported by the Ibermedia Programme, and which is also open to the area of research and review. As well as MÁRGENES/WORK, the finalists from RAW have also been taking part in the laboratories Arché, the Doclisboa project development forum, from 21 October to 21 November.
Márgenes Work 2021 will also include the Spanish film maker Guillermo Benet (Los inocentes [+leggi anche:

Torralbo, Alejandro Pérez and Jorge Rojas with Mitología de barrio: a glossary and full map of the working-class suburbs of Madrid, which are going through an unstoppable process of displacement and gentrification.
