December 4, 2022

The selected international projects will attend a co-production forum in Galicia (Spain) where they will compete for an award of €10,000 and several prizes in services.

VENTURA, the new co-production platform for filmmakers and producers from all over the world promoted by the Enfoques Cultural Association, responsible for the organisation of the international film festival Play-Doc, continues with the call for international projects open until January 20th 2023.

Projects from any country are welcome, regardless of their stage of development – production or post-production – regardless of length, format or genre. Further information and details can be found at

The five international projects selected in this call will join the Spanish projects participating in VENTURA on 8th and 9th March 2023 in Galicia (Spain). During these days, VENTURA will organise a co-production forum in which they will all participate in a series of one-to-one meetings with representatives of production companies, distributors, funds, markets and international festivals. In addition, all those selected will be eligible for the VENTURA prize, awarded by an international jury with a value of €10,000, and a series of prizes in services provided by Cinemar Films, Cormorán VFX, Laboratorio Numax and the Doc’s Kingdom seminar, among others.
