The purpose of ENCUENTROS is to facilitate completion of feature films produced partially or entirely by Ibero-American based production companies, or from US Hispanic filmmakers, that are currently in post-production and will not be completed by March 2016. The 13th edition of the event aims to propel these projects towards their eventual debuts on the international stage. It will take place March 9-12, 2016 during the 33rd edition of Miami International Film Festival (March 4-13, 2016).
The Festival will invite selected producers to Miami and they will be awarding a cash prize of USD$ 10,000, courtesy of the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation to the winning project as selected by a jury of industry professionals. ENCUENTROS takes place within the Festival’s VeoMiami industry section, and offers superb access to networking activities among professionals of the cinema industry.
