Films in Progress 35 will take place in Toulouse on March 28th and 29th 2019 as part of Cinélatino, Rencontres de Toulouse festival (22-31 March 2019).
Launched 18 years ago, Cinéma en Construction Toulouse/San Sebastián has established itself through its pertinence and efficiency in spotting new films of international scope as well as promoting emerging talents to producers, distributors, festival programmers, sales agents and exhibitors, who never miss our yearly date.
168 films, including a lot of surprises of quality, have taken part of this 35th edition. Six of them have been rigorously selected by both festivals’ committees. They represent Argentina, Brasil, Chile, Costa Rica and Mexico.
Three first films and three second films make light on talents which prove that cinema still remains an art in the age of video invasion.
Dark stories, personal ones where formal exploration serves strong human and social content; original stories which tell every one’s truth whilst avoiding cliches, stereotypes and formatting; stories articulated to History.
Many films from young directors deal with family, its structure that falls apart; couples and the love which unite them, or the lack of love which separate them; children and teenagers who are the first actors and subjects of our changing societies.
