One of the news of this online edition is that the Brazilian feature film projects participate in three categories: Development, Production and Completed. The new categorization was necessary in view of the current global circumstance, uniting genres, formats and styles divided into different stages. The Project Completed category, in particular, was created thinking precisely about the difficulties of films in achieving exhibition spaces since festivals and movie theaters closed around the world, still in March.
PROJECT UNDER DEVELOPMENT CATEGORY – 10 Brazilian Projects
This category has a selection of ten feature film projects: six fiction projects and four documentaries. The projects are in a scriptwriting and/or pre-production phase. The proposal is to present these projects to a specialized audience of producers and professionals of the international audiovisual market interested in knowing the new ideas of Brazilian cinema, sharing experiences and signing co-production partnerships. This action encourages and reveals talents and their inclusion in the international market.
The Official Jury chooses a winning project of this category. Besides receiving the event’s official Horizonte Trophy, the winning project will receive cinematographic materials and services offered by partner companies.
