Ventana Sur


Ventana Sur is the most important market for audiovisual content in Latin America, and it is a must in the schedule of distributors and buyers from the international industry.

Organized by the National Institute of Cinema and Audiovisual Arts (INCAA) and the Marché du Film – Cannes Film Festival, Ventana Sur brings together all the different players from the audiovisual industry to promote international co-production, financing and distribution of Latin American content.

The event welcomes 3000 accredited participants every year, including more than 250 buyers and sellers from all five continents, as well as representatives from the most important networks and international platforms. At the market, they can meet with content producers at business conferences, pitching sessions and one-on-one meetings; they also have access to roundtables, specific actions for producers with projects in development, workshops, talks, and conferences about current topics, with a vision for the future.

Through its different sections, such as Primer Corte, Copia Final, Blood Window, Animation!, Proyecta, Punto Género, SoloSeries, El Principio del Film, Maquinitas y DocSur, and also its activities and services such as conferences, screenings and the Video Library, Ventana Sur promotes Latin American content of all genres (Fiction, Docs, Animation, Fantasy, Latin American Queer) and formats, providing a wide range of business possibilities and promotion, unique in the region.

Ventana Sur 2023 will be held from November 27th and December 1st.
