Ventana CineMad is an international co-production forum organized by Madrid Audiovisual Association (AMA), the Community of Madrid and the Madrid City Council. Ventana CineMad held annually since 2015 with the clear objective of creating connections amongst various audiovisual sectors in Europe and America, with Madrid serving as a hub. Every year, an international committee selects audiovisual projects from Madrid, along with one from an American country and one from a European country. Projects from Colombia, Sweden, Romania, Mexico, Chile, Germany, Peru, Poland, Argentina, Brussels and Canada have made appearances at the Ventana del Cine.
In addition to the pitches made for each project and meetings amongst producers, there will be panels, workshops and various networking events with Madrid as the backdrop.
All projects that are selected and pitched qualify to receive the monetary prizes.
The projects involved in past editions of Ventana CineMad include Between Dog and Wolf (Spain-Colombia-Cuba), produced with the support of Tribeca Film Institute, selected at Forum de Berlinale 2020; La Gomera (Romania-France-Germany), which competed in the official section of the Cannes Film Festival; The Hidden City (Spain-France-Germany) selected at the IDFA International Documentary Film Festival Amsterdam; and Los Reyes (Chile-Germany), which won the Special Jury Award for the Best Documentary, also at IDFA.
