“La Ventana del Cine Madrileño was the first place we pitched “CINCO LOBITOS” and the beginning of an incredible journey. Thanks to their guidance, we found the ideal way to explain our project. We won first prize, which granted us a much higher profile, and caught the interest of lots of people who ended up playing a fundamental role.”Aláuda Ruiz de Azúa.
“Participating as a consultant at Ventana CineMad is, more than anything, a privilege. A privilege (within the context of a well-established event that is already a reference point) that makes it possible to work closely with the professionals involved in 16 projects which, given their diversity, come to the table with very impressive projects. If I had to highlight one thing, it would be the heart and soul, the commitment and honestly that I’ve found behind each and every one of the projects (and teams) chosen for this edition of Ventana CineMad.”Álvaro Vega
“The kind of support provided by Ventana CineMad is essential for the development of animation projects. The chance to present your project and measure it alongside the work of professionals from all over the world is crucial for internationally recognized animation projects such as “Chica y Lobo” directed by Roc Spinet”Xosé Manuel Zapata Pérez
“Events like Ventana CineMad are an excellent opportunity to move the development of your project along. As the name implies, it is a literal window providing access to potential backers (TV, streaming, distribution, etc), which is a huge boost to independent producers looking to raise their project’s profile. What’s more, the system at Ventana CineMad is designed to be an incredibly efficient way for all parties to connect with the projects they are most interested in.”Nano Arrieta
“Thanks to Ventana CineMad we were able to finish defining the profile of our project, as well as consolidate alliances with Spain. At the meeting we found our Spanish editor who, with his talent and experience, made a difference in the editing process of my film.”Emilio Santoyo
“Romanian cinema is increasingly present on screens in Spain, but Ventana CineMad gave us the opportunity to go further, to build relationships with professionals from Spain and Mexico who are not the usual co-production partners of Romanian producers. Furthermore, if there is a Romanian Film Showcase, which is in its third edition in Mexico, it is thanks to Ventana CineMad. In short: a very enriching human experience.”Ovidiu Miron
