- Enhancing their dissemination and promotion.
- Supporting the completion of films in the post production phase.

. Malaga WIP Spain is designed to promote the completion of fiction feature films and documentaries in the final cut phase, ready for the post production process and that are seeking to ensure their international distribution. Six Spanish films will participate in the event.

The audiovisual projects must be submitted by Spanish production companies. In case an audiovisual project is an international coproduction, a contract or memo deal must be submitted to substantiate each country?s participation percentage.

. Malaga WIP Ibero-America is designed to promote the completion of fiction feature films and documentaries in the final cut phase, ready for the post production process and that are seeking to ensure their international distribution. Six Ibero-American films will participate in the event.

Audiovisual projects must be submitted by Ibero-American production companies (Latin America and Portugal), registered as such with the Institute of Cinematography or similar bodies in the project?s its country of origin, whether trade entities or entities acknowledged as such.

The participating films will be selected by a committee of renowned experts.
