The objectives of Malaga Work in Progress are to contribute to:

Malaga Work in Progress consists of two different actions, conceived to respond to the needs of the participating films and their creators:
. 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 presented 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, conceived 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.
The audiovisual projects must be presented by Ibero-American production companies (Latin America and Portugal), registered as such. In case an audiovisual project is an international coproduction, a contract or memo deal must be submitted to substantiate each country’s participation percentage.
The audiovisual projects must be submitted by Ibero-American production companies (Latin American and Portugal), registered as such with the Institute of Cinematography or bodies with similar characteristics in their country of origin, whether trade entities or other entities recognized as such.
