Spanish Screenings On Tour 2022 to run at Ventana Sur
Ventana Sur, Latin America’s leading audiovisual market, will run in Buenos Aires from 28 November to 2 December 2022.
Its main sections will have widespread Spanish presence with a selection of projects in development in showcase mode under the label Spanish Screenings On Tour (calls for submissions open from August 4)
Spanish Screenings has chosen Ventana Sur, Latin America’s leading audiovisual market co-organised by the INCAA and the Marché du Film-Festival de Cannes, to present the first edition of On Tour to the international audiovisual industry. This will represent a remarkable increase in Spanish presence at the Buenos Aires’ Latin America audiovisual gathering, both with respect to the number of professionals making up the delegation and to the quantity and quality of the Spanish projects to be presented in its different sections.
Animation!, Blood Window and SoloSerieS will host a specific space for the official presentation of projects in development of new Spanish productions, including feature films, series, fiction, animation and fantastic and horror movies. The same will apply to the Punto Género section, where full-length film projects in development directed by women and non-binary people will be promoted.

New formulas for a constantly changing audiovisual panorama dedicated to stimulating, creating new industrial fabric and placing the emphasis on the promotion of emerging talent.
Spanish Screenings On Tour is one of the four axes of Spanish Screenings XXL together with Spanish Screenings Content (Malaga Festival), Spanish Screenings: Financing & Tech (San Sebastian Festival) and Spanish Screenings 360, a programme of actions running throughout the year which also includes the future creation of a virtual platform for promotion and business.
At the end of the day, the initiative consists of creating an audiovisual market of Spanish production contents in order to foster the exchange and generation of new projects in a context of interaction and business, thus helping to strengthen the value chain of the Spanish audiovisual industry.
‘Spanish Screenings XXL. An international market for Spanish audiovisual production’ is part of the Recovery, Transformation and Resilience Plan (RTRP) to boost Spain’s role as a European audiovisual hub and is promoted by the Ministry of Culture and Sport through the ICAA and the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Digital Transformation through ICEX.
This programme to internationalise the Spanish audiovisual sector receives a new boost in 2022-2023, with greater content diversity and volume of activities for the purposes of adapting to the new challenges of the audiovisual industry.
