Miami Selects Nine for "Encuentros" Program

The Miami International Film Festival (March 2 – 11) will include nine filmmakers to participate in its “Miami Encuentros” program, which gives emerging producers from Spain and Latin America the opportunity to present new projects to U.S. and international industry professionals, including producers, sales agents, television stations and distributors. This year’s participants are: “Astronauts Diary,” directed by Manuel Huerga (Spain); “Dog Eat Dog,” directed by Carlos Moreno (Colombia); “Dog Security,” directed by Jorge Gaggero (Argentina); “Giant,” directed by Adrian Biniez (Argentina); “King of Cha Cha Cha,” directed by Isabel Martinez (Costa Rica) and Vicente Ferraz (Brazil); “Lokas,” directed by Gonzalo Justiniano (Chile); “Mosquita and Mari,” directed by Aurora Guerrero (USA); “Negro Luz y Fer,” directed by Luis Ortega (Argentina); “Square Man,” directed by Andre Ristum (Brazil). “With Miami Encuentros, we are putting rhetoric into action,” commented MIFF director Nicole Guillemet in a statement. “Having a brilliant vision is only part of the cinematic equation. Miami Encuentros engages emerging filmmakers by helping them bring that vision into fruition and ultimately enriching the process as a whole.” [Brian Brooks]
