LatinoBuzz: Film Financing: Ecuador

Ecuador’s federal government began funding films in 2006.  Cncine, standing for Consejo Nacional del Cinematografia de Ecuador, funds development, production and post production for fiction features, documentaries and shorts are covered in the fund as well as two kinds of indigenous films – both Indian and African.  Cinema in Equador has increased several fold.  The first year of funding there were 9 films and in 2009 there were 18.  The films have shown on BBC, Telesur and other televisions stations interested in emerging cinema.  Since then we have seen an Ecuadorian film premiering at a festival including Pescador by Sebastian Cordero, Co mi corazón en Yambo of María Fernanda Restrepo, Abuelos of Carla Valencia, Feriado of Digo Araujo, En el nomkbre de la hija of Tania Hermida, Mejor no hablar de ciertas cosas de Javier Andrade, Uio de Micaela Rueda and Yakuaya of Marcelo Castillo among others.  Since 2007 through 2013, Cncine has supported over 222 projects with about US$ 700,000 per year distributed among eight categories.
