As we watch a new Iberoamerican audiovisual community organizing itself across the world, we need to know the general history and current landscape of how production and distribution of Latin American films operates in Latin America and the world. This book makes this landscape accessible to those involved in film. It is organized by chapters on each Latin American country. The main focus of every chapter is on current developments in their national cinema industry, on films originating there and how these films are financed. Film education as well as a look at exhibition is also included. Included is a chapter on other countries in Europe, Asia, Australia, Africa and the Middle East inasmuch as they are involved with “Iberoamerican” films as well as a chapter on North America and its relationship to “Iberoamerican” films.

In addition to a hard book copy (in English and in an abridged Spanish language version) online access will help readers stay up to date on developments . The online versions of this book at will help the readers by themselves to update

Filmmakers, companies, and film students from Latin America, North America, Europe and Asia interested in co-productions with Latin American countries will find this indispensable for understanding the current and developing business financial environment in all of Latin America country by country.
