Iberseries & Platino Industria, whose third edition will be held from October 3 to 6 at Matadero Madrid, is promoted by EGEDA and Fundación Secuoya, with the collaboration of FIPCA. The event also opens enrolment to participate in the Pitch Session for Platforms and Production Companies with Secuoya Studios Stories, in which scripted series projects in development can register.

This unique meeting point seeks to provide visibility to feature films and series in Spanish and Portuguese, promote the talent of creators, foster international co-productions and the commercialization of content as a key formula for strengthening projects and new synergies.


SHOWRUNNERS WORKSHOP

Iberseries & Platino Industria announces the third Workshop for the training of showrunners, aimed at people with training and/or experience in the field of writing, directing or audiovisual production, who have a series project to be developed in the Workshop and whose main language is Spanish or Portuguese.

The maximum number of finalist projects will be nine, and up to two people per project may attend. The Workshop will be held on October 3, 4 and 5 and will be exclusively face-to-face. Its purpose is to provide participants with the specific, necessary skills to become showrunners, including writing, production and project management.

The selection committee for the workshop is headed by Marina Seresesky (director, screenwriter and actress) and Álvaro Lavín (producer), its coordinators. They are founders of Meridional Producciones, a Madrid-based film, television and theater company focused on producing feature films, documentaries and short films and developing TV series projects. The tutors will be Analeine Cal y Mayor, screenwriter and director of film and television; Marta Suárez, specializing in directing and screenwriting; and Carmen Jiménez, director, screenwriter and editor.

The selected projects will have four curatorial sessions before and after the workshop to correct and improve the projects, which will then be open for evaluation by the tutors during the first two weeks of November. The Showrunners Workshop will schedule a conference with a renowned professional of the audiovisual industry and participants will be able to present their project in one-on-one meetings with executives from production companies, studios and platforms.

To participate, submit your application before Thursday, June 29 at 6 p.m. (GMT+2).
