Iberseries & Platino Industria Presents Its Fourth Edition at Marché du Film
EGEDA and Fundación Secuoya, in collaboration with FIPCA, will organize the largest international event for the Ibero-American audiovisual industry from October 1 to 4 in Madrid. This unique gathering will bring together platforms, TV networks, creatives, producers, financiers, distributors, and buyers around four programming areas: Conferences and Keynotes, Iberscreenings, Ibero-American Audiovisual Market (MAI), and PRO Activities.

The deadline for project submissions for various Pitch calls for Platforms and Producers, as well as the early bird professional accreditation period, has been extended.

Iberseries & Platino Industria is increasing its training activities with workshops on Showrunners, AI in Film and Series Postproduction, Financial Tools, and Content Strategy: From Development to Sale, with calls opening on May 22.

The official presentation of the fourth edition of Iberseries & Platino Industria took place at the Fantastic Pavilion Terrace of MIF in Cannes on Friday. Samuel Castro, co-director of Iberseries & Platino Industria, and Adriana Castillo, general coordinator of Platino Industria, thanked the support and collaboration of the present authorities and organizations, as well as the large attendance of industry professionals. They also announced a preview of the contents and activities for Iberseries & Platino Industria 2024, to be held from October 1 to 4 at Matadero Madrid.

Driven by EGEDA and Fundación Secuoya, in collaboration with FIPCA, and supported by the Community of Madrid, Madrid City Council, ICEX Spain Export and Investment, and sponsored by Madrid Film Office and Film Madrid, Iberseries & Platino Industria is the main meeting point for platforms, TV networks, creatives, producers, distributors, buyers, financiers, and other agents of the film and audiovisual sector working worldwide for Spanish and Portuguese content.

Its purpose is to give visibility to Ibero-American films and series, enhance business and talent connections, promote international co-production, and commercialize content to consolidate projects and new financing opportunities.

Xiomara García, general coordinator of Film Madrid, accompanied by Nacho Carballo, Audiovisual Industries Advisor of the Community of Madrid, stated during the presentation that “the Community of Madrid supports this initiative from the beginning, as Madrid is a bridge between Latin America and Europe through Spain in the audiovisual field. We are 600 million Spanish speakers, we share a common language, and the stories we tell are universal and relatable on both sides of the Atlantic. Iberseries & Platino Industria has positioned itself as an unmissable event in our region for all international audiovisual creators and professionals. Continuing to support this is a sure bet, as it is another example of the Creative Entertainment Hub we are building together in the Community of Madrid.”

Víctor Aertsen from Madrid Film Office noted that "Madrid is the ideal bridge for Ibero-American and European audiovisual industries, and Iberseries & Platino Industria is a key event to foster relationships between professionals and companies in these regions. This is the fourth year we support the market, which has only grown and established itself as an indispensable event for Ibero-American audiovisuals."
