Hot from the press and a great Christmas present for all the craftsmen of Belgian series!
In Buenos Aires, the BIFFF and the BIF Market and the INCAA and Blood Window have signed an agreement to formalize and start the reciprocal support of the BIF Market and Blood Window with regard to the screening of television series in their two respective countries!
Latin American television series will be screened in Brussels for buying purposes in Europe. This will also mean a launching pad for Belgian (and European) series shown at the Buenos Aires market. Hence, they will be able to conquer the giant Latin American market!
“The main goal of this agreement is the promotion of genre cinema, more specifically genre television series”, declared Guy Delmote, director of the BIFFF, and Romain Roll, director of the BIF Market. “That is why the BIFFF with its BIF Market, one of the world’s biggest genre festivals, and Blood Window, the biggest genre film market in Latin America, have signed this agreement. Even if during the first year we will be focusing on Belgian and Argentinian series, in the future we want to support all European and Latin American genre productions.”
A call for projects will be launched at the next BIF Market, which will take place from the 10th until the 13th of April 2019 at BOZAR, the Centre for Fine Arts in Brussels.
