Of the 87 films submitted as their countries’ official Oscar entries, eight are by Berlinale Talents alumni. Our Latin American alums are well represented in the selection, with films from Columbia, Panama, Paraguay and Venezuela.
We’re particularly proud of the three titles that were selected for our Talent Project Market, which gives producers a chance to present their material to financiers and co-producers: „The Cakemaker“ from Israel (TPM 2014), „Secret Ingredient“ from Macedonia (TPM 2015) and Venezuela’s „The Family“ (TPM 2014).
The Oscar nominations will be announced in January 2019. Until then, we’ll be keeping our fingers crossed. Congratulations to everyone on the longlist!
VENEZUELA: “The Family” – writer, director, producer, co-editor Gustavo Rondon Cordova (BT 2007 & 2014) — selected for Talent Project Market 2014
