In addition to its regular programme of events, Talents Guadalajara 2019 is especially scouting for projects to participate in its Talent Project Market (formerly named Talent Coproduction Meeting), aimed at emerging producers and directors with projects in development.

Offered in collaboration with FICG Industry, the Talent Project Market includes an intensive pitching workshop with individual training for each project so that participants can present their projects to industry professionals at FICG Industry and find producers and co-producers.

The call is open to emerging producers and directors who have a project in development with the following information: bio and filmography of producer and director, short and long synopsis, budget, provisional financing plan, project status, director’s statement, and teaser/trailer/demo clips.

Who can apply?
Talents Guadalajara is open to screenwriters, directors (including animation directors), producers, cinematographers, editors, sound designers, composers, actors and film critics from Mexico, Central America (Belize, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, Panama) and the Caribbean (Antigua and Barbuda, Bahamas, Barbados, Cuba, Dominican Republic, Granada, Haiti, Jaimaica, Saint Kitts and Nevis, Saint Vinces and the Grenadines, Saint Lucia, Trinidad and Tobago). Participants should be fluent in Spanish and English.
