LOS CABOS INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL ANNOUNCES THREE NEW PRIZES
Los Cabos International Film Festival is pleased to announce three new prizes in its 2017 edition. In addition to being the most important film and cultural meeting point between Mexico, the USA, and Canada, it is still the festival which confers the largest number of awards in all of Latin America.
The Festival’s organizers believe supporting film-makers and the exhibition of their film and television projects to be essential. To this effect, during each edition, the Festival takes on the task of creating a substantial call for entries that achieves the goals both in the selection of feature films in our Official Selection and in the project hatchery of the Gabriel Figueroa Film Fund. That is why the aforementioned three new prizes encourage the development of works in progress with the following features and amounts:
Los Cabos Work In Progress Prize. The best Mexican feature film at the postproduction stage will receive a cash prize of $120,000.00 pesos.
Una Voz Con Todos (A Voice With All) Prize. Thanks to the Mexican Public Broadcasting System’s Channel 30, for the first time we will award a prize to a TV series at the development stage, consisting of a cash prize of $100,000.00 pesos.
Chemistry Prize. For the first time, this post-production company will award a $300,000.00 pesos prize in services to a TV pilot for a series at the development stage.
These three prizes come as an addition to the other nine which the Festival previously awarded, for a total of twelve.
With each edition the Festival builds new valuable alliances in favor of Mexican film-makers. Each and everyone of our international partners plays a key role in the development and promotion of the films, projects and TV series which are part of the current edition.
We thank Cinemex, FIPRESCI, Labodigital, CTT Exp & Rentals, Talent On the Road, Una Voz Con Todos and Chemistry for supporting our sixth edition and contributing to the creation of new stories.
The invitation to our Official Selection will remain open until the 25th of August. The invitation for film and television works in development and Work in Progress projects, has been extended until September the 1st.
