With a cycle of films screening sponsored by the Ibermedia Program, from this Tuesday, October 29 and until November 5, the Third Week of Ibero-American Cooperation will be held in Caracas.
This film program, which will be based at the Bolívar Theater and the National Cinematheque, has the purpose of making the achievements of the Ibermedia Program known to the Venezuelan population, as well as celebrating Venezuela’s participation in the Latin American community.
The Law, Blue and not so Pink, My life for Sharon, Habana Eva, Maroa, Mission H20, Postcards of Leningrad, Nikkei, and Death in Ber morocco, are the national productions that will be screened during the Ibero-American Cooperation Week.
The creation of Ibermedia was approved in 1996, at the Ibero-American Summit of Heads of State and Government held in Margarita Island, Nueva Esparta State, as a stimulus program for the co-production of fiction and documentary films made in the Ibero-American Community.
Since the Ibermedia logo first appeared in 1998, 22 calls have been launched allowing 636 co-production projects to be supported; contributed to show 298 films and awarded 2,700 training grants in the countries of the community that, in addition to Venezuela, includes Andorra, Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Colombia, Costa Rica, Cuba, Chile, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, El Salvador, Spain, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Portugal and Uruguay.
Ibero-American Cooperation is an integrating model of a broad regional approach, with a flexible and horizontal design, in which participation is voluntary and countries intervene according to their national priorities.
