What a joy it is to meet again! The 12th edition of JIIFF is underway and we are excited to share the first news with you.
In September we opened calls for the Short Film Competition, aimed exclusively at Uruguayan productions and co-productions. This section of the festival is positioning itself as a great window to meet the new names in our cinema, professionals with a strong voice both in filmmaking and production.
In addition, we opened different calls for Working JIIFF, the industry space that we created to contribute with the development of international projects and co-productions, and to encourage training opportunities. Two of these activities are FARO José Ignacio - Paris, an online pitching space for Latin American projects with producers from the Paris region, and the International Co-production Meeting, which invites Latin American production companies to participate in networking and pitching face-to-face meetings in José Ignacio with the possibility of winning a 5,000 euros prize awarded by the National Centre for Cinema and the Moving Image in France.
Also within Working JIIFF, we launched the first edition of Generation J, a training space designed for advanced students and those who are taking their first professional steps in fiction cinema in Uruguay. You can find all the information for each call further down! The 12th edition of JIIFF will be held from 15th to 23rd January 2022 in José Ignacio. Save the date!
