About WIP Latino

Wanting to contribute to the completion of Latino and Ibero-American films, WIP Latino is seeking feature films that are currently in post-production, made by either Latino or Ibero-American directors living in North America (USA or Canada), or by American and Canadian directors who have a film with Latino or Latin American content.

WIP Latino will take place on October 7th, 2016 as part of the Guadalajara International Film Festival in Los Angeles –.

Three feature fiction and/or documentary films seeking post-production funds will be chosen to screen before the jury and film industry professionals at FICG in LA. WIP Latino is working to garner specific support for the post-production and commercial distribution of the selected films. The awards will be announced in the coming weeks.
