Ventana Sur


Years running: 14 (since 2009)

Ventana Sur

Latin American animation film market.


After ninth successful editions, Ventana Sur has indisputably become the main Latin American Film Market. Each year, it receives more than 2,000 accredited members, among whom there are more than 300 buyers and sellers from across the five continents.
A modern infrastructure with over 40 individual stalls located in a quiet and comfortable area of the market, enables buyers to watch the most recent Argentinean and Latin American productions included in the video library. During the market, there are several theatres available where films are screened daily, offering potential buyers the chance to watch them on the big screen. At the end of each day, the distributors of those films receive the list of accredited delegates who attend the screening.


  • The representatives of the selected projects will have Access to Training and Practise Workshops during December 10th and 11th given by international experts.
  • A jury made up of Mifa members and animation experts will be present during Animation! Pitching Sessions in Buenos Aires and will choose four winning projects (two for TV series and two for feature film) that will be part of a special Animation! programme in Annecy 2019, France. The International Animation Film Festival of Annecy will offer, as an award, an accreditation per project, which will give full access to any market events (Mifa pass). 
  • Films of Primer Corte Section will compete for awards, consisting of several post-production and distribution services, among other incentives.
