Conecta FICTION to Shine a Light on Chile


Chile has been selected as the first of the two focus countries for the third edition of Conecta FICTION.

Conecta FICTION 3 will take place from June 17 to 20 in Pamplona-Iruña (Navarra, Spain), in the Congress Center and Auditorium of Navarra, also known as Baluarte. The international networking platform is exclusively dedicated to the co-production of scripted series that promotes business exchange between America and Europe. Its “focus on” program underscores two countries, one from each continent, to analyze their industry and to present the unique aspects of these territories, their potential as co-producers and the talent of their local creators. Colombia and Germany were the two highlighted countries in the previous edition.

Géraldine Gonard, director of Conecta FICTION, said: “One cannot ask for a better international frame to highlight what novelties Conecta FICTION 3 will offer. Nor could we have better news than to announce that Chile will be the ‘American Focus Country’ and that their industry will have a special place in our program. We know that Chilean talent has many and wonderful qualities that characterize them among the American producers, and we know that they are going to surprise the European ones.”

Sebastían Freund, the president of the Association of Cinema and Television Producers and producer at Rizoma, a company that is currently negotiating contents with Spanish television for development and co-production, commented: “It is an honor for everyone that Chile is a guest country in a world-class event such as Conecta FICTION. We are sure that, in this event, our TV series projects will find the most suitable partners in the world to find funding and generate co-productions. Chile is developing and producing series with the key world players, such as Amazon, Netflix, Fremantle, Movistar and European free-TV channels, proving the quality of their content. These products have raised much interest and have positioned themselves internationally.”
