Special Mentoring Program for Female Creators

The Special Mentoring Program for Female Creators arose with the goals of carrying out actions in favor of gender equality and to generate a space to develop the female creators’ potential fostering the interaction with international experts in an industry in which few women have access to the directing role.

In alliance with the Annecy International Animation Film Festival and its market MIFA, this year we will again launch the Special Mentoring Program for Female Creators. Therefore, all Latin American series and feature film projects that are registered in the 2021 Animation! Pitching Sessions and accredit a woman in the role of director will be eligible to have the chance to take part in this Program. A Jury comprised of outstanding members of the international industry will select up to five finalist projects which will be announced during Ventana Sur. The selected directors will be granted the access to a training held by international experts which will let them improve many aspects of their projects

After completing the Mentoring Program and thanks to the support of the Annecy International Animation Film Festival, one the projects selected by the Jury will be showcased at MIFA 2022.
