INCAA launches call for TV documentaries production

The National Institute of Film and Audiovisual Arts of Argentina (INCAA) has launched the call for “Concurso Incubadora” contest for the development of TV documentaries projects.

The proposals must be submitted via the INCAA website. Ten projects will be selected in three stages. The call for competition ends on May 21.

According to the entity, 48 projects will be selected in the first stage, two for each province and two for the City of Buenos Aires.

In the second stage, 24 projects will be selected, which will receive a cash prize for their development. In addition, creators will be accompanied by tutors specialized in the presentation and pitching at international level. This stage will end with a pitching in front of the MAR DOC LAB market participants, in the 2017 edition of the Mar del Plata International Festival.

In the third stage, ten of these 24 projects will be selected, which will seek for foreign funding in the international market.

Karina Castellano, director of Cine.Ar TV (formerly IncaaTV) and Cine.Ar Play (Odeón), will participate in the next edition of NexTV Series South America, the leading conference organized by Dataxis, to be held on June 14 and 15 in the Alvear palace Hotel of Buenos Aires.
