Thanks to this agreement and alongside other measures, the San Sebastian LAU HAIZETARA Documentary Co-Production Forum will increase its prize for the best project to €5,000. (IBAIA-ELKARGI Award).
This collaboration agreed between IBAIA (Association of Independent Audio-Visual Producers of the Basque Country), organiser of the Forum, and ELKARGI, strengthens and underlines the commitment of the financial entity with the Basque audiovisual sector.
Over the years, ELKARGI has participated in the financing of a large number of cinema productions with the participation of Basque companies. It has now intensified its efforts and is prepared to offer audiovisual companies financial services appropriate to the specific needs of the sector, both in the obtaining of financing and the search for investors and creation of Economic Interest Groupings (EIGs), a tool which is receiving more and more demand from the sector.
This prize is in addition to the IBAIA – Bilibin Circular Prize in environmental consultancy, which was created with the twin aims of raising the awareness of companies with regard to the need to begin the ecological transition process and boosting compliance with the necessary requirements which different administrations are establishing to gain access to their corresponding aid packages in this field.
We would like to remind you that the open call for the presentation of projects for the XVIII edition of the San Sebastian LAU HAIZETARA Forum, which will be held over the 19th, 20th and 21st September within the framework of the San Sebastian Film Festival, is open until 27th June.
