The FIRE!! PRO section is intended for professionals in the film sector (directors, producers, exhibitors, distributors, actors, journalists, teachers and students of film schools, etc.), and also for any other person in our audience interested in knowing more about the world of the cinema.
FIRE !! PRO was born from the need to create spaces for reflection and creation given the low production of LGBTI-themed films in our country, compared to other countries such as France, Germany, the United States and others in Latin America.
In Spain, the cinema dedicated to affective and sexual diversity is – paradoxically – very absent. Here, the distribution relies heavily on foreign films to address the LGTBI issue. Although the LGBTI community is here particularly active, relatively well integrated into the social environment and quite visible on the media and television level, all of this is not very often reflected in local film production.
For all this, FIRE!! PRO has 3 main objectives:
To encourage discussion and training on the production and commercialization of national LGBTI-themed films.
To implement a support space for the creation and development of LGBTI-themed films.
To support the scriptwriters, directors and audio-visual producers in the realization of their film projects on this subject in the initial stage of the cinematographic process.
FIRE!! PRO 2023 includes:
FIRE!! LAB 2023
3rd Laboratory for the development of LGBTI films
The FIRE!! LAB is a laboratory for the development of LGBTI-themed films, which seeks to encourage their production and commercialization in Spain. The initiative, which will take place within the framework of the FIRE!! 2023, will last 3 days, from the12th to 14th of June.
The scriptwriters, directors and producers of the selected projects and films will receive advice / tutorials in artistic areas such as script, direction, production as well as marketing and internationalization, by prominent professionals of the national and international film industry.
