PuertoLab IV

PuertoLab is an initiative of the Cartagena International Film Festival that was set up to assist Ibero-American flmmakers with feature-length projects at the post-production phase.

Now celebrating its fourth edition, this year’s selection sails between the real and imaginary worlds with two documentaries and three fction projects that will be shown to a seasoned jury of critics, festival programmers and international sales and distribution agents who can offer advice and feedback and successfully steer these flms through the post-production phase.

The flms selected stand to win a bumper post-production services package consisting of 8 color correction sessions, 8 fnal sound mixing and DCP master sessions at Cinecolor labs in Colombia or Argentina, the design of a poster by Motiff and a plane ticket courtesy of Jet Blue.

Jorge Forero, PuertoLab Chief Programmer
