Partes Usadas (Used Parts). Mexico/France/Spain. 2007. Directed by Aarón Fernández

For over a decade, Ibermedia has been instrumental in the continued ascent of Latin American, Spanish, and Portuguese films. This intergovernmental organization began with seven member countries; today films from 18 member countries appear on festival schedules and in cinemas the world over.

Ibermedia facilitates and helps to finance coproductions between its Spanish- and Portuguese-language member countries, and grants money for international distribution and promotion once the films are finished. Professional film organizations from the country sponsoring the proposal select the projects to be helped by Ibermedia, thus ensuring each project’s autonomy. With no strings attached, the filmmakers’ personal visions are protected and the projects retain their national and/or personal-historical character.

To date, Ibermedia has supported over 500 films across a wide spectrum of genres and approaches, and provided training for film professionals. As the films in this exhibition make clear, Ibermedia encourages cinematic innovation and supports cinema with something to say. Several filmmakers will be present to introduce their films.

Organized by Jytte Jensen, Curator, Department of Film, with the generous collaboration of Ibermedia’s Technical Office, Madrid (Elena Vilardell, Elena Figaredo, Víctor Sánchez).

This exhibition is made possible with the support of the producers and filmmakers of the selected films; Agencia Española de Cooperación Internacional; and the US distributors.
