BIFFF at Blood Window 2022

The BIFFF and the BIF Market were back in Buenos Aires for the Ventana Sur film market, from November 28 until December 2, looking for hot, new Latin-American genre films and projects. We were especially proud to present the Mad in Belgium showcase at Blood Window, the genre section of Ventana Sur.

Florence Saâdi of Okayss introduced Heat of Madness, the new project of Karim Ouelhaj (Megalomaniac, BIFFF 2022), while director-producer Justin Ambrosino revealed his project The Big Mermaid to the Latin American genre industry. This showcase was made possible thanks to the support of the Fédération Wallonie-Bruxelles.

In Buenos Aires, the BIFFF and the BIF Market and the INCAA and Blood Window have signed an agreement to formalize and start the reciprocal support of the BIF Market and Blood Window with regard to the screening of television series in their two respective countries!

Latin American television series will be screened in Brussels for buying purposes in Europe. This will also mean a launching pad for Belgian (and European) series shown at the Buenos Aires market. Hence, they will be able to conquer the giant Latin American market!

The main goal of this agreement is the promotion of genre cinema, more specifically genre television series”, declared Guy Delmote, director of the BIFFF, and Romain Roll, director of the BIF Market. “That is why the BIFFF with its BIF Market, one of the world’s biggest genre festivals, and Blood Window, the biggest genre film market in Latin America, have signed this agreement. Even if during the first year we will be focusing on Belgian and Argentinian series, in the future we want to support all European and Latin American genre productions.

Belgian series attack Latin America

The first call for projects was launched at the 3th BIF Market, which took place from the 10th until the 13th of April 2019 at BOZAR, the Centre for Fine Arts in Brussels.

B2 TV Project is a collaboration between BIF Market, Ventana Sur and Blood Window, consisting by presenting 2 Argentina Tv Series in Work In Progress during the BIF Market and 2 Belgian Tv Series in Work In Progress during Blood Window (at Ventana Sur).
