Not satisfied with merely being one of the most important

Con el espritu que anima este festival, la diversidad y la


apertura a manifestaciones flmicas de otros pases, el
Instituto Mexicano de Cinematografa y el Festival Internacional de Cine Guanajuato, organizan la sexta edicin
del Foro Bilateral, cuyo objetivo es abrir un espacio de
negocio para la comunidad cinematogrfica.
Este ao, el foro se realizar con la participacin de autoridades y miembros de la industria del cine de Mxico y
Colombia, quienes en forma conjunta explorarn reas de
oportunidad que permitan a ambas cinematografas fortalecer la produccin, co-produccin y distribucin de su cine.

16 FESTIVAL INTERNACIONAL DE CINE GUANAJUATO

La relacin flmica entre Mxico y Colombia ha tenido resultados interesantes, dado as que en los ltimos aos
se ha concretado la co-produccin de ocho largometrajes, indicador de que el trabajo coordinado puede extenderse a otros mbitos de la cadena industrial del cine.

Como parte de la experiencia que puede enriquecer el


quehacer flmico en Mxico, podemos mencionar la presencia de la Direccin de Cinematografa del Ministerio
de Cultura, el Consejo Nacional para las Artes y la Cultura en Cinematografa y el Fondo Mixto de Promocin
Cinematogrfica PROIMGENES Colombia, el cual
busca fomentar la produccin y apoyar a los creadores.
Este Fondo tiene como objetivo fortalecer al sector flmico colombiano, impulsando la concertacin de polticas
pblicas y sectoriales, con el fin de articular reglas de
juego claras que impulsen la cinematografa del pas.
Con problemas similares a los de nuestra industria, como
la distribucin articulada y formacin de nuevos pblicos
locales, el intercambio de puntos de vista con Colombia
nos permitir visualizar soluciones imaginativas y viables
que, con la conjuncin de esfuerzos, logren que nuestras cinematografas sean parte del imaginario colectivo
y propicien su desarrollo como industria audiovisual.

In the spirit of the festivals diversity and its welcoming of


multi-cultural cinematographic works, the Mexican Film Institute (IMCINE) and Guanajuato International Film Festival
present the sixth annual Bilateral Forum, with the goal of
providing an open space for business to the film community.
This year, the forum welcomes participant authorities and
film industry members from Mexico and spotlight country
Colombia, who together will explore specific areas of interest that allow for both countries to strengthen their film production, co-production and distribution.
Mexicos existing relationship with Colombia has already
produced interesting results. In the last few years weve
achieved co-production of eight feature films, indicating that
a coordinated work force can extend into other fields within
our industries.
Serving as an example of how Mexican production can
be enriched by Colombian experience, were aided by the
presence of Direccin de Cinematografa del Ministerio de
Cultura (Ministry of Cultures FIlm Department), Consejo
Nacional para las Artes y la Cultura en Cinematografa (National Film Council) and the Fondo Mixto de Promocin
Cinematogrfica PROIMGENES Colombia (Mixed Promotional Film Fund) all of which foster film production by
supporting its creators whilst also promoting a reconciliation of public and sector based policy, resulting in a clear
set of rules, essential to the growth of their industry.
Sharing similar problems, such as reliable distribution structures and a need for new local audiences, an exchange of
ideas with Colombia can allow us to come up with inspired,
viable solutions to promote development within both our
audiovisual industries.

pelcula. Revelar aspectos exitosos de estos procesos as
como los errores y las discusiones. Esta presentacin se
acompaar posteriormente de trabajo en grupo sobre los
proyectos participantes y sus necesidades.

Having worked in the production field for 15 years, I firmly


believe that each film is a prototype and asks for a different
type of commitment from the producer. Through the films I
was involved on, I will share my subjective point of view of
how to introduce a project to the market and how a project can become a film. I will relate the successful aspects of
these processes as well as the mistakes and the disputes.
This presentation will then be followed by a group work on the
participants projects and aspirations.

Our age of anxiety / Ansiedad en tiempos de cambio

En Film Modo, creemos que es hora de pensar diferente.


La ansiedad de la industria es causa de no tener las herramientas accessibles o comparables a las usadas por los
grandes estudios. Como podemos de manera mas facil, rpida, y efectiva controlar derechos audiovisuales a clientes
en mundo?

At one time, audiences were simply glued to their televisions


and local theater. Today, eyeball concentration is much more
fragmented: television, tablets, mobile phones, websites,
etc. all get a piece of consumers attention, and by default
widening the market to sales possibilities, which makes the
already difficult task of managing an extensive catalog even
more complex.
With the ground shifting beneath our feet, Its time to think
differently. At Film Modo, our approach to target market segmentation comes from asking the questions. What problem
are we trying to solve? How do we make it simpler, faster and
easier to sell media rights globally?

INDUSTRIA

En los ltimos aos, la tecnologa, tabletas, telfonos mviles, a logrado separar la atencin de los consumidores de
sus pantallas de TV & Cine y transformar el mercado audiovisual en fragmentos mucho mas especializados que compiten por la atencin de cada segmento complicando aun

Con el fin de estimular la creacin de guiones que fortalezcan la


Industria Cinematogrfica Nacional, el Gobierno del Estado de Guanajuato, la Fundacin Expresin en Corto, la Sociedad Mexicana de
Directores y Realizadores de obras audiovisuales, el Instituto Mexicano de Cinematografa y la Academia Mexicana de Ciencias y Artes Cinematogrficas, presentan anualmente el Concurso Nacional
de Guin Cinematogrfico, siendo el de mayor convocatoria en el
pas tanto en corto como en largometraje. Este ao se recibieron 102
guiones de largometraje y 180 guiones de cortometraje.
With the goal of stimulating the creation of screenplays which contribute to the strengthening of the national film industry, the State
Government of Guanajuato, the Expresin en Corto Foundation, the
Mexican Association of Directors, the Mexican Institute of Cinematography (IMCINE) and Mexican Academy of Motion Picture Arts
and Sciences present the annual National Screenwriting Contest
for short and feature films. This year 102 feature and 180 short film
scripts were received.

La produccin cinematogrfica de largo y cortometraje


mexicano sigue progresando a la par del crecimiento y expansin del Festival Internacional de Cine Guanajuato. El
GIFF ha pasado de ser una expresin en corto, a ser la
comunicacin global del audiovisual en unos cuantos aos.

Mexican feature and short film production continues progressing with the expansion and growth of the Guanajauato
International Film Festival. In just a few years the festival has
transformed itself from an Expresin en Corto (short expression) to a global communication of the audiovisual.

El incremento inusual de la produccin flmica nacional fue


propiciado, adems del desarrollo de nuevas tecnologas,
por polticas pblicas federales y estatales, que impulsadas
desde la comunidad flmica y escuchadas por autoridades
del ramo, han logrado en los dos ltimos aos elevar la
produccin de largos superando las 110 pelculas anuales,
cifra que solo habamos alcanzado en la poca de oro del
cine mexicano.

The unusual growth in national film production has been aided in part by the rapid development of new technologies, but
it is also due to the federal and state politics that supported
by the local film community as well as by local film authorities
have in the last two years managed to elevate national feature
film production to surpass 110 films per year, a number only
previously reached during the golden age of Mexican cinema.

Las historias que se filmaron surgieron desde todos los


rincones de nuestro pas y nos hablan de la necesidad de
expresin audiovisual de los mexicanos. Para filmar cien se
deben escribir muchos guiones. Conocido es que no todos
aquellos que se escriben, se filman. En EUA lo logra uno de
cada veinte en promedio y en el mejor de los casos uno de
diez. En Mxico la proporcin es uno de cinco.

Cmo poner a escribir a nuestros guionistas con tan pocos apoyos federales y estatales? Cmo impulsarlos, si
los productores del siglo XXI no desarrollan ideas o proyectos y andan buscando obras terminadas para presentarlas
a los diversos fondos?

Cmo? Si las instituciones especializadas como son las


Sociedades de Gestin de la escritura flmica han dejado
de impulsar la obra de sus agremiados presentes y futuros.
Lejano se ven los das cuando los Sindicatos de cine y las
Sociedades de Autor fundaron un banco de guiones que
entre otros frutos propicio el nacimiento de Rojo Amanecer,
pelcula que obtuvo mil millones de pesos de Film Rental y
que su creacin fue posible gracias a una beca.
Mientras se cierran oportunidades en muchos lados, el
GIFF se mantiene, y como todos los aos lanz su convocatoria de guin. Ms de 280 guionistas buscan obtener
el premio que les permita obtener un modesto estmulo en
efectivo, pero en realidad aspiran al lauro que les d posibilidad de iniciar el difcil camino para convertirse en pelcula.
Mientras exista este premio la Sociedad Mexicana de Directores Realizadores de Obras Audiovisuales, S.G.C., lo
apoyar, esperando que los ganadores vean prontamente
su sueo escrito, convertido en pelculas y ests sean estrenadas en las salas de cine de nuestro pas.

Our screen stories originate from every corner of the country


and they speak of a necessity for Mexican filmmakers to express themselves through audiovisual media. To film a hundred, more than a hundred screenplays must be written. It is a
known fact not all screenplays make it to the screen. In the US
an average of one out of every 20 makes it and best case scenario its one out of ten. In Mexico the average is one out of five.
How do we get our writers to write with such limited state
and federal support? How do we push them forward when
21st century producers no longer develop ideas but instead
look for finished works to present to funders? How? If specialized institutions such as the national Writers Guilds have
stopped supporting the work of their guild members past
and future. Far seem the days when the Syndicates and Author Societies put together a script bank that amongst other
achievements led to the birth of Rojo Amanecer, a film that
obtained a thousand million pesos through Film Rental and
that its creation was made possible through a grant.
While opportunities disappear everywhere fortunately GIFF
stands strong, and every year we launch a National Screenwriting Contest. More than 280 screenwriters seek this award
which will grant them a small cash price, but what they really seek is the recognition, one that can perhaps guide them
through the difficult path to see their stories on the screen.
As long as the award exists it will have the full support of
the Sociedad Mexicana de Directores Realizadores de Obras Audiovisuales, S.G.C (Mexican Directors Association)
always hoping the winners go on to find success and see
their written dreams transformed into films and that these
are released on our countrys screens.
