The agreement between Gijón International Film Festival and the School of Cinema and Audiovisuals in Madrid includes the OPEN ECAM Work-in-Progress award, which will be announced during FICX Industry Days.
The ECAM (School of Cinema and Audiovisuals in Madrid) will be one of the partner institutions in FICX 56th edition.

ECAM will take part in FICX Industry Days through different activities that will bring to the audience and Asturian producers some initiatives related to international distribution and sales of projects, and funding and production. In addition, ten students of the Master’s in Audiovisual Distribution will attend these sessions and they will be part of the first edition of Campus FICX.
On the first day of FICX Industry Days (19th November), Toni Oliete —Masters professor in Audiovisual Distribution and Film Factory Head of Sales— will moderate the round table discussion on sales and distribution, ‘How to find the best match’. Susana Santos Rodrigues (VAIVEM), Ferran Herranz (La Aventura Audiovisual) and Carlos Ríos (NOUCINEMART) will also take part in this activity.

The presentation of La Incubadora will take place on November 20. La Incubadora by The Screen is a programme focused on the development of film features, supported by ECAM, and aimed at emerging producers, directors and screenwriters. It consists of mentoring, individual advice, workshops and funding of five feature film projects with international potential. Among its main objectives, La Incubadora intends to boost Spanish industry internationally. For this purpose, agreements have been made with Torino Film Lab Meeting Event, Rotterdam Lab (IFFR), Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) and EAVE (European Audiovisual Entrepreneurs). The programme is supported by Acción Cultural Española (AC/E) through its Programme for the Internationalization of Spanish Culture (PICE). Recently, the call for the Second Edition of La Incubadora has been closed; selected projects will be announced in February 2019. Gemma Vidal (programme manager) and Jaime Gona (producer of ‘El Profesor’, winner of the first edition) will make a presentation for Asturian producers on the day-to-day of the programme and types of work.
FICX and ECAM collaboration includes the OPEN ECAM Work-in-Progress award. It gives the chance to use all the resources available at ECAM (sets, material, studios, technical equipment…), as established by ECAM, and providing that the edition and/or post-production of the work of the awarded author will be presented as work-in-progress in the PUSH PLAY session within FICX Industry Days. The prize will be valid for 18 months from the closing date of FICX 56 edition.
Teacher training in Asturias

During festival dates, ECAM will offer a training course for secondary and sixth form teachers called ‘¡Silencio, rodamos! El cine en las aulas’ (‘Silence, action! Cinema at school’). The course will take place on November 20, 21 and 22, in Gijón Municipal Centre – Oriente. The registration for this course will open soon.

This course is an easy training programme for teachers and offers a theoretical-practical approach to the different elements that make up the audiovisual narrative, as well as the cinematic language. The participants will acquire knowledge to develop an analytical and critical thinking, and the basic tools to introduce audiovisuals in the classroom.
This training is one of the many that ECAM develops within its audiovisual literacy plan in our country.
