Call for Projects for WIP Screenings

The directors, screenwriters and producers of four feature-film, series or new-format projects at the postproduction stage will be selected to present a 10/12-minute clip of their work before a select audience of festival programmers, exhibitors, producers, distributors, sales agents and film library representatives from Spain and worldwide.

The screenings will take place at the CCCB on 24 November 2024 as part of l’Alternativa PRO.

At the end of the programme, and provided that participants have successfully completed the WIP Screenings programme in full, each of the four selected projects will be awarded a €300 grant to cover participants’ expenses related to their required presence at l’Alternativa PRO, as well as any other expenses directly related to their participation in the programme.

For feature films, the Selection Committee requires a clip of at least 40 min to assess submitted projects; for series or new formats, at least a pilot episode is required.


The Selection Committee may also decide to consider this project for the following Cinema Pendent programmes:

  1. EXTREMLAB
  2. Mentoring Acció Cinema Pendent


Eligible prizes:

  1. Non Finito Prize
  2. Río Bravo Prize
  3. Antaviana Prize
  4. Music Library & SFX Prize
  5. REC Primer Test


L’Alternativa PRO also offers
  • Personalised Advice Sessions. Participants with shortlisted projects are called to meetings with experts in accordance with their particular needs, as identified by reading through their submitted project or following discussions of requirements. A carefully selected mix of accomplished screenwriters, consultants, producers, distributors, commissioners, editors, sales agents, festival programmers and institutional representatives will be invited as experts to ensure sessions are as productive as possible.
  • Professional Accreditation. Participants with shortlisted projects will be issued with professional accreditation to attend all festival screenings and l’Alternativa PRO activities.
  • Meeting Points. In addition to the specific activities for each project, l’Alternativa PRO also organises a series of lunches, social get-togethers and parties offering participants further opportunities to engage accredited professionals in conversation.
  • Project Follow-Up. Projects will receive ongoing support on social media and newsletters until they finally reach the big screen.
  • On-the-Spot Meetings. We also employ our in-depth knowledge of filmmakers’ careers and expectations to arrange on-the-spot meetings and help forge ties between industry experts and project participants.
