Sixth Sense High (Colégio do Templo) is one of the 10 projects selected for the International Co-Production Pitching Session of Conecta FICTION. The selection features a broad range of dramas – political and historical. The 10 finalist projects, which are at various stages of development, have been selected by the Editorial Committee out of a total of 70 projects submitted to be in the limelight for investors and potential partners on Wednesday 21 June. The selection is based on the quality, originality, and suitability for co-production between Europe, the United States and Latin America, reflecting the criteria of the call.
Sixth Sense High follows the paranormal investigations of Sara, a student with visionary powers, in a boarding school for outcasts where the academic life mixes with supernatural events and was created by EMMY-nominated writer-producer Nuno Bernardo.
These 10 projects, together with the 6 Spanish projects from the SGAE Foundation already selected, will all be presented to key players from the audiovisual industry during Conecta FICTION and get a chance to receive a development contract from either Movistar + (the digital subscription platform of Spanish telco giant Telefonica) or RTVE (the Spanish public service broadcaster). Movistar + and RTVE will each unveil the title of the project they grant a development contract on Thursday night, during the screening Premiere. A recap of the best tv series produced, aired and distributed by RTVE over the last couple of years, and the first images of the brand-new series produced by Movistar+ will also be featured on this occasion.
Conecta FICTION is the first international event exclusively dedicated to the coproduction of fictional television series between Europe, Latin America and the Hispanic United States. The first edition will be celebrated in Santiago de Compostela between the 20th and the 23rd of June. It is organized by the Axencia Galega das Industrias Culturais (Agadic) of the Galicia’s Xunta government, ICEX Exportation and Investments Spain and the SGAE Foundation, and it is produced by Inside content.
