Celebrated pix in post competition selects five debuts, four from women directores

MADRID — Chile’s “Los Perros” and Argentina’s “Hunting Season” and “The Desert Bride” are set for France’s 31st Toulouse Cinelatino Fest Films in Progress showcase, which has often proved a gateway to big festival selection, beginning with May’s Cannes Festival.

Of Toulouse’s six entries last year. “The Blind Christ” and “The Winter” went on play in competition at Venice and San Sebastian respectively; “Don’t Swallow My Heart, Alligator Girl!” was selected for Sundance.

Running March 23-24, Films in Progress will host four films from women directors and five debuts. That said, some titles are already currying expectation given the pedigree of their producers.
