Filmax will bring to NATPE Miami its flagship product for the market, the documentary “The Miramar Murders: The State vs. Pablo Ibar ”, which covers the 25 years of judicial odyssey that brought Hispanic-American Pablo Ibar to death row for a triple homicide case in Miami. The miniseries, which consists of six chapters of 55 minutes each, is an international story, a Latin story and quite possibly the best true-crime ever made in Spain. A product of great appeal due to its multiple layers, suspense and constant twists, which has been created thanks to the privileged access to all the people involved in the case and an incredible amount of graphic material. "The Miramar Murders: The State vs. Pablo Ibar ”premiered on HBO Spain on December 4.

In turn, Filmax also has another documentary on its slate, “Mr. Hand Solo ”, based on the incredible story of self-improvement by David Aguilar, a teenager with Poland syndrome whose passion for Lego has led him to build his own prosthetics. In this way, the company strongly enters the world of documentaries, which until now had not had a leading role in its catalog.

Another strong point will be in the animated series section, with the series "Turu & The Wackies", the spin-off of the successful feature film "Turu, The Wacky Hen", and the presentation of "Trokers", a new project developed by Filmax animation studio, located in Galicia, Spain, and from which buyers will be able to enjoy a first teaser during the market.

In the fiction series section you will find Filmax's most ambitious project today: the serial adaptation of “The Nameless", a film that was the company's first international success and made Jaume Balagueró known as one of the most important European genre directors ('Darkness, the saga', '[REC]', etc.). The project will combine Balagueró's talent with the experience of Filmax's television production company, led by Pau Freixas and author of international hits such as “The Red Band Society”. Although it is currently in development, buyers will have a bible and the pilot script available during NATPE.

In this section, the aforementioned "The Red Band Society", of which second sales are already being made in several territories once the initial distribution agreements have expired, and "Welcome To The Family", which is also beginning to be sold to second windows after its premiere on Netflix.

Finally, and as buyers have come to expect, Filmax will also be bringing some of the most recent hits of Spanish cinema to the NATPE market. Titles such as “If I Were a Rich Man”, “I Can Quit Whever I Want”, “The Europeans”, “The Plan & The Innocence” stand out within the company's large and varied film catalogue and it is expected that several package-deals will be closed with platforms and TV stations in Latin and North America during the market.
