Filmax Brings ‘Selftape’ Series to Content Americas (EXCLUSIVE)

Barcelona-based indie studio Filmax is hailing into Content Americas selling the semi-autobiographical series “Selftape,” made by members of a new generation of

women TV writers and directors now building in Spain. Described as fiction with autobiographical overtones, the series revolves around the real-life Spanish actresses

and sisters, Joana Vilapuig and Mireia Vilapuig who, in a personal touch, found fame as teen actresses  in “The Red Band Society,” one of Filmax’s most successful TV productions

ever. A decade on, now 27 and 25, they are now figuring out how to move their careers forward and trying to find their place in the film-TV industry and life in a present which is

far from certain. That sums up the malaise of much of their generation.More from VarietyFilmax Takes Patricia Ortega's Sundance Premiere 'Mamacruz' for International Sales
