Prodecine 6 was a Brazilian public co-production fund with Latin American countries that was launched in 2015 and remained opened until 2018 and selected and funded 31 feature films in which Brazil was the minority co-producer. This work researches the historical and political background of the creation of this fund, from the beginning of international co-production as industry practice, passing through the liberalization scenario of the 1980s, in which the Latin American Co-production agreement was created, until the adoption of a South-South policy in the diplomatic, economic and cultural scenarios developed under the federal government ruled by the Partido dos Trabalhadores (PT) between 2003 and 2016 in Brazil. Furthermore, this research presents the main objectives of ANCINE - the Brazilian national film Agency - in the creation of this fund, and the results that can be obtained by the present date.
