The film was presented at the MIA Film Co-Production Market 2019.

Sorcery stars Rosa, a young girl willing to do anything to save her father. The film, produced by Fabula, Match Factory Productions and Pimienta Film in association with Bord Cadre Films and Sovereing Films, participated in the MIA 2020 Film Co-Production Market & Pitching Forum.

Both works participate in the World Cinema Dramatic Competition category along with 10 other films.
