Historia de lo oculto was one of the most suggestive films presented in 2020 within the Noves Visions section. This black and white feature film narrated the efforts of a television program, which dared to reveal the government's satanic links. Ponce's singular vision returns again with the project La hora de los brujos, selected in Blood Window 2020, to participate in Sitges FanPitch.

The genre feature film project competition is part of an international network of markets, including Blood Window (Ventana Sur, Argentina); Frontières (Fantasy, Canada) and NAFF Project Market (Bucheon International Fantastic Film Festival, South Korea). This circuit allows projects to multiply their co-production and promotion options, by achieving greater international exposure. Throughout the year, those responsible for programming and industry at the Sitges Festival participate in the pitch juries of the aforementioned markets and select projects to be presented at the event.
