15th Spanish Film Festival
The 2012 Spanish Film Festival, presented by Estrella Damm, returns to Australia in July, warming your winter with its 15th birthday celebrations!
For its 15th year, the festival will once again travel to Palace Cinemas in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Adelaide and Perth, screening a rich programme of contemporary Spanish language cinema 4 – 26 July.
Festival Director Natalia Ortiz has lovingly selected the 2012 programme of films from prestigious festivals around the world. 15th anniversary festival highlights include:
AS LUCK WOULD HAVE IT (La chispa de la vida) starring the captivating Salma Hayek – from the 2012 Berlinale and days ago named the jewel of the Tribeca Film Festival by Indiewire - about an out-of-work publicist who suffers an accident and plans to sell the exclusive interview rights to the highest bidder in an attempt to provide for his family; insomnia-provoking thriller SLEEP TIGHT (Mientras duermes) starring a pitch-perfect Luis Tosar (Cell 211) as an apartment block concierge in Barcelona who turns on the inhabitants after dark; and the endearing drama CHINESE TAKE AWAY (Cuento chino), set in Buenos Aires and starring celebrated Argentinean actor Ricardo Darín (The Secret in Their Eyes) as a solitary man compelled to take in a Chinese lodger.
The 15th Spanish Film Festival is presented by Estrella Damm and produced with the support of the Ministries of Culture and Foreign Affairs in Spain, the ICAA (Institute of Cinema and Audiovisual Arts) the Spanish Consulate in Sydney and Melbourne, The Spanish Embassy, SBS TV and Radio, World Movies, Singapore Airlines and many prestigious Spanish and Australian companies.
