Once again and for the 11th year, the London Spanish Film Festival returns with a selection of some of the best recent films from Spain including feature films as well as documentaries and shorts. This year some of the feature films will be in competition and the winner will be decided by a Jury. We feel very honoured that the following Arts, Letters and Film professionals have accepted to be part of our Jury: Art Curator Andrew Dempsey, Vanity Fair's journalist Bridget Arsenault, Frank Mannion and actors Nickolas Grace and Charles Dance.
Filmmakers and actors from nearly all corners of Spain will come to present their work and bring to the screenings some extra background and insight.
We are very happy to welcome filmmaker Isabel Coixet with one of her latest films, Learning to Drive. The Catalan filmmaker, who knows no frontiers and works in several countries and languages will be on stage talking about her career with Prof. Maria Delgado on Sunday 27 September.
As usual, the Festival will take place at Ciné Lumière in South Kensington but this year we are also going to be at the recently opened Regent Street Cinema, a cinema full of history at the very heart of London.
We hope you will enjoy our selection and all the events of our 11th edition!
