The London Spanish Film Festival launches its 12th edition with an extraordinary line-up of recent Spanish films, most of them UK premieres and a unique opportunity to watch them in London. From enigmatic thrillers to fresh comedies, from poetic dramas to international coproductions, documentaries and promising shorts, this year's line-up offers an insight into the compelling variety of Spanish cinema and its artists.

 

We'll open with the much acclaimed La novia, Paula Ortiz's second film, based in Federico García Lorca's classic Bodas de sangre. Our closing film, Endless Night, is Isabel Coixet's international production, which opened last year's Berlin Film Festival, starring Juliette Binoche and Rinko Kikuchi, a superb, intimate portrayal of the relationship between two women belonging to two opposite worlds.

 

We are happy to welcome back Ana Rodríguez Rosell, who comes with her second film, Falling, an international production in which she's worked again with Emma Suárez and the German-Turkish Birol Ünel. The three of them will be on stage to present the film. Another co-production we are happy to present is Fernando León de Aranoa's A Perfect Day, featuring an extraordinary international cast challenged by the Balkans war effects in this comedy-drama.

 

The extraordinary actress Blanca Portillo will join us as well to present Lydia Zimmermann's documentary María conversa and talk with Prof. Maria Delgado about her acting work.

 

We are proud to present a particularly strong Basque Window this year. Veteran Imanol Uribe will present Lejos del mar, a film about the absence and vengeance feelings provoked by an ETA act of terrorism, and Bárbara Goenaga will present Pikadero, by the Scottish, Basque Country-based, Ben Sharrock. Model and actor Jon Kortajarena, not exactly a newcomer to film as his debut was in Tom Ford's A Single Man, will present the short 36 Hours and Acantilado.

 

Our 8th Catalan Window will bring the fresh but solid debut of four film students, Les amigues de l'Àgata, and a drama about the youths who participated in the last big battle of the Spanish Civil War, Ebre, which will be presented by the historian and Hispanist Paul Preston.

 

Last but not least, we are proud to partner with BFI in the presentation of El Sur, Víctor Erice's masterpiece about loss and memory, which is part of Pedro Almodóvar's carte blanche for their full retrospective.
