FILM | The London Spanish Film Festival . 28 Sep – 10 Oct

London Spanish Film Festival

The London Spanish Film Festival launches its 8th edition (28 September – 10 October) with an extraordinary line-up of recent Spanish films, most of them UK premières and a unique opportunity to view them in London. From engaging thrillers to exhilarating comedies, from moving dramas and action movies to documentaries and shorts, this selection will demonstrate the compelling variety of Spanish cinema in all its richness. As in previous festivals, some of the films will be presented by their directors and actors. Coming from all corners of Spain they will be available to answer questions from the public.

Luis Tosar, one of Spain’s most outstanding actors, will be the subject of our special feature and he’ll join us for a special on-stage interview. We are also delighted to include in our programme an examination of the acting registers promoted by Pedro Almodóvar. For this we’ll have a small selection of his films introduced by their actors and we’ll be speaking with them in the Institut Français’s library.

Finally, this year we are also introducing “a treasure from the archives”, a chance in our programme to re-discover forgotten gems from Spanish cinema. BOOK TICKETS TO ALL SCREENINGS HERE
