Honoured by the Spanish Government in 2009 as the most important Spanish cultural event in Australia, The Spanish Film Festival is back for its 13 contemporary Spanish language films from Spain and Latin America will be winging their way to Australia to work their Spanish storytelling magic for a wide variety of audiences in Sydney, Melbourne, Canberra, Brisbane and Adelaide in May 2010 in the form of features, shorts and documentaries. In 2010 the Spanish Film Festival builds on the diverse program of screenings and events that has become its strong trademark. The programme includes:
All About Women. A programming first for any Spanish Film Festival, the special All About Women section will screen a selection of films directed by Spanish and Latin American women who have had a significant impact on Spanish cinema AND will look at the various and diverse portrayals of women in Spanish cinema from the 50’s to the present, expanding upon the iconic image of the strong, determined, sexy Spanish woman.
The 13th Spanish Film Festival produced with the support of the Ministries of Culture and Foreign Affairs in Spain, the Spanish Consulate in Sydney and Melbourne, The Spanish Embassy, the Argentinean Government through INCAA (Institute of Cinema and Audiovisual Arts Argentina), Victorian Multicultural Commission, The Embassies and Consulates of Peru, Colombia, Mexico, Uruguay, The Australian National University and many prestigious Spanish and Australian companies.
