The Spanish San Sebastian Festival, the highest-profile film event in the Spanish-speaking world, promised to consider Cannes the official selection title for the selection of director Jose Luis Rebardinos and spread five Can Label titles in its own competition, the festival announced. Friday.
These include last week’s Can March two films online two of the biggest selling attractions online: the franchise-weighted “Summer of 85” and Thomas Winterberg’s “Another Round”. Kansas chief Thierry Framax said in his film lineup The Faithful, which was held at this Cannes festival: Naomi Kawas’s “True Mothers” and Sharunas Bartas “Evening” took two more titles.
Overcoming the San Sebastian contest is “Beginning”, the first feature of Georgia’s de Coulombegavili’s one-ear official selection, plus “Any crying baby around?” From Takuma Sato, Japan
“Another Round” and “True Mothers” are already among the first titles reserved for world premieres at the September Toronto Festival announced last Wednesday. “In the evening,” “Beginning” and “Any crying children around?” San Sebastian described it as a world premiere in a press statement on Friday.
The title announcement of the first competition of the Spanish festival includes two titles sold by PlayTime – “Summer 85” and “True Mothers” – as well as Wild Bunch Intel’s “Start” and “In the Evening”, which sold Luxbox – all Paris-based sales outlets. Players in the European film industry have a physical presence of at least a significant number of keys to independence, as the French film industry is betting on converting San Sebastian to site-online / recent summer as a significant enough delay.
Nevertheless, in view of the huge possibility that industry officials will not be able to travel from Latin America, San Sebastian himself has announced an online or hybrid industry agenda and a pruning festival, although there is no other way like Toronto, Canada where only films will be shown on 50 screens.
The reduction takes up to 30% less screening. The festival’s largest industrial event, the Europe-Latin America Co-Production Forum, will go completely online, with tables, master classes and ginmaldia and technology displays for high-tech innovations in film and TV.
The festival will adopt a hybrid of the two pix-in-event events, WIP Latam and WIP Europa, the site and online format. A pre-planned, Hell in the Flower: Korean film of the ’50s and’ 60s: The Golden Age of Korean cinema, came back in 2021.
The main sections of the festival are, of course, down to the official election. The site will welcome listeners, allowing sanitary restrictions.
The 68th San Sebastian Intel Film Festival runs September 18-26.
