Película: 10th Spanish Film Festival in the Philippines



As Instituto Cervantes’ Película Spanish Film Festival turns 10 this October,  it promises to be stage the biggest and best showcase of Spanish movies in the Philippines.  Check this article for schedule and screening times.

Multi-awarded films like Primos (Cousins), Yo, Tambien (Me, Too), and the Javier Bardem starrer Biutiful make their Philippine premier at the film festival.

Other films include: the period drama Lope, a story chronicling the life of Spanish playwright Lope de Vega; Bigas Luna’s Didi Hollywood about an aspiring actress who decides to move to Miami to try her luck in the Latino world; and the 2010 Spanish thriller film directed by Rodrigo Cortés, Buried, which follows the story of a US contractor (Ryan Reynolds) who wakes up finding himself buried alive inside a coffin.

There will also be a number of fun and light-hearted films for the audience to enjoy as well as movies from the Latin American community like Argentina, Chile, Mexico, and Uruguay, all presenting a wide range of perspectives and styles.

Another highlight in the film festival is the “Diez años de Película (10 Years of Película),” a special cycle of all audience choice winners of previous Película instalments from 2004 to 2010, featuring films like Alejandro Amenábar’s Mar Adentro, Isabel Coixet’s La vida secreta de las palabras (The Secret Life of Words), or Nacho Vellila’s comedy Fuera de carta.
