The 16th Spanish Film Festival Now Showing with Special Delights

The 16th Spanish Film Festival, presented by Estrella Damm, opened last night with a bang when Cesc Gay’s A Gun in Each Hand(Una pistola en cada mano) screened at Palace Centro Cinemas.Audiences were treated to this superbly accomplished battle-of-the-sexes comedy which achieved breakout box office success when it was released in Spain.

Just announced by popular demand, the festival will now also feature a second screening of the film. Screening on Friday June 21 at 7pm at Centro,  A Gun in Each Hand features one of the most star-studded and talented casts assembled in modern Spanish cinema including the phenomenal Ricardo Darín, Luis Tosar, Javier Cámara, Eduardo Noriega, Leonor Watling, Candela Peña and Cayetana Guillén Cuervo, and is definitely a festival must see.

During the festival we will be celebrating with the JAZZ & JEWELS special event another opportunity to party, with drinks courtesy of Estrella Damm and Torres Wines, tapas and live jazz. This will be followed by a special screening of Hold Up! an energetic, crowd-pleasing knockabout heist caper with serious, even tragic, undertones. The filmis based on the bizarre true story of a complicated plan concocted to prevent the wife of Spain's dictator General Franco getting her hands on jewels once owned by Argentina's fabled first lady, Evita.

This year’s closing night event showcases Luis Buñuel’s 1970s classic Tristana, the surrealist masterpiece starring Catherine Deneuve that explores religion, politics and love in a way that marks it as a revolutionary film to this day. The dark, artistic love story will close the festival this year, with a nod to this internationally revered Spanish director who changed the landscape of cinema forever.

In addition to our special events, the festival features 20 other stand out Spanish and Spanish-speaking Latin American titles with many films enjoying their Australian premieres. For more information visit www.spanishfilmfestival.com.au.
