Gina Rubiano explores the festival’s highlights of the two key programme strands: New Spanish Cinema and Cine Latino. Gina talks about Spanish and Latin American co-productions that have boosted Spanish speaking cinema, increasing the interest for Spanish speaking films on a global scale.

The festival opens with Javier Fesser’s critically acclaimed Goya Award-winning box office smash hit Champions (Campeones), and closes with a digital restoration of the firecracker comedy Women on the verge of a nervous breakdown (Mujeres al borde de un ataque de nervios), directed by leading Spanish auteur, Pedro Almodóvar, to celebrate the film’s 30th Anniversary.
