Edinburgh Spanish Film Festival to open next month

The 2019 Edinburgh Spanish Film Festival presents a total of 17 feature films and eight short films in Spanish over the months of October and November.

Alongside the Filmhouse and the University of Edinburgh, the festival will take place at the University of Stirling, the University of Strathclyde, the Instituto Cervantes in Manchester, the Belmont Picturehouse in Aberdeen and the Glasgow Film Theatre.

The sixth Edinburgh Spanish Film Festival will be held across Scotland from 3 October until 14 November.

The opening film, The Candidate, directed by Rodrigo Sorogoyen, has been awarded with seven Goya Awards.

The Festival launches an exciting programme that includes the Scottish premiere of Almost 40 (directed by David Trueba), The Candidate and Campeones (funny, tender film about a real Spanish basketball team of people with learning difficulties) as well as the TV Series Madrid on Fire (directed by Paco León) about Ava Gardner’s time living in that city.
