October 11-14, 2012
The 18th annual showcase of the new films from Spain took place October 11-14, 2012, at the Egyptian Theatre on the renowned Hollywood Walk of Fame, as the host venue for multiple projections of Spanish filmmakers.
Included in this year's lineup were Spain's official 2013 Best Foreign-Language Oscar entry BLANCANIEVES, Pablo Berger's wildly imaginative reinvention of the Snow White tale starring Maribel Verdu; the 2012 Goya Best Film winner NO REST FOR THE WICKED, a searing neo-noir from director Enrique Urbizu, starring Jose Coronado; Alberto Rodriguez's crime drama UNIT 7 and Fernando Gonzalez Molina's coming-of-age drama and romance I WANT YOU (the sequel to Three Steps Above Heaven, a selection from last year's Recent Spanish Cinema), both starring Spanish star Mario Casas. Also included are Ignacio Ferreras' stunning animated feature WRINKLES, based on Paco Roca’s comic of the same title; THE WILD ONES, an elegant triptych of coming-of-age tales and winner of four awards at the Malaga Spanish Film Festival, and 2011’s much-lauded, multiple-Goya winner, THE SLEEPING VOICE directed by Benito Zambrano, starring Maria Leon and Inma Cuesta.
In this 2012 edition, we have been honored to have the presence of Angela Molina and Pablo Berger, actress and director in BLANCANIEVES, Patricia Ferreira, director in THE WILD ONES and Benito Zambrano, director in THE SLEEPING VOICE.
