Developed as an initiative of EGEDA, Recent Cinema from Spain has been established to create a new event for promoting Spanish cinema in the United States and encouraging its circulation to the public-at-large and to the international audiovisual industry.
The series was presented with collaboration from the Olympia Theater, where the films were shown. This theater is a renowned jewel of South Florida Arts and Entertainment facilities, a legendary setting which provided even more magic and glamour to this grand event.
The figures show that the initial objective has been achieved and a brilliant new showcase has been opened for the distribution and promotion of Spanish cinema. In just four days, Recent Cinema from Spain attracted audiences of over 4000 people in 2014, increasing every year the number of followers. During the opening night the US Premiere “The unexpected life” (La vida inesperada) by Fimmaker Jorge Torregrosa and starring Javier Camara and Raul Arevalo was shown, and script-writer Elvira Lindo presented the movie. Also present were filmmaker Javier Ruiz Caldera and actor Martino Rivas with “Theree many weddings” and actor Juan Diego Botto with “ismael”. They presented their films and participated in Q&A sessions with audiences after the screenings.
The fourth edition of the Recent Cinema from Spain film series has received a warm welcome from the Miami public. Viewers flocked to the Olympia Theater to enjoy the most recent Spanish cinema. The selection of films shown at this event, all of which were released in 2013 and 2014, was much appreciated by both audiences and critics.
