The Spanish Film Festival opens with the dance-floor comedy The Tribe, starring Paco León and Carmen Machi, following a “streetdancing” cleaning lady reunited with her long-lost son. Other highlights include No Filter, starring 2013 Festival Guest Maribel Verdú, It’s For Your Own Good starring Javier Cámara (beloved from Truman, SFF16) and the genre-hopping Abracadabra from the director of Blancanieves (Snow White 2012). The iconoclastic film director Bigas Luna, best known for launching the careers of Penélope Cruz and Javier Bardem will receive a four film tribute this year, including a special Jamón Jamón event in selected cities. The festival continues its celebration of visionary directors with Reel Directoras featuring four contemporary Spanish films all helmed by women. Closing the festival is Mexican great Guillermo del Toro’s Pan’s Labyrinth, to honour his recent Academy Awards sweep.
