Festival of New Cinema from Spain Series Pass
The success of Spain at this years Oscar awards serves as confirmation of the complexity and uniqueness of the Spanish artistic scene. Though characterized by the enthralling, the daring, and the unprecedented, Spanish cinema has taken many different directions. Exploring the riskiest visions, Spanish filmmakers have taken their place internationally, not only with renowned actors such as this years Oscar awardwinning Javier Bardem, but with professionals behind the camera working on successful features like Pans Labyrinth and The Orphanage.
Year after year, Spain offers new fearless and passionate auteurs debuting feature films, including Flix Viscarret, Albert Serra, and Rafa Corts. Festival of New Cinema from Spain brings them together, along with established directors such as Iciar Bollain, Carles Bosch, Gracia Querejeta, Jos Luis Guerin and Jaime Rosales. Their new films explore diverse storytelling, genre and subjects, and with their previous features form an enriching and impressive body of work.
A sampling of new short films, ShortMetraje includes the works of those who managed to find alternative ways of expression without relinquishing their message. Keep an eye out for young talents such as the promising Eduardo Chapero Jackson.
In a firstrate ensemble of vibrant, polemical, artful and eclectic films, NWFF is happy to offer Seattle audiences a variety of Spanish styles that range from drama to comedy, to experimentation.
