The LUX FILM DAYS head to Spain

It is Spain’s turn now! The LUX FILM DAYS head South and will hit three of the most important Spanish film festivals: the Seville European Film Festival, the Gijón Film Festival and the Segovia European Film Showcase (MUCES). Afterwards, they will end their Spanish journey at Barcelona’s Filmoteca de Catalunya and the Lanzarote European Film Showcase.
 
The Seville European Film Festival (November 8-16) is one of the most preeminent film events currently taking place in Spain. Headed by Jose Luis Cienfuegos (member of the selection panel of the LUX Prize), the festival’s 10th edition has already hosted the announcement of the nominees for this year’s European Film Awards – turning The Broken Circle Breakdown into the big favourite. Felix Van Groeningen’s film is screening in Seville’s EFA selection sidebar section, along with Valeria Golino’s Miele. Clio Barnard’s The Selfish Giant is competing for the top prize as part of the festival’s main section.
 
The Gijón Film Festival (November 15-23) will also support the LUX FILM DAYS by screening two of the finalist films within its programme. The Broken Circle Breakdown and Miele will be present at the festival’s Gran Angular and Nuevas Voces sections, respectively.
 
On the other hand, Segovia’s MUCES (November 13-19) will show not only the three finalists but also the other seven titles which form the LUX Prize 2013 official selection (initially unveilled at the latest Karlovy Vary Film Festival): Gabriela Pichler’s Eat Sleep Die, Nana Ekvtimishvili and Simon GroßIn Bloom, Srdan Golubovic’s Circles, Paolo Sorrentino’s La Grande Bellezza, Neus BallúsLa Plaga, Jan Ole Gerster’s Oh Boy and Lukáš Kokeš and Klára Tasovská’s Fortress.
 
The LUX FILM DAYS Spanish screenings will later continue at the Filmoteca de Catalunya (Barcelona, November 21 – December 4) and at the Lanzarote European Film Showcase (December 9-15).
 
In the next weeks the LUX FILM DAYS will also travel to Portugal, Finland, Slovakia and Hungary.
