Vancouver, February 22-28, 2013

In its fifth consecutive year, the Festival of New Spanish Cinema consolidates itself as the most important itinerant festival of contemporary Spanish Cinema in North America. The Festival, which will take place at the Vancity Theatre in Vancouver from February 22 to 28 2013 is copresented by PRAGDA and the Embassy of Spain in Ottawa. It  will screen some of the riskiest and most innovative Spanish films of the year.

Selected films include  Madrid, 1987 (2011), a sensual and intelligent encounter by two very different generations directed by David Trueba; Wilaya (2011), a window into the lives of a Sahrawi family living in a Saharan refugee camp directed by Pedro Perez Rosado; The Double Steps (Los Pasos Dobles, 2011), Isaki Lacuesta’s gorgeously shot award-winning film; Sleep Tight (Mientras Duermes, 2011), the latest fright by mastermind of suspense Jaume Balagueró,  and Blancanieves (2012), this tribute to silent film is a brilliant retake of the Grimm fairy tale propelled by Flamenco rhythms that has multiple nominations for the 2013 Goya Awards.
