Separate festivals of Spanish, Australian films in March

NEW DELHI: Separate film festivals of acclaimed films from Australia and Spain are to take place in the capital this month which will later be taken to some other cities in the country.

The Spanish film festival, the third to be held here, represents the best in the latest films from that country. It will be held in Delhi from 6 to 10 March and in Thiruvananthapuram from 11 to 15 March.

While all the other Spanish films will be screened at the Indian Habitat Centre, the festival in Delhi will conclude on 10 March in Sirifort Auditorium with the screening of Fados, a film based on the popular musical form of that name. The screening in Delhi will include a conversation with its maker Carlos Saura and renowned film critic Aruna Vasudev. Fados was the closing film at the International Film Festival of India in Goa in November-December 2007.

La Noche De Los Girasoles (The Night of the Sunflowers) by Jorge Sánchez-Cabezudo is the opening film in both Thiruvananthapuram and Delhi.

The other films are El Camino De Los Ingleses (Summer Rain) by Antonio Banderas; Los Dos Lados De La Cama (The Two Sides of the Bed) by Emilio Martínez Lázaro; Salvador by Manuel Huerga; El Laberinto Del Fauno (Pan‘s Labyrinth) by Guillermo del Toro; Vete de mí (Go Away From Me) by Víctor García León; Alatriste by Agustín Díaz Yanes; and Caotica Ana (Chaotic Ana) by Julio Medem.

The film Yo Soy La Juani (My Name is Juani) by Bigas Luna will be screened in Thiruvananthapuram but not in Delhi.

The Spanish film festival has been organised by the Cultural Centre of the Spanish Embassy and Casa India in collaboration with the Directorate of Film Festivals.

Organised by the Australian High Commission in collaboration with the Directorate of Film Festivals, the Australian film festival, Australian Visions, will open in the capital at Sirifort Auditorium on 6 March with Jindabyne by Ray Lawrence. Other films are The Caterpillar Wish by Sandra Sciberras, Three Dollars by Robert Connelly, Swimming Upstream by Russel Mulcahey, Ned Kelly by Gregor Jordan, Dirty Deeds by David Caesar, Somersault by Cate Shortland, La Spagnola by Steve Jacoba, and The Rape in Placid Lake by Tony McNamara.

The festival will later travel to Hyderabad from 8 to 10 March and Bangalore from 14 to 17 March, where some other Australian films will be screened. These are Lantana by Ray Lawrence, Harvie Krumpet, The Tracker by Rolf De Heer, and Australian Rules by Paul Goldman.
