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.

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 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.
