It is that time again. Popcorn, Maltesers, choc-tops and milkshakes because the Spanish Film Festival is about to begin. Actually, considering that, we should all probably be stuffing ourselves with churros whilst guzzling Sangrias. Win win either way to be honest.


As part of their Sydney pit-stop on the Australian tour the Spanish Film Festival will be showing at the Palace Verona and Chauvel Cinemas on Oxford Street in Sydney from 19th June until 3rd July. The opening film will be A Gun in Each Hand by Cesc Gay and features an all-star Spanish cast, exploring themes of middle-aged men and contemporary Spanish gender roles in a witty and engaging way. Closing the festival will be the 1970 classic Tristana, starring Catherine Deneuve as an orphan involved in a dark and complicated love story. Nominated for the 1971 Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film, Tristana is a classic example of old-school Spanish film: dramatic, passionate and filled with steely stares.

The rest of this year’s films include multiple San Sebastian Film Festival winners (the Spanish Oscars) including The Artist and the Model by Oscar winning director Fernando Trueba, which tells the story of artistic inspiration in the French Pyrenees in 1943.
