The 2019 Spanish Film Festival features a representative selection of films from 2018 and 2019 that will give Canadian audiences a taste of all the creativity, history, and talent of today’s Spanish cinema.

The Embassy of Spain in collaboration with Globe Cinema, the European Cultural Society of Calgary and the Aula Cervantes, presents for the first time a festival of new films from Spain that do not have commercial distribution in Canada. Included are award winners and box-office champions. These four Calgary premieres are prime examples of the quality and vitality of film production in Spain today. Come and join us in celebrating Spanish film creativity!

From October 8-31, 2019, Ottawa, Toronto with the addition of Calgary this year for the first time, will host thoughtful, funny and provocative movies –all of them premiering in the cities where they will be screened.

In this edition, El reino (The realm) – the first of many highlights – is a film that was featured at TIFF 2018. This thriller about political corruption was one of the stars at the 2019 Spanish Film Academy Goya Awards. Campeones (Champions) was one of the biggest box-office successes in Spain last year, and winner of the Goya for Best Film. Audiences will also have the opportunity to enjoy the self-consciousness of growing up when watching La Banda (Love Beats) and Viaje al cuarto de una madre (Journey to a Mother’s Room). Besides, the comedies ¿Qué te juegas? (Get her… If you can) and Yo, mi mujer y mi mujer muerta (Me, myself and my dead wife) might just make you smile or even laugh out loud.

4 Nominations at the 2019 Goya Awards.
