Il XV Festival del Cinema Europeo di Siviglia: più e meglio
La ciudad oculta di Víctor Moreno

Questo articolo è disponibile in inglese.

Between 9 and 17 November, Seville will play host to the 15th edition of its European Film Festival, headed up once again by José Luis Cienfuegos. What’s more, on this occasion it will do so with particular enthusiasm, vigour and excitement, as barely one month later, on 15 December, the very same Andalusian city will get dressed up to the nines to host the awards ceremony for the 31st edition of the prizes handed out by the European Film Academy (the nominations for which will be revealed on 10 November at this very festival). Therefore, this year’s gathering will be particularly special, with a wide variety of screenings, activities and meetings that will push the schedules to breaking point.

Cienfuegos pointed out, “This edition is more radical and political than ever – so much so that many European filmmakers want to make the journey to Seville with their movies, as it’s a place where we expect participation, debate and discussion.” A total of 200 films – 35 of which will be world premieres – make up the more than 400 screenings on the festival’s programme. The event will welcome, among countless others, filmmakers of the likes of Roy Andersson, Ildikó Enyedi and Ula Stöckl, who will receive some well-deserved tributes and retrospectives.
