A section entitled Once Upon a Time in Spain will explore Spain’s rich cinematic history through three strands: a retrospective celebration of modern Spanish cinema, a retrospective selection of cult Spanish cinema, and an in-depth celebration of the work of legendary Spanish writer-actor-filmmaker Icíar Bollaín.

The festival also boasts several other sidebars: American Dreams, Documentaries, Phenomenal Women, Night Moves, Cinecuisine, 4 Views of Scotland, Cage-a-Rama 3D, The Features of Agnès, Animation, Black Box and Shorts.

Away from the screen, the “In Person” events include director Danny Boyle, actor-producer Jack Lowden, documentary filmmaker Nick Broomfield, and Scottish writer-director-actor Pollyanna McIntosh. There will also be a special In Person discussion that will see award-winning film producer Rebecca O’Brien in conversation with Icíar Bollaín.
