The Gijón International Film Festival is celebrating its 57th edition from 15-23 November. Once again this year – just another in its lengthy existence – the Asturian city will play host to an interesting selection of cinematic works that, in line with its long-standing editorial policy, combine the youngest and most fresh-faced perspectives with some highly innovative characteristics and decidedly indie recurring styles. Proof of this can perhaps be seen in the opening film. The festival has chosen to fire the starting pistol for its programme with the first two episodes of El vecino, the series directed by Nacho Vigalondo and written by Carlos de Pando and Sara Antuña. This adaptation of the comic of the same name by Santiago García and Pepo Pérez stars Quim Gutiérrez and Clara Lago, and was made for Netflix (see the news).

Besides all this, the festival, which is once again training the spotlight on younger viewers with its Enfants Terribles section, is organising retrospectives of a number of unique filmmakers, such as the great Franco Piavoli, the intriguing Axelle Ropert, fledgling directors Stefan Ivančić and Elena López Riera, who up to now have only worked on short films, and audiovisual artist María Cañas.
