The retrospective "3 comedias +1" is dedicated instead to die-hard comedy and is made up of titles which are by now in the fabric of Spanish cinema itself: "Familia" (1996) Fernando León de Aranoa's Goya winning debut, "Sin vergüenza" (2001), by Joaquín Oristrell, a masterpiece on the actors' world with Verónica Forqué (Almodovar's "Kika"); "El otro lado de la cama" (2002), by Emilio Martínez-Lázaro, with Ernesto Alterio and Paz Vega, and "Días de fútbol" (2003), by David Serrano with Fernando Tejero, winner of the Goya Award for best upcoming actor.
CinemaSpagna also wants to pay tribute to the genius of Luis Buñuel with the special screening of "El ángel Exterminador" (The Exterminating Angel) celebrating the fiftieth anniversary of the 1962 film which won the FIPRESCI award at the Cannes Film Festival. Another tribute also goes to "Simon del desierto" (Simon of the desert), his unfinished 1965 film which won the Silver Lion and the FIPRESCI award at the Venice Film Festival.
The Spanish Film Festival is produced by EXIT media in collaboration with the Spanish Embassy, the Royal Spanish Academy, the Cervantes Institute of Rome, Turespaña, the Ramon Llull institute and the ICAA (Instituto de Cinematografía y de las Artes Audiovisuales). (ANSAmed).
