The Festival of New Spanish Cinema has established itself as an exciting and authoritative showcase for the best contemporary Spanish films across North America. For the second year, Vancity Theatre will host this series of films in Vancouver from February 22 to 28.

Co-presented by VIFF, Iberoamerican Images, PRAGDA, and the Embassy of Spain in Ottawa, the 2013 Festival includes some of the riskiest and most original movies of the year.

The festival line-up will include:
Madrid, a sensual and intelligent encounter between two very different generations, directed by David Trueba
Wilaya, a window into the lives of a Sahrawi family living in a Saharan refugee camp, directed by Pedro Perez Rosado
The Double Steps (Los Pasos Dobles), Isaki Lacuesta’s beautifully shot award-winning film
Sleep Tight (Mientras Duermes), the latest chiller by mastermind of suspense Jaume Balagueró
– Opening Gala presentation Blancanieves, Pablo Berger’s tribute to silent film – a brilliant retelling of Snow White, propelled by Flamenco rhythms

Blancanieves has received multiple nominations for the 2013 Goya Awards and was Spain’s entry for the Best Foreign Language Film at this year’s American Academy Awards.
