Spain In Berlin – Biz As Usual

Travel plans for Spanish distributors this year will pretty well follow the usual pattern, with the big distribs planning to attend the American Film Market and smaller arthouse buyers set to wing into Berlin.

Berlin is essentially considered to be a fest and market for art fare (meaning, in Spain, pics released with Spanish subtitles instead of Spanish dubbing), and such buyers as Enrique Gonzalez Macho of Alta Films, Francisco Hoyos of Surffilms and Javier de Garcillan of Musidora will be making the rounds to scope out product.

Also in attendance will be reps of the Spanish Culture Ministry and the official Catalan group, Catalan Films. Both will have stands in the market, as in previous years, to promote rather than sell Spanish films.

The Catalans don’t have a film in any of the official sections, though Paul Leduc’s “Latino Bar,” set for the Panorama side bar, was co-produced by Barcelona-based Opalo Films along with Venezuelan and Cuban firms. Shot in Venezuela, item is a love-adventure pic toplining Dolores Pedro and Roberto Sosa.

The second Spanish pic for the Panorama section is “Doblones De A Ocho” (Pieces Of Eight), produced and directed by newcomer Andrews Linares.

Chosen as the competing entry from Spain is “Amantes” (Lovers), produced by Pedro Costa and helmed by veteran Vicente Aranda.
