‘Robin’ among recipients of Spain distrib subsidies

This article was corrected on October 22, 1992. “Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves” received a Spanish subsidy of $ 2,500, not the amount reported in Monday’s paper.

Almost $ 2.5 million was granted by the Spanish culture ministry last week in subsidies for distribution and scripts.

Some $ 1.87 million was awarded to 48 films to aid in the distribution of EC and Spanish pictures.

The amounts for each film range from $ 10,000 to $ 100,000. Titles receiving the maximum amount included Spanish films “High Heels” and “Salsa Rosa ,” as well as “Robin Hood, Prince of Thieves.”

Other recipients for lesser amounts include French production “Madame Bovary, ” German film “Marta and I,” as well as recent Spanish releases “Makinavaja, “”The Long Winter,” and “Orquesta Club Virginia.”

A total of $ 600,000 was also awarded to 30 scripts in progress. Among the awardees are director Pilar Miro for “Don Carlos,” Eduardo Bajo Ulloa for “Mi Corazon,” and Antonio Castro for “La Maria Dolores.”

The above funds are above and beyond the 1992 budget for $ 18 million in advance subsidies, the last $ 4 million of which was also just awarded.
