Gijon fest fetes three helmers

Watkins, Pummell, Tsai to receive tributes

Spain’s Gijon Intl. Film Festival will feature tributes to Brits Peter Watkins (“The War Game”) and Simon Pummell (“Bodysong’) and Malaysia’s Tsai Ming-Liang (“The River”) at the 42nd edition, which will run Nov. 25-Dec. 3.

Its major retro, the New Barbarians, will trace the growth of American indie cinema from the 1950s to the ’90s, with Monte Hellman in attendance for an exhibition of his photos.

Set on Spain’s northern coast, Gijon also is pumping up its second competitive strand beyond its competition: the Enfants Terribles Section. Past editions featured “Buddy,” ‘Evil,” “Siempre quise ser una santa” and “Les enfants de la pluie.”

Gijon also will profile French animation schools.

The fest has boasted a large increase in auds in the past decade. It offers E52,000 ($63,000) in cash prizes.
