Lanzarote has new winter home

Film event takes advantage of AFM move

The Lanzarote Spanish Film Screenings has moved the dates for its sixth edition to Feb. 24-26 and enlarged its name to the Lanzarote Winter Spanish Film Screenings.

“Winter” is somewhat ironic: The volcanic isle of Lanzarote in Spain’s southernmost Canary Islands enjoys radiant sunshine in February.

The first five editions of the Screenings, a three-day showcase of recent Spanish film production, took place in early December.

Per Screenings director Teodoro Rios, the date change, which takes advantage of the move by the American Film Market to an exclusively fall berth, will allow the Screenings to tap a wider selection of Spanish films, including more premieres, given the increased number of completed films at that time of the year.

The Screenings also should be able to access films from the recent Berlin Film Fest, he added.

Inviting some 70 buyers from all over the world, the Screenings will again take place at the seaside Gran Hotel Melia Salinas, a retreat used by Spain’s new prime minister, Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero.
