Spanish region to showcase pix

Fest to run Sept. 16 - 17

MADRID — The cream of pics from one of Spain’s most vibrant filmmaking regions will be on display at Galicia Terra de Cine (literally Galicia Land of Cinema), a new film showcase running Sept. 16-17 in the Galician capital of Santiago de Compostela in northwest Spain.

Event is organized by the Galicia Audiovisual Consortium.

Despite the region’s traditionally rural economy, the 1999 Galician Audiovisual Law has seen the local film business grow and prosper, with production houses co-financing films that have snagged prizes at Sundance (“Live-In Maid”) and an Oscar (“The Sea Inside”).

Galicia is also Spain’s principal production hub for animated features and has courted private and public finance for pics and corporate investment in film companies.

Production levels run at 15 features, 12 TV movies and 20 documentaries annually.
