Seville to screen Thomas’ favorites

U.K. producer to program festival sidebar

SAN SEBASTIAN, Spain — Jeremy Thomas, producer of films by Bernardo Bertolucci (“The Last Emperor”), David Cronenberg (“Crash”) and Terry Gilliam (“The Man Who Killed Don Quixote”), will program a 10-pic British retrospective, Jeremy Thomas’ Favorite Classics, at November’s 6th Seville European Film Festival.

Director Nicolas Roeg (“Performance,” “Don’t Look Now”) will be the subject of a retrospective and preside over Seville’s jury.

Roeg and Thomas are part of the British film industry’s large presence at Seville, one of Europe’s fast-emerging film meets, now in its second year under director Javier Martin Dominguez.

Seville’s main focus, beyond its Competition, will be “The New Brits,” an 11-film showcase illustrating latest trends from new U.K. filmmakers, Martin Dominguez announced at San Sebastian Monday.

Lineup includes Cannes Competition player “Fish Tank” from Andrea Arnold, Shane Meadows “Le Donk & Scor-Zay-Zee,” Paul King’s road movie “Bunny and the Bull,” with Spanish actress Veronica Echegui, Armando Iannucci’s well-reviewed political satire “In the Loop” and Locarno Golden Leopard winner “She a Chinese” from U.K.-based writer-director Xiaolu Guo.

Amanda Nevill, director of the British Film Institute, will receive an honorary award, while the U.K. Film Council will organize a co-production forum between British and Spanish producers.

Spanish helmer Fernando Trueba, whose “The Dancer and the Thief” world preemed Saturday at San Sebastian, will be the subject of a film cycle, featuring some of his lesser-known films.

Seville will also screen Maurizio Scaparro’s “L’ultimo Pulcinella,” from a screenplay by the hugely influential Spanish screenwriter Rafael Azcona, who died in 2008.
