Seville European Film Festival, which provides E50,000 ($65,000) in cash for the winner’s distribution in Spain. Other movies have also closed down Spanish distribution after selection for Seville. Titles include docs “Draquila — Italy Trembles,” taken by Baditri, and “Jane’s Journey,” picked up by Wanda Films, plus Stephen Frears’ “Tamara Drewe,” which Alta nabbed for Spain, and “The Woman With a Broken Nose,” acquired by Sherlock Films. Apart from “Babylon,” pickups were made before Seville unspooled, allowing distributors to benefit from festival promotion.
