Screenings to take place on Canary Islands

SAN SEBASTIAN — The second edition of the Spanish Film Screenings for Europe, a mini-mart for local pics, will run Nov. 29-Dec. 1.

Aimed at international buyers and film writers and supported by all of Spain’s major sales agents, the Screenings will take place, as last year, on the volcanic island of Lanzarote, the Canary Islands.

This year, however, Screenings organizers will invite buyers and foreign distributors not only from Europe but from the U.S. and Japan as well.

Some 50 to 60 are expected to attend, announced Screenings director Teodoro Rios at the San Sebastian Intl. Film Festival.

Boosting networking opportunities, unspoolings will be centralized at the mart’s central hotel using DVD support. The three gala screenings will still take place at the Los Jameos del Agua Auditorium, a spectacular, soundproofed cavern.

“The Screenings were very useful for networking and to have more quality time with buyers. Centralizing events will make them more effective,” said Antonia Nava, head of sales at Filmax, whose “Nameless” proved the standout at the 1999 Screenings.
