San Sebastian to pay tribute to Borzage

Fest aims to introduce helmer to wider auds, director sez

MADRID — The San Sebastian Intl. Film Festival has set the three sidebar retros for its 49th edition: a tribute to Hollywood meller specialist Frank Borzage (“Seventh Heaven,” 1927; “A Farewell to Arms,” 1932; “Desire,” 1936); panorama “It Happened Yesterday,” featuring films that capture turning points in the 20th century; and an homage to France-based, Georgian director Otar Ioseliani (“Favorites of the Moon,” 1984; “Farewell, Home Sweet Home,” 1999).

“Sometimes our aim with our tribute to a director who is still making films is to introduce him to wider audiences,” new festival director Mikel Olaciregui says.

The festival also will introduce a 6,000 euros ($5,340) prize for the best Latin American film without a Spanish release in its “Made in Spanish” panorama.

Fest will run Sept. 20-29.
