San Sebastian honors Mann

Anthony Mann tribute runs alongside retro of world's most notorious helmers

MADRID — The 52nd San Sebastian Intl. Film Festival will honour helmer Anthony Mann with a major retrospective of his films. A second retro, “Incorrect,” will feature films from the film world’s most notorious bad boys, at least for the conservative-minded, including pics from Michael Moore, John Waters, Todd Solondz, Austrian Ulrich Seidl, and Spain’s own Luis Bunuel and Pedro Almodovar.

While best known for his westerns – “Winchester ’73,” “The Tin Star,” – the San Sebastian festival organization justify their selection of Mann for a trib arguing that “he was outstanding in all classic genres – thrillers, musical comedies, war films and historical films. Yet his masterpieces are ignored by the general public. The retrospective will allow audiences to discover a complex, personal director.”

Fest has also confirmed its major and non traditional sections for this year: an official Competition; a major Zabaltegi sidebar split between a Festival Top subsection profiling the cream of films from other festivals and a New Directors focus; a Horizontes Latinos panorama screening Latin American pics yet to be released in Spain, a Made in Spain look at recent Spanish productions and a Films in Progress showcase for unfinished Latin American productions seeking completion finance.

The producer and director of the best first or second pic in any festival section will receive the Altadis-New Directors cash prize, worth E90,000 ($108,000) this year.

Turner Classic Movies offer a $36,000 TCM Audience Award to the most voted film in the Festivals’ Top section of Zabaltegi.

Fest will run Sept. 17-25.
