Spain’s Gijon fest to fete Solondz, Denis

Both helmers are skedded to attend 43rd edition

Spain’s Gijon Intl. Film Festival will fete Todd Solondz (“Palindromes”) and French helmer Claire Denis (“The Intruder,” “Good Work.”) with complete career tributes.

None of Denis’ films have had a commercial theatrical release in Spain.

Both will attend the festival, director Jose Luis Cienfuegos said at Cannes. Its 43rd edition runs Nov. 24 to Dec. 2.

Continuing its series of major “new wave” sidebars, Gijon will screen the New Italian Cinema, featuring Italian films from the 1960s.

Titles confirmed for the competitive Enfants Terribles section include “Bullet Boy,” “Popular Music,” and “The Education of Shelby Knox.”

Specializing in edgy indie fare, and attracting indie distribution houses such as Wanda, Karma and Golem, Gijon has grown rapidly over the last decade from 12,000 admissions and three screens in 1995, the first under Cienfuegos, to 65,000 tix sold and eight screens in 2004.
