Edinburgh Spanish Film Festival 2020

The wonderful Edinburgh Spanish Film Festival is back this October (6th till 25th) with their 7th annual edition. Due, of course, to Covid-19 restrictions, this year will be a unique online experience.

ESFF shares a vibrant and varied programme suited for all ages and tastes: there will be 12 feature films, 5 documentaries, and 7 short films, as well as Q&As and panel discussions with selected filmmakers and actors.

Women Film Directors are the highlight of this year’s edition – focusing on women who observe, participate, and evaluate. Make sure to catch Ojos negros (Ivet Castello and Marta Lallana), The Innocence (Lucía Alimany), and The Invisible (Gracia Querejeta).

They are also hosting CartasVivas – an audio-visual project centring on the voices of 20th century women. As always, ESFF will be showcasing new directors and their debut films: Camilla Urrutia with Gunpowder Heart, Polo Menerguez introducing The Plan, and Guillermo Rojas with Once Again.

The festival will also be opening a window to Latin American cinema, with The Weasel’s Tale by Juan J. Campanella, Spider by Andrés Wood, and Camilla Urrutia’s debut, Gunpowder Heart. In addition, ESFF will include a short film showcase – The Shortest Afternoon – a monologues competition created during the COVID-19 lockdown.

The full programme will be announced soon. Follow the festival on social media (@_esff) to find out more.
