CELEBRATE 20 YEARS OF THE SPANISH FILM FESTIVAL!
The Spanish Film Festival returns to Cinema Paradiso from Thursday 27 April to Wednesday 17 May with a specially selected program of films and events celebrating all things Spanish to mark its 20th edition.
The festival will kick off with the sexy and daring Spanish box office hit KIKI, LOVE TO LOVE (KIKI, EL AMOR SE HACE). The third film from director Paco León, this hilarious and complex comedy explores love, sex and marriage through five interwoven stories taking place over a long hot summer in Madrid. With León’s work drawing parallels from critics to that of acclaimed Spanish auteur Pedro Almodóvar – this is a colourful and fun opening night film will be followed by a party, catering and dancing in each city.

The festival will also feature the Australian premiere of SUMMER 1993, the breakout critical discovery of the recent 2017 Berlinale, where it was named Best First Feature, along with a special event screening of THE QUEEN OF SPAIN, the lavish sequel to The Girl of Your Dreams (1998) starring Penelope Cruz.
The festival will close with THE TRIP TO SPAIN, the third chapter of THE TRIP, which sees funnymen Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon continue with semi-fictional, spouse-free raconteurial ramblings and a tour of some of the best restaurant in Spain for the UK's Observer.
This year, we are also delighted to present two schools screenings - OZZY and ZIP & ZAP AND THE CAPTAIN'S ISLAND. For further information on school bookings email firstname.lastname@example.org
