Cantinflas,’ ‘Gueros,’ ‘Behavior’ Play Lleida Fest

10 April 2015 1:27 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Sebastian del Amo’s “Cantinflas,” Alonso Ruizpalacios’ “Gueros” and Ernesto Daranas’ “Behavior” feature in the competition at the 21st Lleida Catalonia Latin American Film Festival, which runs April 10-17.

Lleida, alongside Andalucia’s Huelva film fest, represents the biggest showcase of Latin American pics in Spain. Fest’s official selection comprises ten films in competition.

Argentine cinema, with five titles, dominate the official selection’s list, as Argentine films score frequent distribution runs in Spain. Though the main part screen in a small number of theaters, some of them generate solid box office.

Six of the feature films vying for honors arefrom first-time directors, hinting at a seemingly bottomless Latin American new talent pool.

Standout titles in the official selection from the ever building Latin American film industry includes Oscar Jaenada-starrer “Cantiflas,” Mexico’s Oscar entry, which, distributed by Pantelion, became 2014’s second-highest-grossing foreign-language film in the U.S. »
