It marks the fourth visit to Zff for Stone, who was previously the subject of a tribute strand and most recently screened his film Savages as the festival’s opening night gala in 2012.

Jury of three to award $22,000 prize in the “open zone” strand.

The 64th San Sebastian Film Festival (Sept 16-24) is to make its Zabaltegi strand competitive and has changed the name of the section to Zabaltegi - Tabakalera.

At the upcoming edition, films will compete for the Zabaltegi - Tabakalera Award and a €20,000 ($22,000) prize, of which €6,000 ($6,600) will go to the director of the winning film and the remaining €14,000 ($15,000) to the distributor of the film in Spain.

The winner will be decided by a jury of at least three professionals from the world of film and culture.

The competition has been established following a pact between the festival and the Tabakalera - International Centre for Contemporary Culture.

The previously non-competitive strand was considered an “open zone” for a variety of films, documentaries, shorts and television - “works with no limitations as regards format or subject matter”.

Zabaltegi has included works by Alexander Sokurov, Laurie Anderson, [link »
