Meet Ana de Armas, the Actress Who's Quickly Rising Through the Hollywood Ranks
Ana de Armas is wasting no time making her mark on Hollywood, and you'd be smart to keep an eye on her.

Get to know a few key facts about Ana before your girl-crush really intensifies. Cuba has her heart. Ana was born and raised in Cuba before she moved to Spain at age 18 in pursuit of her acting career. She's as tough as a bull (kind of). The actress was born on April 30, 1988, making her a Taurus.

This 2012 series will be kicked off with the special opening premiere of the official Spanish Entry for Best Foreign Language Film for the Academy Awards 2013, Blancanieves (Snow White) directed by Pablo Berger and starring Maribel Verdú, Inma Cuesta & Macarena García.

This edition is honored with the attendance of directors Pablo Berger (Blancanieves), Benito Zambrano (The Sleeping Voice) and Patricia Ferreira (The Wild Ones).

Join us for our 18th annual showcase of the wildest, sexiest new films from Spain - on the big screen at the Egyptian Theatre in Hollywood. Included in this year's lineup are the 2012 Goya Best Film winner No Rest For The Wicked, a searing neo-noir from director Enrique Urbizu, starring Jose Coronado; Alberto Rodriguez's crime drama Unit 7 and Fernando Gonzalez Molina's coming of age drama and romance I Want You (the sequel to Three Steps Above Heaven, a selection from last year's Recent Spanish Cinema), both starring Spanish star Mario Casas. Also included are Ignacio Ferreras' stunning animated feature Wrinkles, based on Paco Roca’s comic of the same title; The Wild Ones, an elegant triptych of coming-of-age tales and winner of four awards at the Malaga Spanish Film Festival; and 2011’s much-lauded, multiple-Goya winner The Sleeping Voice, starring Maria Leon, Inma Cuesta, from director Benito Zambrano.
