Spanish cinema will be celebrated at the 20th edition of the Transilvania International Film Festival running from July 23-August 1 in Cluj-Napoca (Romania) in its ‘Spain Focus’, a wide-ranging programme of special screenings, talks and masterclasses, industry initiatives and exhibitions. Within the programme is Carte blanche: San Sebastián, a strong selection of 10 recent Spanish films recently curated by the San Sebastián Festival selection committee. Included in the selection is Sentimental (The People Upstairs, Cesc Gay, 2020), Transilvania IFF’s opening night film, to show on the large open-air screen in Cluj-Napoca’s Unirii Square on July 23. Ticktes are on sale on tiff.eventbook.ro.
“The San Sebastian Festival wishes to express its satisfaction at the start of this collaboration with Romania's most important film festival. The Transilvania Festival will be an exceptional showcase for current Spanish cinema through an interesting selection of films, some of which have recently been screened in different sections of our festival. This selection is a reflection of the diversity of Spanish cinema, and pays special attention to young filmmakers who will play a significant role in the future,” says the Director of the San Sebastián Festival, Jose Luis Rebordinos.
