2019 Spanish Film Festival

24 April – 15 May, Palace Cinema Paradiso


The 2019 Spanish Film Festival presented by Palace welcomes Moro Olive Oil as principal partner for the national festival, which celebrates cinema from Spain and Latin America.

The 22nd edition of the festival will be further enriched by the Cine Latino Film Festival sidebar, formerly a separate event in November.

Opening the festival around Australia will be the Best Film winner at the Goya Awards (Spanish Oscars) Champions (Campeones). This critically-acclaimed film smashed box office records in Spain and stars Javier Gutiérrez as Marco, an ambitious and arrogant basketball coach forced to train a team of people with disabilities.

Other films to watch out for:
The Good Girls: This gorgeously mounted and beautifully played feature is at once a scathing and glamourous depiction of the wives of upper-class men in 1982 Mexico.
Super Crazy: This Argentinian comedy boasts a lead performance bursting with energy and charisma from Natalia Oreiro as a woman who takes a remedy that makes her unable to stop speaking her mind.
The Days To Come: Catalan Goya Award-winning director Carlos Marqués-Marcet expertly captures the complicated experiences of a new couple grappling with parenthood.
Petra: Cannes regular Jamie Rosales returns with a complex, stunningly shot melodrama that mixes themes of parental responsibility, artistic authorship, sexual intrigue and revenge.
