While it could easily rain on one of the days when the Seminci is unspooling – between 24 and 31 October – in Valladolid, a flurry of snowflakes is not overly likely, as opposed to what Isabel Coixet suggests could happen in the titular Mediterranean tourist hotspot in It Snows in Benidorm [+lire aussi :

. Indeed, this, her new film, will have the honour of opening the storied Valladolid International Film Festival this Saturday. The lucky recipient of the recent 2020 National Film Award will present her movie – which was produced by the Almodóvar brothers’ El Deseo outfit, and which stars Timothy Spall, Sarita Choudhury, Carmen Machi and Ana Torrent – in the Calderón Theatre at an edition of the festival that, as is increasingly becoming the norm for this type of event, will go hybrid. It will thus unspool in a physical, on-site format as well as online (a selection of some of the 150 titles that the festival has picked will be watchable on the Filmin platform, while press conferences, master classes and meetings with industry professionals will be rebroadcast live via the Canal Seminci channel).

This year, the event’s patron will be actor Javier Gutiérrez, who is also involved, as the narrator, in the documentary El tiempo robado. Tomás Salvador González, which is taking part in the Time of History section, out of competition. Tribute will be paid to Valladolid-born author Miguel Delibes, in celebration of his 100th birthday, and two of his favourite features will be screened to mark the occasion: Mon Oncle by Jacques Tati and A Streetcar Named Desire by Elia Kazan. Over the coming days, a number of other important names in Spanish cinema – filmmakers Gracia Querejeta and Julio Medem, and actors Javier Cámara, Charo López and María Galiana – will receive the Honorary Spike at the 65th Seminci (a trophy that Coixet will also pick up).

As well as leaving room for first-time directors in its Meeting Point strand, the festival, which will draw to a close on 31 October with a showing of the French comedy The Big Hit by Emmanuel Courcol, will screen a slew of titles in its Official Section that will be duking it out for the Golden Spike: Preparations to Be Together for an Unknown Period of Time [+lire aussi :
