Now in its 15th year, The Spanish Film Festival brings to our shores the best in contemporary cinema from Spain and Latin America.
As always, this year offers something for everyone. There are romantic comedies (The Opposite of Love), dark thrillers (Sleep Tight), tough cop dramas (Unit 7) and even an animation feature (Wrinkles).
One of the highlights is No Rest For The Wicked, which won best film, director and actor at this year's Goyas (the Spanish Oscars). Also screening is the biggest domestic box office opener of all time in Spain, Torrente 4.
The festival starts early July with Salma Hayek starrer As Luck Would Have It, and travels around the country showing a diverse slate, including recent entries at the Berlin, Sundance and Tribeca film festivals.
