The Seville European Film Festival will showcase a selection of British films at this year’s event in November.
The festival’s organisers are working with a number of British organisations, including the British Film Institute, to create a showcase of films. The titles have yet to be confirmed.
This year’s event, which will run from November 6 to November 14, will feature 138 films from 29 different countries.
In a bid to grow the festival’s international reach, Seville has also signed an agreement with the European Film Academy to showcase the nominations for its awards. As part of the deal, which was signed in Cannes, the festival will be able to screen clips of films that hope to be nominated.
The festival has been active in creating new initiative’s this year, including a deal with European production fund, Eurimages. The fund’s general secretary Roberto Olla will be at this year’s event; and French/German channel Arte will also develop a programme. It is also introducing a youth jury of university students, who will award a film of their choice.
