Diego Galan, director of the San Sebastian Film Festival, has confirmed that two further Spanish titles will screen in Official Selection at this year's event - Imanol Uribe's Plenilunio and Salvador Garcia Ruiz's El Otro Barrio.
The two titles join Alex de la Iglesia's La Comunidad which opens the event. Plenilunio will screen out of competition. Its director Uribe has twice won San Sebastian's first award, the Golden Seashell, with Dias Contados and Bwana.
Plenilunio is produced by Sogetel and Aiete/Ariane and stars Miguel Angel Sola, Adriana Ozores, Juan Diego Botto and Fernando Fernan Gomez. Adapted by Elvira Lindo from the novel by Antonio Munoz Molina, it revolves around a police investigation in a small city.
El Otro Barrio, set in a working-class neighbourhood in Madrid, is based on a novel by Lindo. Produced by Tornasol Films, it stars Jorge Alcazar and Alex Casanovas. It is Garcia Ruiz's second film and the director will compete for San Sebastian's best new director prize.
The festival will also feature a tribute to Bernardo Bertolucci, a retrospective of the work of British director Carol Reed and an American directors section including work by Arthur Penn, John Frankenheimer, Sidney Lumet and George Roy Hill among others.
