The Spanish Cinema Academy has unanimously re-elected actress Marisa Paredes as its president for three more years.

Paredes, whose credits include All About My Mother and Life Is Beautiful, replaced actress Aitana Sanchez-Gijon in the top Academy spot in December 2000.

Scriptwriter-director Joaquin Oristrell and director-producer Antonio Chavarrias were also re-elected as vice presidents. One of the priorities of their new mandate, they say, is a greater incorporation of Latin American cinema in Spain's Oscar-equivalent Goya Awards.
