Ken Loach's Sweet Sixteen, Walter Doehner's The Blue Room (La Habitacion Azul), Diego Arsuaga's The Last Train (El Ultimo Tren) and Eduard Cortes's Nobody's Life (La Vida De Nadie) are among the titles set to compete in Spain's forthcoming Valladolid International Film Week (Oct 25-Nov 2).

The festival traditionally announces the participation of Spanish productions and - as in the case of all of the competition titles unveiled except Cortes's Life - co-productions before unveiling its full line-up.

Three other Spanish productions will screen out-of-competition in the Official Section: Manuel Gutierrez Aragon's Venice competition entry Don Quijote, Knight Errant (El Caballero Don Quijote), Ventura Pons music documentary El Gran Gato and Carlos Saura's music-inspired Salome.

Spanish films will also be present in various sidebars, the short film competition, a Spanish Cinema retrospective of the year's productions and a cycle dedicated to Spanish director Basilio Martin Patino.
