Hola! We are so excited for the return of the Moro Spanish Film Festival 2019 to Brisbane 24 April – 15 May to Palace Cinemas at the Barracks featuring 32 films from Spain and Latin America, including special presentations and events, innovative documentaries, and a spotlight on female directors.
With a stunning line-up of award-winning films, this year’s event will combine the Spanish Film Festival and the Cine Latino Film Festival to bring you one incredible celebration of film from across Spain & Latin America including Argentina, Mexico, Dominican Republic, Ecuador and more! With a special focus on female directors & with 31 Australian Premieres, you’ll be guaranteed a laugh, a tear, but none-the-less a beautiful Spanish cinema experience - whether you love romance, comedy, documentaries, drama or thrillers.
The festival will open with Javier Fesser’s Champions (Campeones) which won BEST FILM at the GOYA Awards 2019 (Spanish version of The Oscars) and stars Javier Gutiérrez as Marco, an ambitious and arrogant basketball coach forced to train a team of people with disabilities. Critics have claimed this film “too entertaining to resist” – definitely a must-see! From Cine Latino comes Martino Zaidelis’ hilarious comedy Super Crazy (Re Loca) starring Argentinean Natalia Oreiro who takes a remedy that makes her unable to stop speaking her mind. From Chile comes the story of a man in matrimonial crisis in the Chilean version of Married with Children, Looking for a Boyfriend, for my Wife (Se Buscan Novio… Para Mi Mujer).
The 2019 Moro Spanish Film Festival is a celebration of Spanish and Latino language, culture and cinema. Join us for music, tapas, and more!
