The 68th edition of the San Sebastián Film Festival follows in the wake of Venice’s glamor but multiplying the presence of the most famous faces of Spanish cinema, with Elena Anaya at the helm.
As the recent edition of the Venice Film Festival has shown, the film industry continues to be a great generator of glamor and appeal despite the scourge of the pandemic. An Italian edition in which Cate Blanchett, president of the jury, and Spanish celebrities such as Nieves Álvarez, Ester Expósito and Macarena García have shone. Also one more year, the San Sebastian Festival takes over as the international platform for the most interesting cinema of the moment, which also has a fashion incentive on the red carpet of our favorite actresses.
The new normal has imposed red carpets in which there is no public wrapping up the presence of all kinds of stars with their fan fervor. But that gala walk continues to be the ritual space for the brilliant illusion of the premieres. The brightest celeb on the first night of the 68th edition of the contest is undoubtedly Elena Anaya, one of the most attractive faces in Spanish cinema, who renews her international career thanks to Woody Allen and his film Rifkin’s Festival.
At 84, Woody Allen has not been able to travel from New York to attend the world premiere of his latest work. But the presence at the festival of many other well-known industry figures has been confirmed. Johnny Depp is probably the most star system name of this edition, making an impact in his legal battle against his former partner Amber Heard to present the musical documentary Crock of Gold: A Few Rounds with Shane MacGowan. Matt Dillon, Viggo Mortensen and Gina Gershon are other great international names who will wear the mask to walk through the streets of San Sebastián.
Along with them, and in addition to Anaya, the attendance of some of our favorite faces of Spanish cinema is also confirmed, such as Candela Peña, Blanca Suárez, Paz Vega, Irene Escolar or Bárbara Lennie, and among the boys Raúl Arévalo, Alejandro Sanz , Javier Cámara or Roberto Álamo. Filmmaker Isabel Coixet will also return to the city to receive the National Cinematography Award, while for the premiere of Oso, the documentary about the global success story of the jewelery firm Tous, it will be attended by Tamara Falcó, Eugenia Martínez de Irujo or Paula Echevarría. A presence of each and everyone is essential to give the cinema the greatest possible dimension and the necessary return to the public rooms, with all the necessary security measures.
