Spanish Film Festival 2018 cr @2x

The Spanish are famous for several things: a warped sense of humour being high among the list. No more evident is such this delicious brand of dark comedy than in Abracadabra, just one of the awesome dramedies – amongst other genres – which feature in the Spanish Film Festival 2018.

Kicking off in Sydney next week (April 17th), followed promptly by launches in Canberra (18th), Melbourne (19th), Adelaide, Brisbane and Perth (all April 26th), this will be the 21st anniversary of the film festival in Australia, boasting a program bigger, bolder and more brillante than seasons previous.

Highlights on the program include La Tribu (The Tribe), a film in the spirit of The Full Monty but fully female-driven, Sin Rodeos (No Filter), about a superstar comic who speaks her mind so freely, she unleashes fury on everyone, and the aforementioned Abracadabra in which hypnosis, murder and the hard side of marriage clash profoundly and somewhat hilariously.

So, get a little Latino in you this month, and check out some Espagnol on the big screen. You’ll be muy contento that you did.  Antonino Tati
