The festival, which runs March 9-17 in the Mediterranean resort town on Spain's southern coast, is the country's most important festival entirely dedicated to Spanish film and has attracted a following of industry heavyweights and enthusiasts.
Antonio Hernandez's much-anticipated "El menor de los Males"; Anton Reixa's first part of a two-picture co-production agreement with Lars Von Trier's Zentropa, "Hotel Tivoli"; and Rodrigo Cortes' game-show comedy "Concursante" will compete for the €60,000 ($79,000) Golden Biznaga award and the Special Jury prize. So will Azucena Rodriguez's "Atlas de geografia humana," Vicente Penarrocha's "Arritmia," Ricardo Macian's "Los ojos de Ariana" and Santiago Lorenzo's "Un buen dia lo tiene cualquiera."
