SPANISH FILM FESTIVAL SPECIAL EVENTS

27/04/2017 - 17/05/2017 SPANISH FILM FESTIVAL SPECIAL EVENTS

Discover ‘REEL INSPIRACIÓN’ as the Spanish Film Festival (SFF), playing exclusively at Cinema Paradiso, Northbridge, reveals the thrilling program for its 20thbirthday edition.
OPENING NIGHT FIESTA – Thursday 27th April We kick off the Opening Night of the Spanish Film Festival with a glass of Freixenet cava and the premiere screening of Paco Leon’s kinky comedy KIKI, LOVE TO LOVE, the playful, provocative and award-winning comedy that became a massive sleeper hit at the Spanish box office in 2016. The party will continue after the screening with a Spanish fiesta at Connections Night Club featuring Torres wines, Stella beer, tasty Spanish food from Pinchos and entertainment from DJ Harvey Rae. Across five separate stories, KIKI: LOVE TO LOVE’s charismatic characters all share one thing in common: an unusual impulse that they are unable to suppress. Determined to shed the self- imposed inhibitions prompted by their desires, these madrileños embark on a hilarious sense of adventures in which no pleasure can – nor will – be denied. Freely adapted from Josh Lawson’s The Little Death, the Aussie source proves to be a perfect match for the handsome, adorable and slightly daffy persona of a Goya-nominated writer/director and star, Leon. But his stylish injection of Latino spirit and an Almodovar-esque blending of comedy and pathos makes the film irresistibly unique – in no small part to his talented ensemble of Spain’s brightest young actors including Candela Peña and Natalia de Molina. Winner: Best Comedy Film – Feroz Awards 2017 Nominated: Best Adapted Screenplay, Best Original Song, Best New Actress, Best Supporting Actress – Goya Awards 2017
