The magnificent eight

FILM FESTIVAL: Will feature productions from eight different countries in various styles.

FIVE international productions have chosen to air their first screenings at the Almeria Western Film Festival, which runs from October 6 to 9 in Tabernas, the organisers have announced.

This year, the festival will include productions from eight different countries in various styles ranging from classical and postmodern western to neowestern, festival director Juan Francisco Viruego explained, and received such a good response that more categories for both short and long films are to be included in the next edition’s competitions.

The organisers are currently viewing submissions and will announce the list of finalists to be screened during the festival, held at Oasys-Mini Hollywood and Fort Bravo, on September 10.

Supported by Tabernas local council, Almeria Provincial Council and the Junta de Andalucia regional government, the festival helps bring western productions usually ignored by commercial cinema listings out into the public eye and also promotes the area both as a tourist destination and a perfect location for filming for the national and international film industries.
