The 18th edition of the Seville European Film Festival was held with an impressive calendar of screenings which exceeded the geographic limits of Europe. Inaugurated on November 5th, the Festival included the world premiere of seven feature films along with 15 shorts, in addition to highly varied programming with the following categories: The New Waves, Endless Revolutions, Extraordinary Stories, Family Cinema, Special Sessions and Andalusia Panorama, among others.
Seville is the most Spanish of this country’s cities: passionate gypsy ladies and their bullfighting beaus, orange blossom scented nights, the grandeur of the old Moorish buildings, blood red vino and airy patios so thick with bougainvillea and roses that they make the Garden of Eden look like a vacant lot in Houston during high summer. And the best time to witness this beauty is during the Feria de Abril or the April Fair when for a week the city becomes magic.
