43rd SITGES – International Fantastic Film Festival of Catalonia . 7th to 17th Oct. 2010

The International Fantastic Film Festival of Catalonia is the first horror and fantasy film festival in the world. This year is its 43rd edition and as always becomes a stimulating meeting point of presentations, exhibitions, screenings and above all so much entertaintment. Sitges becomes a ideal scenario for fiction: the projection space are scattered throughout the city, like a atrezzo for the fiction.

The Festival presents the Official Section with 2 groups: Oficial Fantastic and Oficial Noves Visions. But there are other sections to enjoy: Orient Express – Casa Asia, Anima’t, Midnight X-Treme, Seven Chances, retrospect / Sitges Classics, Brigadoon and Catalan Focus.

Each year many celluloid stars visit the festival, as well as producers, directors and experts on emerging trends and technologies applied to audiovisual.

The Shining (1980), by Stanley Kubrick has inspired the image of this edition. This film celebrates his 30th anniversary and is one of the few undoubtedly classic horror films that still holds up with the passage of time, going beyond the genre and the director himself.

The Festival will also be remembering the 25th anniversary of Back to the Future by Robert Zemeckis, offer a special tribute to the deceased Paul Naschy with the screening of the documentary El hombre que vio llorar a Frankenstein, and will be celebrating the 50th anniversary of Psycho by Alfred Hitchcock.

Each year we are surprised with trailer and spots that advertise the festival. We will let you know when the new one will be available.

Dates: from 7th to 17th  October 2010
