The Sunshine Coast’s first ever Spanish Film Festival is set to kick off under the umbrella of the Caloundra Film Festival, October 3 to 12.
The opening night gala on October 3 features a playful and provocative comedy called Kiki, Love to Love, which follows five characters who all share one thing in common: an unusual impulse they are unable to suppress.
It was a massive sleeper hit at the Spanish box office in 2016 and will kick off what is sure to be a brilliant line-up of Spanish films on October 4, 5, 10 and 12.
On the morning of October 10, there will be a showcase of the best work from Sunshine Coast film and television students at the Events Centre in Caloundra, with students attending from around the state and a Google hangout with an industry professional.
The closing night of the Spanish and Caloundra Film Festivals respectively is The Queen of Spain starring Penelope Cruz.
The Caloundra Film Festival began in 2013 with the aim of providing a platform for local, Australian and student filmmakers to show their work and has taken off in a big way.
Opening night kicks off at 7pm at Big Screen Cinemas Caloundra. Be early for drinks and tapas.
Tickets are $12 plus booking fee and are available at caloundrafilmfestival.com.
