“El ciudadano ilustre”
Amsterdam Spanish Film Festival
The award-winning film “El ciudadano ilustre” will festively kick-off the countdown to the third edition of the Amsterdam Spanish Film Festival on April 25th | 8.30pm at the prestigious Pathé Tuschinski theatre.
¡Spring is coming and with that of course the annual return of the most original Spanish focused film festival in Holland! ASFF not only treats its amazingly dedicated audience to the best in contemporary, experimental and classic Spanish cinema, but also offers them the culinary highlights and spirits that Spain is known for. Mark your calendars for our famous launch event at Pathé Tuschinski on April 25th during which we will premiere “El ciudadano ilustre” and toast to the approaching edition of ASFF starting on May 30th 2017.
Argentinean directorial duo Duprat and Cohn’s film combines comedy, drama and suspense. “El ciudadano ilustre” stars Oscar Martinez as an author leaving Barcelona to return to Salas to accept an illustrious prize. The film is a comedic, artistic and heartfelt trip into Argentina that explores fame, family and fatality. It won the Goya Award for Best Iberoamerican Film, Best Film and Best Actor at Venice Film Festival 2016 and is nominated 8 times at the Argentina Academy Awards.
The launch event will set the tone for the upcoming third edition of the Amsterdam Spanish Film Festival that will run from May 30th till June 4th in Pathé Tuschinski, Pathé de Munt, Eye, het Ketelhuis and Bimhuis.
In 2017 we will be bigger, better and even bolder with our film selection, stars, filmmakers, live music events, bites, wines, Q&A’s, workshops and exhibitions. Providing you with the unique experience that we pride ourselves with organizing since 2015 has been a pleasure, now it’s time to present you the results. See you soon. Tot snel. Hasta pronto.
