In November, Instituto Cervantes collaborates with the Seville European Film Festival on the film cycle Nuevas cinefilias: Estaciones singulares. The four recent Spanish films screened in this cycle could not have been made in the past because of their language and themes—they innovate, take risks, and play with contemporary structure and narratives, and in doing so, they update the legacy of cinema and open a path for filmgoers to understand the constant changes that are taking place in society.
Since 2018, this film cycle has been organized by both collaborating institutions as a showcase for new Spanish cinema.
