THE Sevilla Film Festival stage is set for the world premiere of Agustín Díaz Yanes’ epic new film.

Oro, which translates as Gold, is eagerly anticipated because it is the first time that Yanes has teamed up with Arturo Pérez-Reverte since they collaborated on blockbuster Alatriste
in 2006.

The Festival, held from November 3 to 11, will feature more than 200 Spanish and European films.

Sixteen films, including A Ciambra which has Martin Scorsese as executive producer, and A Violet Life which analyses the Corsican independence movement, are competing for this year’s Golden Giraldillo, awarded to the best film at the festival.

Almost 100 directors from 21 different countries are expected to attend the festival, promises its director José Luis Cienfuegos.
