With a solid experience, the Sitges Festival is a stimulating universe of encounters, exhibitions, presentations and screenings of fantasy films from all over the world.
Born in 1968 as the 1st International Week of Fantasy and Horror Movies, today the Festival is an essential rendezvous for movie lovers and audiences eager to come into contact with new tendencies and technologies applied to film and the audiovisual world.
Sitges’ status as the number one fantasy film festival in the world allows it to receive visits from top-level movie stars, directors and producers like Quentin Tarantino, Sir Anthony Hopkins, Jodie Foster, Paul Verhoeven, Ralph Fiennes, George A. Romero, Cameron Diaz, Viggo Mortensen, Terry Gilliam, Rutger Hauer, Sarah Michelle Gellar, John Landis, Joe Dante, Zoë Bell, Dino de Laurentii, Takashi Miike, Wim Wenders, Tony Curtis, David Cronenberg, Vanessa Redgrave, Darren Aronofsky, Brad Dourif, John McNaughton, Peter Greenaway, John Woo, Park Chan-Wook, Johnnie To, Paul Naschy, Ray Liotta, Jon Voight, Sam Raimi, Robert Englund, Tarsem Singh, Roger Corman, Mira Sorvino, Santiago Segura, Narciso Ibáñez Serrador, Guillermo del Toro, Kim Ki Duk, Álex de la Iglesia, Aitana Sánchez Gijón, among others from the long list of people who, year after year, are a media attraction. The Festival is governed by a Foundation, made up of representatives from the Sitges Town Council, the Generalitat de Catalunya (Catalonia’s autonomous government) and other institutions, associations and public and private companies.
Most of its resources come from the sponsors, companies and collaborating institutions that consider their alliance to the Festival to be an excellent platform for widening their scope and branding.
The Sitges International Fantastic Film Festival of Catalonia; October 4-14, 2012.
Arguably the world’s most renown international horror/fantasy film festival takes place each year on the Balearic Sea Riviera in Sitges, Spain at the Sitges International Fantastic Film Festival of Catalonia. The festival opened yesterday for its 45th edition with the Spanish murder mystery thriller film ‘El Cuerpo’ ('The Body', 2012) by director Oriol Paulo starring José Coronado, Belén Rueda, Hugo Silva and Aura Garrido.
Sitges is notorious for hosting the world’s most celebrated horror and fantasy films, from low budget international indies to major Hollywood blockbusters; Sitges is like the 'Cannes Film Festival' for the fantastic film genre. Every year major industry players attend the festival to promote their films.
Some of this year’s festival guests will include: Director Neil Jordan (‘The Company of Wolves’, 1987 and ‘Interview With a Vampire’ 1994); actor Elijah Wood (‘Lord of the Rings’ and ‘Maniac’, 2012); actress Barbara Steele (‘The Butterfly Room’, 2012); director Jennifer Lynch (‘Chained’, 2012), producer Brian Witten (‘Chernobyl Diaries’, 2012; The Barrens, 2012), director Dario Argento (Dracula 3D, 2012), director Rian Johnson (‘Looper’, 2012) and producer Eli Roth (‘Hostel’ 2005, ‘Aftershock’ 2012).
This year’s festival promises to pack a punch for fantasy/horror film fans in Spain and from abroad. To learn more about Sitges and the films to be shown, check out their website:
