Competition: Win tickets to the BFI Spanish Cinema Festival *closed*

CineVue loves its readers dearly and if we could invite you all back to ours for a case of Rioja and a Pedro Almodovar marathon we surely would. Unfortunately, we have don’t have the floor space and some of you are currently residing at her majesties pleasure, but to make up for this tragic state of affairs we’ve decided to treat you. However, the beautiful people at the legendary BFI have provided us with TWO pairs of tickets for their upcoming celebration of Spanish Cinema.

‘Good Morning Freedom! Spanish Cinema After Franco’, which runs from the 2 – 30 June, is a season which celebrates key films from Spain’s newly unrestricted era, following 40 years of Franco’s dictatorship. The lifting of censorship saw the birth of a filmmaking generation where once taboo subjects (sexuality, drugs, religion) were openly depicted and often challenged.

Titles range from Almodóvar’s melodramatic comedy Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown (1988) to Going Down in Morrocco (1989) a hilarious Spanish comedy about the world of hash-smuggling. These films put Spanish cinema on the world map and are a constant source of inspiration for film and cultural movements around the world.

In order to win a pair of tickets any show of your choosing. We would like you to answer the following question:

What is the Spanish related link between Fleetwood Mac Drummer Mick Fleetwood and actor Brian Cox?

Post your answer in the comment box below or on our Facebook page. Winning answers will be drawn out of a hat (or a mug) and you will notified promptly.

Good luck and adiós!
