What started off in 2009 as an experiment has turned into an overwhelming success that comes around again every six months: the last iteration took place in October 2014 and attracted 2.2 million people. Its eighth edition will be held between 11 and 13 May, and the institutions that are supporting it (FAPAE, FEDICINE, FECE and ICAA) are hoping that it will smash its own records this time around. After gaining accreditation via the gathering’s website, those interested can find invitations to attend screenings at participating theatres for the modest price of €2.90.

, the clear favourite at the penultimate Fiesta del Cine – out of 1.9 million viewers, 800,000 chose to watch it – and the biggest domestic Spanish box-office smash of all time. In case Nacho G Velilla’s comedy had lost its appeal by now, its producer, Atresmedia Cine, will be launching the uninhibited Cómo sobrevivir a una despedida on the market just days before the event (24 April), after it passes through the Malaga Film Festival (read the news). The movie is billed as a kind of The Hangover with female characters, set on Gran Canaria.

The other Spanish titles that will be on offer at the eighth Fiesta del Cine are: The High Pressures [+see also:

The idea behind this initiative is to give a boost to box-office sales while at the same time allowing viewers – especially younger audiences – to re-experience the joy of watching films in theatres. You can find more information and get accredited on the website.
