The team behind the Seville European Film Festival, headed up by José Luis Cienfuegos, is organising the 17th edition of the event with all the resilience and energy it can muster, despite the unfavourable conditions for the seventh art all around the globe.

In addition, as has become customary, it will serve as the venue for the unveiling – at midday on Tuesday 10 November – of the nominees for the 33rd awards set to be handed out by the European Film Academy.
