The 63rd San Sebastián International Film Festival will take place from September 18-26, 2015. This prestigious film festival has been held since 1953 and has become a world renowned showcase for actors as well as directors.
Each year artists and fans crowd into the cosmopolitan seaside capital of the Basque region to see which films will be showcased in what is considered to be the most important event in the Spanish-speaking world. Festival participants enjoy the less frenetic pace in San Sebastián, as compared to those held in cities like Cannes or Toronto, since most theaters are located within a short walk of each other and you can easily see a few films in the same day. And if watching films makes you hungry, there is no better place to find some of the best food in the world, since San Sebastián, like Paris, boasts the highest concentration of Michelin-starred restaurants.
Top honors bestowed at the festival are the Golden Seashell, for best film, and the Donostia Award, an honorary awarded given to deserving film personalities. Last year’s Donostia award recipients were Denzel Washington and Benicio del Toro.
