For a reason I cannot understand I'm unable to browse the site, so I haven’t been able to check the films; but besides the honor for El Niño Pez, the fest has another great news. I’m referring to the announcement by Julio Medem about his next film called Habitación en Roma (Room in Rome) that is the story of two women Alba and Natasha, starring Elena Anaya as Alba and Natasha Yarovenko as Natasha. The film seems VERY interesting and absolutely belongs to the lesbian interest genre. To check the announcement available only in Spanish go here.
