57th San Sebastian Festival News

Next Thursday the most famous festival in the Spanish speaking world will start and this year the fest website is offering up-to-date photo galleries and the sansebastianfestivalTV channel that offers you the possibility to live up close the events of each day of the festival: rebroadcast of its galas, award-giving ceremonies, press conferences, and numerous TV reports, special programs, interviews and summaries of each day with a wide selection of videos with the most outstanding events taking place at the Zinemaldia.

To watch the videos available from next Friday go here.

Sir Ian McKellen will receive the Donostia Award on the 23rd

Cultivated in the Shakespeare classics, the British actor achieved worldwide fame in The Lord of the Rings and X-Men. He won the Silver Shell for Best Actor in 1998 for Gods and Monsters.

To read the announcement go here.

Since one of the fest sponsors is TVE, maybe TVE International will broadcast the opening ceremony next Thursday; I’ll be checking and if the find is positive will be my first time watching something from this festival.

Well, yes I'll be able to watch it and I'm recording the show to watch perhaps next Saturday!
