The Spanish Institute for Film and Audiovisual Arts (ICAA) a part of the Ministry of Education, Culture and Sport, together with the American Cinematheque and EGEDA (Audio-Visual Producers’ Rights Management Association) announce the 18th edition of Recent Spanish Cinema series that will showcase the most outstanding recent Spanish films at the American Cinematheque at the Egyptian Theatre in Los Angeles, October 11 – 14, 2012.

This 2012 series will be kicked off with the special opening premiere of the official Spanish Entry for Best Foreign Language Film for the Academy Awards 2013, BLANCANIEVES (SNOW WHITE) directed by Pablo Berger and starring Maribel Verdú, Inma Cuesta & Macarena García.

This edition is honored with the attendance of directors Pablo Berger (Blancanieves), Benito Zambrano (The Sleeping Voice) and Patricia Ferreira (The Wild Ones).

Join us for our 18th annual showcase of the wildest, sexiest new films from Spain - on the big screen at the Egyptian Theatre in Hollywood. Included in this year's lineup are the 2012 Goya Best Film winner NO REST FOR THE WICKED, a searing neo-noir from director Enrique Urbizu, starring Jose Coronado; Alberto Rodriguez's crime drama UNIT 7 and Fernando Gonzalez Molina's coming of age drama and romance I WANT YOU (the sequel to THREE STEPS ABOVE HEAVEN, a selection from last year's Recent Spanish Cinema), both starring Spanish star Mario Casas. Also included are Ignacio Ferreras' stunning animated feature WRINKLES, based on Paco Roca’s comic of the same title; THE WILD ONES, an elegant triptych of coming-of-age tales and winner of four awards at the Malaga Spanish Film Festival; and 2011’s much-lauded, multiple-Goya winner THE SLEEPING VOICE, starring Maria Leon, Inma Cuesta, from director Benito Zambrano.

In addition to the lineup, the series will screen the short film Wings by José Villalobos, the winning entry from the New Filmmakers from Spain short film contest, a competition for Spanish film students living in USA.

    The trailer you post here for Blancanieves is not the correct one! This is just the Disney trailer in Spanish... The correct trailer is for example: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RXQ1jkdu2Ps
