This is the 67th edition of the San Sebastian contest, ninth under the direction of José Luis Rebordinos, and will take place until September 28. A festival that will feature its usual display of fixed sections such as Perlas, Horizontes Latinos, Zabaltegui and New Directors, as well as others such as Culinary Zinema that meets nine editions, as well as the section of productions whose authorship is of Spanish origin in Made in Spain and a retrospective dedicated to Roberto Gavaldón, which will include twenty feature films by the Mexican director.

A selection of 204 titles (between feature films and short films) that will deal mainly with drama in its different aspects, family, social, adolescent or old age. Room for thriller and criminal intrigue, period drama, genre and author movies, social documentary. Comedies, few, and some with black humor. A film appointment committed to Spanish cinema, since in this edition there will be four, three less than in the previous edition, the films in the official section and three of those titles will fight to win the festival. Alejandro Amenábar (‘While the war lasts‘), Belén Funes (‘The daughter of a thief‘) and Aitor Arregi, Jon Garaño and Jose Mari Goenaga (‘La trenche infinita‘) will have the honor of trying. Sánchez Seventeen ’by Daniel Sánchez Arévalo will be screened out of competition.

In this 67th edition of the San Sebastián Film Festival, 17 films will fight to win the Concha de Oro, the highest award at the San Sebastian festival. A statuette that has awarded such disparate films in its last three editions, such as the Chinese 'I am not Madame Bovary' (2016 edition), the American 'The Disaster Artist' (2017 edition) and the Spanish 'Between two waters' in 2018.

The jury of the Official Section of the San Sebastian Festival 2019 will be chaired by the Irish film director Neil Jordan, author of 'Game of Tears', Oscar for the best original screenplay, and will accompany him in the deliberations to award the Golden Shell the actresses Bárbara Lennie and Mercedes Morán, producers Pablo Cruz and Katriel Schori, director of photography Lisabi Fridell and a last member to be confirmed.

We begin the review of the most interesting of the San Sebastian Festival 2019. Titles scheduled both in the official section and in Perlas, Horizontes Latinos and Zabaltegi. Movies that in some of the cases will have their exclusive premiere in Donostia. An official section without established filmmakers who risks hosting some first operas such as the Portuguese ‘Patrick‘ or the Mexican ‘Manpower‘. In feature film competition we will see ‘Zeroville‘, the return of James Franco to the San Sebastian competition, a literary adaptation, in this case of the eponymous novel by Steve Erickson. The winner of the Golden Shell in 2017 directs and stars in this fiction set in the changing Hollywood of the late 60s, which has in its cast Megan Fox and Seth Rogen.

In the same transgressive spirit that he showed in his film 'The Kidnapping of Michel Houellebecq' (2014), director Guillaume Nicloux puts the famous French writer back on camera, who in 'Thalasso' plays himself with Gérard Depardieu as artistic cast mate. And from Chile José Luis Torres Leiva will present ‘Death will come and have your eyes‘, which relates the love relationship of two women in the final moments of the life of one of them. And very attentive to the new works of the Spanish filmmakers in competition, especially ‘While the war lasts‘ and ‘The infinite trench in.

Kazakhstan-born filmmaker Adilkhan Yerzhanov will compete in San Sebastian with ‘A Dark-Dark Man‘, a film focused on a police officer and a journalist investigating the death of a child in a Kazakh village. And we will be wide-eyed to see the works of film directors, such as ‘The other lamb‘ by the Polish Malgorzata Szumowska, which focuses on a teenager, a devoted follower of an alternative religion. Also in France's Alice Winocour, winner of the César for the best original screenplay for ‘Mustang‘ (2015), in Matt Proxima dirige she directs Matt Dillon and Eva Green, who plays an astronaut who lives alone with her seven-year-old daughter.

The Latin Horizons section will offer a selection of fifteen Latin American productions, including award-winning films at Cannes and Sundance, and selected in Berlin and Venice. The documentary section ‘The Mountain Range of Dreams‘ by Patricio Guzmán, a historical investigation and an intimate and collective introspection about Chile opens the section. You can also see the Guatemalan ‘Temblores‘, an LGTBI-themed cinema that tells the story of a 40-year-old evangelical Christian practitioner who falls in love with a man. The Uruguayan ‘This is how the money changer spoke quinto, Federico Veiroj's fifth feature film focuses on a clandestine currency trader deposited by Argentines and Brazilians who works in Montevideo.

And a promising title is the Colombian drama ‘Monos‘, a production that will fight for the non-English speaking Oscar nomination. This is the third film by Alejandro Landes that could be seen this year in Sundance and Berlin. It is a contemporary reinterpretation of The Lord of the Flies, starring a group of guerrilla children and an American hostage. Also from Sundance and having won the 'Films in Progress 34' section at the Zinemaldia in 2018, Lucía Garibaldi's debut feature, 'Los tiburones', will be seen, a story about the awakening of a teenager's desire in the context of a spa altered by the suspicion that there are sharks.

Mexican film actor, director and producer Gael García Bernal, whose career the festival has closely followed since making his international acting debut with 'Amores Perros', will present his second feature film as a director, 'Chicuarotes', which starred in one of the special screenings of the last Cannes Festival and tells the story of two teenagers trying to escape the poverty and violence of their country.

From Zabaltegi, the most eclectic competitive section of the San Sebastian Festival 2019, a total of 19 titles will be seen in competition, including the latest works by filmmakers such as Bertrand Bonello, Mati Diop, Takashi Miike and Diao Yinan, among others. Among those that stand out, rand Zombi Child ‘by Bertrand Bonello that started in 1962 in Haiti and continued in the French capital 55 years later. For his part, Takashi Miike will participate with 'Hatsukoi' (First Love) a story in which a boxer, a prostitute, a corrupt police officer and a yakuza, among other recognizable characters in the filmography of a director, who like Bonello, presented this film at the Cannes Directors' Fortnight.

The level of the Pearls section this year is as extraordinary as in previous years because it collects authentic wonders that have passed through Berlin, Cannes and Venice and even Toronto. Titles as interesting as the French debut of Japanese filmmaker Hirokazu Koreeda with ‘The Truth‘. Coming from La Mostra, the new from the Chilean Pablo Larraín, a drama about art, desire, and the modern family entitled ‘Ema‘. And from Cannes 'Portrait of a woman on fire', a feminist period drama directed by Céline Sciamma for which she almost won the Palme d'Or, but which won recognition for the best screenplay and unanimous applause from specialized critics.

And coming from this festival, we can also see ‘O que arde ar by the Galician Oliver Laxe, who managed to win the Jury Prize in the Un Certain Regard section. Equally acclaimed for the Russian drama 'Beanpole' (Kantemir Balagov), Robert Eggers' new film, 'The Lighthouse', set in the late 19th century, tells the story of two lighthouse keepers (Willem Dafoe and Robert Pattinson) working together on a Mysterious lost island of New England.
