We are ready to announce the first titles that will feature in the official section for the upcoming 34th edition of the festival. To start out, we have two familiar faces who have already been in several festivals devoted to the fantastic and horror genres throughout 2015; we are referring to the Russian film III and the North American The House on Pine Street. On the other hand, we can announce the Mexican Luna de Miel (Honeymoon) which in spite of being published in our country so far, has won rave reviews from other movie festivals worldwide.
Hopefully, we will soon be able to provide further information about the 2015 programme that is coming full of excellent movies and big surprises.
