Prison 77

A five-time Goya Award-winner and Spanish box office hit,Prison 77 is an intense thriller from acclaimed director Alberto Rodríguez (Marshland SPA15) starring Javier Gutiérrez (Champions SPA19, The Daughter SPA22) and Miguel Herrán (Money HeistElite).

Four's a Crowd

Directed and co-written by Álex de la Iglesia (Perfect Strangers) Four’s a Crowd is a wild romantic comedy and Spanish box office hit. A comedy of frustration, with acidic dialogue and eclectic characters, you don’t want to miss this wayward tale of romance on the road that takes a dark turn.


For centuries, many men and women have left everything to dedicate their lives to contemplation in Spain. Directed by Santos Blanco and written by Javier Lorenzo, the fascinating documentary Free is a journey into their lives and inner thoughts.

A Singular Crime

A gripping thriller based on true events and the bestselling novel by Reynaldo Sietecase, A Singular Crime features an exceptional cast headed by Nicolás Francella (High Seas), Matías Mayer, Malena Sánchez (Super Crazy SPA19) and Darío Grandinetti (Rojo, SPA19, Wild Tales, Hierro).
