There seems to be a tug-of-war for my 35mm print of 'True Beauty' going on between Spain and America. Right now Spain's winning. The print is on its way to Almería for the aptly named Almería en corto: International Short Film Festival, taking place December 4 through 12. I just hope Spain doesn't keep the print. That sucker was expensive.
Like Valladolid, Almería has its own newspaper-magazine-thing. Must be a Spanish thing:
And holy Mackerel: I just went to their website myself, and the 1st prize in the International competition gets 18,000 Euros. That's not a typo. Lots of zeros. Shit, for that they can keep the print.
