The Udine Far East Film Festival wears the Sitges label

This year the Festival will be starting its collaboration with the Udine Far East Film Festival, a festival dedicated to Asian cinema and held in Udine (Italy). The Sitges – International Fantastic Film Festival of Catalonia is programming a European fantastic film section Entitled Sitges Reloaded, which includes five films from its 2014 edition.

The first of the five titles selected to be a part of Sitges Reloaded is Alléluia, by Belgian director Fabrice Du Welz, a film that relates a dark love story, based on a true story. The dark side of feelings is also featured in the second film that can be seen in Udine, the British The Duke of Burgundy, by Peter Strickland, winner of a special mention in the Noves Visions category at Sitges 2014. Also from the United Kingdom is the Festival’s third proposal for Sitges Reloaded, Hyena, the fast-paced police thriller directed by Gerard Johnson, winner of the award for best feature length film in the Official Fantàstic Òrbita category.

The Spanish film, and revelation of the year, Magical Girl, can also be seen in Udine. So Carlos Vermut continues to internationally present this drama with touches of noir that has received awards both in and outside of Spain. And continuing with daring proposals, the final film selected by the Sitges Festival to travel to Italy is Miroslav Slaboshpitsky’s The Tribe, a unique cinematic exercise performed entirely in sign language, with love and hate running high.

The Udine Far East Film Festival will be held from 23 April to 2 May, with an in-competition category made up of titles from China, Hong-Kong, Taiwan, Japan, South Korea, the Philippines or Indonesia, among other Asian countries. The Sitges Reloaded films have been programmed to be screened over all the days the Festival is running.
