In the closing day of the International Short Film Festival of Bueu, which is going to take place next Saturday 16th of September, you may see more familiar faces. Actress Nieve de Medina will come in the town to receive a Honour Award, established by FICBUEU from this tenth edition to recognise the career of a reputable professional in the field of cinema, as well as Galician Cinema Award, which is going to be given to actor Antonio Durán ‘Morris’ this year.
Nieve de Medina has a vast experience in the cinema, TV and theatre, as well as in some short films. However, her popularity is not at the same level as her talent. That is the reason why she was chosen to receive this tribute. She is one of the greatest actresses in Spanish cinema whose huge versatility –she has also worked in dance and dubbing– has provided us with excellent performances. In her filmography, some famous films are El bola, Un franco 14 pesetas or Los lunes al sol. The last one drove her to be nominated for the Goya award to the best newcomer actress. She was also involved in some TV series like Cuéntame, Bajo sospecha or El ministerio del tiempo, not to mention her recently released monologue Modelos animales.
The winner of this Honour Award will be interviewed by Javier Gallego ‘Crudo’ in his programme ‘Carne Cruda’, which is going to take place from 19:45h in the surroundings of Centro Social do Mar. The current edition of FICBUEU will be analysed in the radio show and, in this media, Carlos Sedes will also participate. He is the director of Fariña, a series based on the successful homonymous book by Nacho Carretero about drug trafficking in Galicia. Some of the main actors were also invited to participate. Among them, ‘Morris’, who performs the role of Manuel Charlín. Besides, Moon Cresta will play live.
Moreover, some Galician filmmakers will come to the town during the morning to participate in Vermouth with CREA, organised by this association. At 13:15h, they will gather in the meeting point in order to share their impressions with the international guests of the festival. The spectators can also take part in this meeting. In the morning, the foreign directors will go on a hiking route in Cape Udra and, on Friday, they will travel to Ons Isand. Besides, on Saturday they will sail onboard the traditional watercrafts of association Os Galos, three experiences funded by Tourism of Galicia. That same day, they will attend the gastronomic encounter which is going to take place in the local market, a cooking show planned by Galicia Calidade.
Furthermore, more than 1.000 children came yesterday and also today morning to the screenings planned for educational centres, where the short films of the sections Childhood and Youth were showed. These students came from different levels in Primary education from the schools A Pedra, Virxe Milagrosa, Montemogos (Beluso), A Torre-Cela, O Carballal (Marín), A Rúa (Cangas), Reibón and Quintela, they all in order to enjoy the short films.
