Sitges – One of Variety’s 50 Unmissable Film Festivals

So I think I got this link from well over 20 people when I checked my e-mail this morning. Nice to see The Sitges Film Festival (along with PiFan and others) get some love in Variety!

::: 50 unmissable film festivals


With its 40th birthday this year, Sitges, Europe’s biggest fantasy-film fest, is genre geekdom in the sun. The Mediterranean glints outside its Melia Hotel headquarters. Guests can rub black T-shirted shoulders with Guillermo del Toro, a regular. Quentin Tarantino is a three-time visitor. John Carpenter even set his “Cigarettes Burns” here. The fest world preems pics from a burgeoning local Barcelona chiller industry, and a clutch of Spanish distribution deals go down each year in the bar.”
