Part of: Silver Screenings

Directed by Gaston Duprat 
Starring Penelope Cruz, Antonio Banderas, Oscar Martinez, José Luis Gómez 

Independent cinema darling Lola Cuevas (Cruz) is approached by ageing, ailing business mogul Humberto Suárez (José Luis Gómez) to make a film that he hopes will be his legacy for the world. For the cast Cuevas pits acclaimed but stiflingly snobbish ‘Actor’ Ivan Torres (Martínez) against handsome but superficial screen icon Felix Rivero (Banderas), believing that the inevitable tension between the two can only help the film’s dynamic. She couldn’t be more right, as the three gather for a nine-day rehearsal that sees each pushed to their wits’ end.

Official Competition is a comedy drama that explores the ‘serious’ business of making a film.
