Valladolid International Film Festival (also known as Seminci or Semana Internacional de Cine de Valladolid) is a film festival held annually in Valladolid, Spain since 1956. Seminci is one of Europe’s oldest film festivals, and with a genuine concern for the art of cinema, for film-making and film-makers rather than the more obvious commercial or glamorous aspects of the industry, the festival has built up an identity of its own – equally attractive to enthusiasts, professionals and the media.
Jury’s motivation: “The jury has chosen The Guerilla Son for an Honorable Mention because of its creative approach to dealing with the weight of memory and the role it plays in defining our relationsships and expectations. At the same time it is a poignant film about the love between a father and a son.”
