San Seb gives Auster slot, jury seat
EmptyMADRID -- Paul Auster's second feature, "The Inner Life of Martin Frost," will run in the Official Section -- though out of competition -- at the 55th annual San Sebastian International Film Festival, festival organizers said Thursday. The U.S. writer-director also will serve as part of the festival's jury.
Auster, who received Spain's Prince of Asturias Prize for Literature last year, joins a list of authors such as Jose Saramago and Mario Vargas Llosa who have sat on the San Sebastian jury.
"Martin Frost" stars Auster's daughter Sophie as the muse of a successful American novelist.
San Sebastian runs Sept. 20-29 in the northern Spanish seaside town in the Basque region.
