Winterbottom's "Genova," will unspool alongside Iranian filmmaker Samira Makhmalbaf's "Two-Legged Horse" and Japanese director Hirokazu Kore-eda's "Still Walking."

Rounding out the newcomers are "Pandora's Box," from Turkey's Yesim Ustaoglu, Spaniard Javier Fesser's "Camino" and "My Prison Yard," from freshman helmer Belen Macias of Spain.

The festival runs Sept. 18-27 in the northern Spanish seaside resort.
