Spanish Academy names interim president

Veteran producer Eduardo Campoy steps up

MADRID -- The Spanish Film Academy has named Eduardo Campoy its interim president, filling the void left last week when then-president Angeles Gonzalez-Sinde accepted the post as Spain's new culture minister.

Campoy, a veteran producer and former president of the Spanish producers' lobby FAPAE, will call on academy members to elect a new president in June.

Gonzalez-Sinde's three-year term as academy president was due to expire at the end of 2009.
