The San Sebastian Film Festival on Tuesday announced that it has added Bradley Cooper’s A Star Is Born, Spike Lee’s BlacKkKlansman and Damien Chazelle’s First Man, along with seven other movies, to its lineup.
The 10 additions, which also include new films from Alfonso Cuaron, Jacques Audiard and Jia Zhangke, will screen in the Spanish fest’s so-called Perlak section competition for the City of Donostia/San Sebastian Audience Award.
Spain’s only A-list event, and the leading Spanish-speaking festival in the world, San Sebastian is set to run Sept. 21-29 in the beachside town in northern Spain’s Basque region.
Cooper will screen his directorial debut, A Star Is Born, in which he portrays a musician who discovers and falls in love with a struggling artist (Lady Gaga). After its premiere in Venice, the film will bring the audience award lineup to a close in San Sebastian.
Jia’s Ash Is Purest White chronicles the changes transforming China via a violent love story.
Other movies that organizers added to the fest’s lineup include Nadine Labaki’s Capharnaum, winner of the jury prize at Cannes; Lukas Dhont’s Girl, winner of the Golden Camera award for best first film at Cannes; Ciro Guerra’s Pajaros de verano (Birds of Passage); and Mamoru Hosoda’s Mirai, which premiered in the Cannes Directors’ Fortnight program.
These films join those previously unveiled for the San Sebastian audience award category, namely Jafar Panahi’s Three Faces, Pawel Pawlikowski’s Cold War, Kirill Serebrennikov’s Summer, Luis Ortega’s El angel, Jaime Rosales’ Petra, and Raul de la Fuente and Damian Nenow’s Another Day of Life, as well as Asako I & II by Ryusuke Hamaguchi.
