New home for Spanish Film Academy


MADRID -- Spanish Culture Minister Carmen Calvo on Thursday handed over the keys to an historic mansion in the heart of Madrid to Spanish Film Academy president Angeles Gonzalez-Sinde. The building will be used as the entity's new headquarters.

The new headquarters, a goal of the Academy's for the past decade, will house all of the academy's future activities -- except the Goya Awards ceremony -- and offers a screening room, conference hall and other facilities for events.
