San Seb award takes Another Look


MADRID -- The 55th annual San Sebastian International Film Festival will introduce an award honoring women at this year's festival, which runs Sept. 20-29, organizers announced Thursday.

The Another Look award is sponsored by Spanish pubcaster Television Espanola and will see the state-owned company acquire broadcast rights for the winning film.

Candidate films will "focus on subjects related to the female world" made by either men or women. A jury specially created for the occasion will grant the award.

Television Espanola will continue to maintain its award in the Films in Progress section, which focuses on unfinished Latin American projects.
