¡Viva! Spanish and Latin American Film Festival 2015/ The ¡Viva! Weekender

In March we’ll open the twenty-first edition of ¡Viva! Spanish and Latin American Film Festival with a carefully-honed selection of cinema from Spain and Spanish-speaking Latin America.

To celebrate our move down the road to HOME, we’ll not only have an event at Cornerhouse in March, but also two further events at HOME later in the year – so keep your eyes peeled for our Mexican weekender in June and our fiesta of Spanish cinema in Autumn 2015!
