The critics predict a great year for the film Loreak, presented at the San Sebastian Film Festival. This time, it has crossed the Atlantic to take part at the Guadalajara International Film Festival, where it will compete at the Ibero-American Fiction Films section, along with 14 other films – including La Isla Mínima. The festival will be held on  March 6-15 in, Guadalajara (Mexico).

The last movie of Jon Garaño and Jose Mari Goenaga is succeeding since it was released. It was the first film shot entirely in Basque that took part in the Official Selection of the San Sebastian Film Festival and has been nominated for Best Film at the Goya Awards - the first basque- speaking nominated ever. They also nominated for the Goya for best original music the soundtrack composed by Pascal Gaigne. The film has participated in other festivals like BFI London Film Festival, Zurich Film Festival and Tokyo International Film Festival.

This is not the first time the festival of Guadalajara hosts Basque cinema, as the Etxepare Basque Institute has been working with the festival for years to promote our cinema. In the last edition Una esvástica sobre el Bidasoa -Alfonso Andrés y Javier Barajas took part at the festival.
