The list of nominations for the first Ibero-American Film Platino Awards promoted by the Audiovisual Producers’ Rights Management Association (EGEDA) and the Ibero-American Federation of Film and Audiovisual Producers (FIPCA) has been announced. Among the candidates, several of the favourites were filmed in different sections of last year’s San Sebastian Festival.

Five of the Festival’s Official Selection participants have landed major nominations: Vivir es fácil con los ojos cerrados (Living Is Easy with Eyes Closed) is nominated for best film, best director and best screenplay (David Trueba) and best actor (Javier Cámara) and will compete against Las brujas de Zugarramurdi (Witching and Bitching), also nominated for best film and best original music. For its part, Caníbal (Cannibal) lands a best actor nomination for Antonio de la Torre, and La herida (Wounded) best actress for Marian Álvarez, while Futbolín (Foosball) is shortlisted for best animated film and best original music.

Other important Ibero-American titles programmed in the Horizontes Latinos section compete for this year’s awards: El médico alemán-Wakolda (The German Doctor), nominated best film, best director and screenplay (Lucía Puenzo) and best actress (Natalia Oreiro); Heli, which competes for best film and director (Amat Escalante); La jaula de oro (The Golden Cage), in the best film and best actress categories (Karen Martínez), and Anina, one of the favourites for best animated film. Another of the big names in the nominations is Gloria, screened in our Pearls section, which competes for best film, best director and best screenplay (Sebastián Lelio and Gonzalo Maza) in addition to best actress (Paulina García).

Lastly, Javier Corcuera’s film Sigo siendo (Kachkaniraqmi) (I am Still), presented in Zabaltegi, is one of this year’s nominees for best documentary.

These awards of Latin American cinema will be presented for the first time on 5 April in Panama City
