The Argentine actress Dolores Fonzi first came to San Sebastián 15 years ago and is delighted to be back here as a member of the Official Section jury, since it gives her the opportunity to enjoy herself at the same time as she learns things alongside personalities that she really admires. “If you have to work on a jury, then San Sebastián is one of the best places you can be. For me it’s like being on holiday. And it’s like a dream for anyone who likes cinema.”
She thinks that she contributes a feminist perspective to judging films and that there are so many awards that you have to highlight different things in each film – the performances, the photography, the script. “In the end, the award is subjective, it doesn’t mean that it’s the best film; it’s just the best film for us.”
She’s also really pleased to be here in San Sebastián not only as a juror but also as Donostia Award winner Ricardo Darín’s co-star in La Cordillera, as he’s not only a dear friend but also an actor who she admires and respects a great deal.
As for her future projects, she’s got a new film called El futuro que viene coming out in October, directed by Constanza Novick, and she’s also going to do some theatre with Cecilia Roth.
