On Thursday, September 27, the San Sebastian Festival will host the presentation of the short film La octava dimension (The Eighth Dimension), produced by Audi and written and directed by Kike Maíllo (Eva, Toro). The piece stars Najwa Nimri (Open Your Eyes, Lovers of the Artic Circle, Sex and Lucia, Vis a vis), Alberto Ammann (Cell 211, Narcos), Javier Pereira (8 citas, Stockholm, May God Save Us) and the new Audi Q8. The thriller was shot during the month of July in different locations in Barcelona and Huesca.
With this production, Audi aims to reaffirm and take another step forward in its firm commitment to the cinema of our country. A commitment which takes shape in its backing of Film Festivals (San Sebastian International Film Festival, Malaga Film Festival, Atlantida Film Festival, BCN Film Festival), film productions (Stockholm, Requirements To Be a Normal Person, Toro, Tu hijo) and TV productions (Sé quién eres, La zona... among others). Furthermore, the brand of four rings regularly collaborates with the Spanish Academy of Cinematic Arts and Sciences.
Furthermore, for the last five editions, Audi has organised at the San Sebastian International Film Festival its Audi Think Tank on Cinema and Innovation, an interesting meeting which unites recognised names from the seventh art in our country (screenwriters, artist, directors, producers, distributors...) in order to debate and reflect on the present and future of our cinema.
This time, Audi launches its own production with a short film in which we will also see the new Audi Q8 as the protagonist of one of the main scenes in the action. The poster is designed by Iñaki Villuendas, an illustrator who won the Best Poster prize at the Feroz 2018 Awards with his work for Handia (Giant). Furthermore, the graphic designer is one of the best known poster artists of Spanish cinema; notable among his works are the designs for The Impossible, Fury of a Patient Man, Veronica, Oro, Colossal or Saras Notebook, among others.
A successful mystery novel writer, Olga Calderón, gives a masterclass on the dimensions which lend shape to a tale. The writer uses as illustration a story for which an alter ego is created. The story revolves around a tragical occurrence: a car accident. As Olga reveals the different dimensions of the fiction, she will also disclose the unknown factors of a tale which will completely fascinate her students. A tale built around the 8 faces of the truth.
