San Sebastian International Film Festival

Film Festival in San Sebastián

The San Sebastian International Film Festival has been running since 1953 and is held in September in the Spanish city of Donostia-San Sebastián. It is currently hosted in the Kursaal.

It has hosted several important events of the history of cinema, such as the international premieres of Vertigo, by Alfred Hitchcock and the European premiere of Star Wars.

By far the best-known of all the festivals in San Sebastian outside of the Basque Country, San Sebastian’s annual film festival draws cinephiles from near and far. From up-and-coming talent to internationally known household names, participants in the festival offer a little bit of everything. It’s a fantastic opportunity to screen dozens of the year’s best films from all over the world.
