Actress Anna Castillo will be awarded the Carlos Saura City of Huesca Award at the 48th Huesca International Film Fest


Actress Anna Castillo will be awarded the Carlos Saura City of Huesca Award at the 48th edition of the Huesca International Film Festival. A recognition that highlights her outstanding career and projection, being one of the most talented performers on the current scene; "It has an innate capacity that has been demonstrated and developed in all kinds of genres and formats," says Rubén Moreno, director of the event in Huesca. Winner of a Goya award, Anna has in her filmography such outstanding titles as the feature films The Olive Tree , The Call or Journey to a Mother's Room ; and series of great critical and public success such as Paquita Salas , Arde Madrid orI'm alive . The award ceremony will take place virtually in a meeting exclusively for the Alto Aragonese contest where Carlos Saura himself will participate, who has given this recognition its name since last year.  


The 48th edition of the Huesca International Film Festival will award its City of Huesca Carlos Saura Award to actress Anna Castillo. The Alto Aragonese event thus recognizes the talent and projection of one of the most outstanding interpreters on the national scene, “she has an innate ability that has been demonstrated and developed in all kinds of genres and formats, her figure perfectly represents the spirit of this award that emphasizes the present and future of the seventh art ”says Rubén Moreno, director of the contest. The Goya Award-winning interpreter has a filmography where more than thirty works appear in just over a decade since her film debut, feature films such as The Olive Tree , The Call , Journey to a Mother's Room , Adú , along with series as Paquita Salas , Arde Madrid or I'm alive , corroborate its scenic strength. This tribute seeks to honor her figure and has the fundamental objective of highlighting close references for young filmmakers and professionals within the industry.


Since last year, the award has been endorsed by the Huesca filmmaker Carlos Saura, whose name joined the recognition. One of the most illustrious names in cinematography today, which was also the first to obtain it in 1991; after him others like Fernando Trueba, Arturo Ripstein or Julio Medem it received equally. Since 2014, the award has been reformulated and acquired a new prism that seeks to highlight talent and projection; This is how Adriana Ugarte, Silvia Abascal, Paula Ortiz, Leticia Dolera , Aura Garrido or Isabel Peña and Rodrigo Sorogoyen have collected it in the most recent editions.


The award in this 2020 will be delivered virtually in an exclusive meeting that Anna Castillo will grant to the Festival and where the filmmaker Carlos Saura will participate. An adaptation for this edition in which the Huesca cultural event is working intensely. Current circumstances have led the management team to redirect the next event to be held from June 12 to 20 and will be based on three essential pillars: an online part where you can see the 80 short films in competition and various parallel sections, face-to-face screenings with reduced capacity for the entire official section and a drive-in cycle that will combine the concept of festival feast with the necessary social distance recommended by health authorities.




Anna Castillo (Barcelona, ​​1993) links her life to acting since she was a child; Her passion for this profession was formalized at the age of just seven when she began her training, even completing the Bachelor of Performing Arts. His versatility is evident from a very young age and at 12 years old he joined the musical group sp3 (of which he was part for five years); at the age of 15 he joined one of the reference programs for children's audiences on Televisió de Catalunya: Club Super3 ; where she plays "Anna", a character with whom she gains great popularity in her homeland.


After appearing in several short films, 2010 is a step forward in her career, her first opportunity on the big screen comes from Elena Trapé with the feature film Blog (which participates in the San Sebastian Film Festival), which debuts in the theater with the musical A by Nacho Cano and joined the cast of the Antena 3 series, Doctor Mateo .


In his second feature film, Promoción Fantasma by Javier Ruiz Caldera ( 3 more weddings , Superlópez ), he shares the bill with other prominent names in current Spanish cinema such as Raúl Arévalo, Alexandra Jiménez, Aura Garrido, Carlos Areces and Silvia Abril. This work is followed in 2013 by the series Amar es para siempre by Antena 3, which combines until 2014 with the great critical and public success of La Llamada , the musical by Javier Ambrossi and Javier Calvo starring Macarena García.


The definitive accolade of the industry comes from the hand of El Olivo (2015) by Icíar Bollaín , a film that stars alongside Javier Gutiérrez and that gives him the Goya Award as Revelation Actress. After this award, he participates in such outstanding series as The Ministry of Time , Paquita Salas and I'm Alive , while also shooting two other films: Gold by Agustín Díaz Yanes and the film adaptation of the play The Call . With the latter, she is again nominated for the Goya Awards, but this time as a Supporting Actress.


2018 is another important year again, premieres at the San Sebastián Festival Journey to a Mother's Room , Celia Rico's debut film, in which Anna shares the scene with Lola Dueñas, and participates in the Movistar + series, Arde Madrid , created and directed by Paco León. These two roles are worth two recognitions at the 2019 ceremony of the Féroz Prize , being one of the main protagonists of the evening.


His latest projects include the recent Adú by Salvador Calvo (the highest grossing Spanish film of 2020) and the Mariano Barroso series for Movistar +: The Invisible Line ; as well as the still pending premiere Life was that of David Martín de los Santos.


The Huesca International Film Festival is sponsored by the Ministry of Education, Culture and Sports, the Government of Aragon, the Huesca Provincial Council, the Huesca City Council, the Anselmo Pié Foundation and with the collaboration of Obra Social "la Caixa ", TUHUESCA and the Institute Aragonese for Women.
