TRIBUTES

You are here:

With the City of Huesca Award, Huesca International Film Festival recognizes the bright professional career of young figures of the world cinema which, in addition, have a promising professional future. It has been awarded since 1991, and in 2018 the Huesca Film Festival Foundation, along with the Festival’s management team and the filmmaker Carlos Saura, decide to change the nomenclature of the prize to denominate Carlos Saura City of Huesca, with the approval of the director. Carlos Saura, born in Huesca, has one of the most awarded international filmographies, one of the names with capital letters in the history of the seventh art and thus intends to pay a sincere tribute to the city festival that saw him born.
