Links round-up, 24th Februrary 2011

Some things that have been in the news in the past week.

Above is the first teaser poster for Almodóvar's La piel que habito, which was released last week by Agustín Almodóvar on facebook, and picked up by El País on their film blog Versión muy original.
According to IMDB, the film has a UK release date of 18th November.

Now that Álex de la Iglesia has stepped down as President of the Spanish Academy of the Arts and Cinematographic Sciences, attention has started to turn to the question of who his replacement might be. Fernando Trueba (currently promoting Chico y Rita in Spain) thinks that Alejandro Amenábar should be the next Academy President (but managed to stir up the Ley Sinde / Álex de la Iglesia debate again, here). While Bigas Luna has thrown his own hat into the ring.

That's it in terms of links this week, but I will be posting something about Pa negre (Villaronga, 2010) tomorrow.
