The XIV SGAE Julio Alejandro Film Screenplay Award will be given for the first time at Gijón/Xixón International Film Festival. This prestigious award is also a promotional platform for young talents, a tribute to the writer and playwright's memory Julio Alejandro (1906-1995), a close collaborator of Luis Buñuel.

In fact, he worked alongside the genius from Teruel in some of his most emblematic titles like Viridiana, Nazarín, Simón del desierto or Tristana. The SGAE created this award to promote the quality regarding the authors' creations for the audiovisual sector and foster launching cinematographic projects starting with the elaboration of screenplays.

A jury, chosen by the entity, integrated by authors and professionals from the sector, have selected three screenplays as finalists which will vie for the single and indivisible award consisting in 25,000 euros and two honour mentions of 3,000 euros.

The candidates are Empieza el baile by Marina Szerezevsky, Just Play by Jorge Guerrero and Cómo cazar un gnomo by Jorge Yúdice and Zebina Guerra.

Whoever finally wins the Julio Alejandro Award will be made public during the Inauguration Ceremony at the 55th edition of the Gijón/Xixón International Film Festival, which will take place tomorrow, November 17th, at Teatro Jovellanos, starting at 20:30.

The SGAE Julio Alejandro Film Screenplay Award is positioned within the collaboration process established between the SGAE and the Gijón/Xixón International Film Festival alongside other activities like the Carla Simón's Verano, 1993 Case Study, and the Pitching Session: SGAE Foundation's V Screenplay Writing Lab, with Isabel Coixet's participation at the Industry Days and the screening of the programme SGAE en Corto: Directoras de hoy.
