E-VEEL, like it’s the FRU-ETS of the DEV-EEL.

The organisers have now released a first look at this year’s film program and, to be honest, we didn’t really have to read beyond the bits where ONLY GOD FOGIVES and UPSTREAM COLOR were mentioned. Count us in!

First look at the line-up for the 46th edition of the Sitges Film Festival

There’s the usual bumper collection from Asia too so all’s well with the world. This is where we begin to digest & regurgitate the festival program in an attempt to compile our own list of must-see films. We’ll keep you posted as to how we’re getting on so check back once in a while.

Sweet Rosemary’s Baby! Line ‘Em Up!

MoritzNot content with staging the coolest film festival on the planet the organisers have decided to also hold the coolest press conferences. To hell with a technically crisp media centre! Let’s just announce this year’s line-up preview from the bowels of the Moritz Brewery in Barcelona and then get tits deep in Cerveza!

We like how you roll Angel.

Rather amateurishly we’re unable to attend Wednesday’s conference but we’ll be sure to bring you all the line-up news as soon as Angel’s finished ordering the drinks.

It’s unlikely to be the complete film list this far in advance of the festival but Angel will no doubt have plenty to raise our glasses to.

Sitges News (Kind Of) – @mikehostench Script For Asmodexia Sells!

hostenchThe big news from Cannes is that one of the Top Men at the Sitges Film Festival, Mike Hostench, has sold a script for his film Asmodexia to new Spanish Low-Budget Horror company MS entertainment.

You can read a little more over at BLOODY DISGUSTING, I think it may well be too soon to expect a screening at this year’s festival, but who knows? Maybe we’ll get to see an early cut as a surprise midnight screening.

New Sitges Poster Released

BHkONNrCIAAuH8m.jpg largeAnd here it is, it appears to be referencing Rosemary’s Baby but there’s no word yet as to if that will be a running theme for the festival or not. It’s six short months today that the 2013 Sitges Film Festival opens it’s doors and here at Corridorstyle we can almost taste the Albondigas…

Keep checking back here for updates, speculation and film previews.

2012 Blog

In keeping with tradition we’ve finally managed to produce our “daily” festival Blog ……… a week late.

Although we’ve fully embraced the Twitterverse for our spontaneous outbursts we like to keep the Blog old skool, so it’s all note pads and ball-point pens while we’re in the trenches. If we’re being honest, this is more out of necessity than any affection for traditional journalism. As the Blog itself clearly highlights we unashamedly mix business with pleasure at the festival and operating anything more technical than a biro proves challenging (touch screen keyboards and the delirium tremens were not made for each other).

Anyone that’s sampled the tapas bar delights of Sitges will attest to the fact that that’s the right way to approach things at the festival so we’re comfortable with the fact that a little journalistic immediacy is sacrificed for an old fashioned good time.

So, without further ado, HEAD OVER HERE for the final print of our 2012 festival Blog

Sitges 2012 – The Corridorstyle Program

With a swift kick to the shins worthy of THE UNJUST the organisers dealt us an early blow by programming a few of our must-see films during the first two days of the festival, that is to say, the first two days BEFORE we arrive. If you’re listening Angel, could you hold back anything Korean until at least Saturday evening next year? K. Thanks.

We still get to swing at the majority of the program during the time we are there but, for the record, here are the ones we’re muttering about missing:

NAMELESS GANGSTER

DOOMSDAY BOOK

THE TASTE OF MONEY

HOLY MOTORS

RESERVOIR DOGS

CRAWL

Still, dusting ourselves down we’ve come up with the following program to see us through our Korean cold Kimchi. Some selections may fall foul of the team’s shameless drinking habits, others may get the nod from the subs bench if they catch our eye. Either way we’ve got a potential 26 film bonanza to keep us out of trouble and here are your runners and riders:
