This year’s HSBC Spanish Film Festival line-up presents audiences with over 30 features – ranging from political thrillers to family-friendly comedies to insightful personal dramas, as well as key program strands including a focus on women in filmmaking and a comprehensive Carlos Saura retrospective.

It’s a carnival of current and classic cinema, and we’re giving readers in Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane the chance to attend for free.

One winner in each city will receive two sets of double passes (four tickets in total) to the festival, plus a $100 candy bar voucher for all your cinema snacking needs.

This year, gift them a dinner to remember with a Broadsheet Gift Card.


Film highlights include gritty Colombian drama The Kings of the World, foodie comedy Two Many Chefs, and heartwarming road trip Let the Dance Begin, plus there’s a series of special Mexican and Argentinian event screenings with wine, cocktails and themed snacks on offer.

And you won’t want to miss the gala closing night session of the iconic dance film Carmen, which comes with pre-screening drinks and a live flamenco performance. Olé!

This competition has closed. Winners of the competition are J.T, L.M and B.S.

Exclusive to Palace Cinemas, the 2023 HSBC Spanish Film Festival takes place nationally from June 14 to July 5 (June 20 to July 12 in Sydney). For more information visit the website.
