Now in its 13th year, ¡Viva! celebrates the best in Spanish and Latin American cinema. This years programme is packed with great films including Fabián Bielinsky's final movie, the noir thriller The Aura and Hitchcockian thriller The Uncertain Guest. This year the festival has also teamed up with Soda Pictures to release a selection of the films - past and present on DVD. The festival runs at Manchester Cornerhouse cinema from March 15 to 25, before touring the country.
