British directors Julien Temple and Harry Mcqueen will compete in the Official Selection at this year's San Sebastian Film Festival, which runs from September 18 to 26.
Harry Mcqueen's Supernova stars Colin Firth and Stanley Tucci as two old friends whose unique focus lies in spending time together when one of them is diagnosed with early-onset dementia. Temple's Crock of Gold: A Few Rounds With Shane McGowan considers the life and work of The Pogues frontman.
A further three films have been announced. French director Danielle Arbid's adaptation of Annie Ernaux's novel Passion Simple about a woman who loses her head over a Russian diplomat will compete alongside Argentinian Eduardo Crespo's We Will Never Die (Nosotros Nunca Moriremos), which tells the story of a trip undertaken by a boy and his mother to the village where his elder brother recently died. Meanwhile, Matt Dillon's documentary The Great Fellove (El Gran Fellove) - chronicling the musical career of Cuban scat singer and showman Francisco Fellove and the recording of his last album - will feature as a special screening.
