Cesc Gay's The People Upstairs (Sentimental) - an adaptation of Gay's own play about two pairs of neighbours - will have its world premiere at the festival and features Javier Cámara and Belén Cuesta in the cast. Uruguayan director Nacho Álvarez will make his feature film debut with My Heart Goes Boom! (Explota Explota), about a young singer and dancer trying to make her dreams come true in the grey Spain of the early Seventies, which is also having its world premiere.
The titles are part of the Radio Televisión Española (RTVE) sponsorship of the festival, which will also include the presentation of the first three episodes of the channel's period drama Inés of My Soul (Inés del alma mía), which tells the tale of a young girl from Extremadura who crosses the Atlantic in colonial times in search of her husband, featuring Elena Rivera and Eduardo Noriega in the cast.
