2011 Valencia Action & Adventure Film Festival to focus on 007

27-Mar-2011 • Event

What: Valencia Action and Adventure Film Festival
When: April 11-14th 2011

The 32nd Mostra de Valencia Action and Adventure Film Festival, which opens April 7, will put the spotlight on James Bond 007.

Running April 11-14, the event is entitled "Bond Before the Mirror," the event will analyse 007, asking, "what Bond has represented and [what makes] Bond a contemporary myth," said Mostra director Salomon Castiel. This homage to the greatest screen spy also includes an open-air recital of Bond title themes.

Launched in 1980 as an artfilm fest, the Mostra rebooted as an action-adventure film event at last October's edition.

Archivo 007 will attend the event, publishing exclusive interviews with the speakers, news from the day's events, as well as pictures and videos.
