The cinematic journey of the 16th annual Cine Las Americas International Film Festival will take you to more than 30 countries, from Canada to Colombia, in six days. The festival voyage, which starts Tuesday, departs from Spain, with “Blancanieves” (“Snow White”), and ends in Paraguay with the movie thriller “7 Cajas” (“7 Boxes.”)
Receiving more film entries than ever before, Cine Las Americas kicks off this year’s festival at the Stateside Theatre with Pablo Berger’s uniquely Spanish approach to the Brothers’ Grimm fairy tale. “Blancanieves,” a contemporary silent, black-and-white film, is set in 1920s Seville, where Snow White’s father is a famous bullfighter. She escapes her malicious stepmother and joins a group of bullfighting dwarves.
