This year the top prize at Spain’s San Sebastian Film Festival, was awarded to director James Franco who received a Golden Shell for The Disaster Artist

It’s a comedy bromance that tells the story of two film-makers working on what came to be regarded as one of the worst films ever made.

Argentinean Anahi Berneri became the second female director to win a Silver Shell for Alanis which tells the story of Maria, a Buenos Aires sex worker who is depicted as both a whore and a madonna, just as many societies have historically depicted women. Whilst it is presented as socialist realism, the film challenges male viewers to question how they regard women.
