From 27 October to 3 November in Donostia/San Sebastián you'll have a great time, come and celebrate this 34th edition of the Horror and Fantasy Film Week!

This year the leitmotiv of the Week is witches. Hence the poster, which stars Itziar Ituño as an unconventional sorgina. In addition, during this edition, you will be able to enjoy the exhibition Bruixes - Sorginak - Brujas. Illustrated coven.
Also, related to the theme, the book Beso negro: Brujería, cine y cultura pop, written by Elisa McCausland and Diego Salgado, has been published.

Continuing with the fantasy that will flood the city during these days, Donostia Kultura and the Japan Foundation present the exhibition Icons of Japanese fantasy cinema - Aguilar-Haraguchi Collection, which you can visit until 4 November at the Okendo Cultural Centre. A spectacular collection of posters and film programmes that traces the rich history of fantasy in Japan.

And why not, between film and film or exhibition and exhibition you can take the opportunity to take a walk along the river, which is beautiful in autumn tones, and enjoy seeing the charming (and perhaps some haunted) Belle Époque style palaces...

Whatever you do, Donostia/San Sebastián is going to be scary.
