Sep. 11, 2008by: Mike Catalano

Just yesterday, I let the dead cat out of the bag that Eric Red's 100 FEET (which co-stars our man, The Arrow) had just been made an official selection of the SITGES FILM FESTIVAL in Spain. Congrats again to everyone associated with the film.

And now today, we were given the exclusive list of the Festival's in-competition and out-of-competition Official Fantstic Selections as well as the two films that will open and close the festivities! There is literally a TON of unbelievable genre efforts and damn it, I really wish I had the time and the cash to fly to Spain for October 2nd through the 12th (which is how long Sitges will be running). Wait till you get a load of the flicks. Why the hell am I stalling?! Here you go:

CITY OF EMBER, CLOSING FILM

City of Ember, by Gil Kenan and starring Tim Robbins, Bill Murray and Martn Landau, will be the film closing this year's 41st edition.
