MADRID (AFP) - A galaxy of stars including John Travolta and Ewan McGregor will flock to the San Sebastian film festival which gets under way Friday in the northern Spanish coastal city.“This year is a bit special because it is the festival’s 60th anniversary. For this reason we have made a strong bet on major stars who can also bring glamour,” festival director Jose Luis Rebordinos told AFP.The festival, the oldest and most prestigious event of its kind in the Spanish speaking world, usually pays tribute to one major star each year with a Donastia Award in honour of their career. But this year organisers decided to award the prize to five major film figures - McGregor, Travolta, Oliver Stone, Tommy Lee Jones and Dustin Hoffman. “We wanted it to be people who are historical figures of cinema but who at the same time continue to make movies because we want to look at the past but at the same time we want to say that this festival, above all, has a future and thinks of the future,” said Rebordinos. All five stars who will receive a Donostia Award will see one of their recent works screened at the festival.Hoffman, 75, will present his directorial debut “Quartet”, which centres on a retirement home for opera singers and other musicians set in the English countryside. The movie will close the festival on September 29.
