JULIO SEMPERE visited Mini-Hollywood in Tabernas recently, ahead of next month’s Almeria Western Film Festival (AWFF).
With a distinguished career in the audiovisual industry, Sempere worked on many of the films shot in the Tabernas desert both as a producer and assistant director. These included For a Fistful of Dollars and For a Few Dollars More as well as Anthony and Cleopatra, Treasure Island, King of Kings, El Cid, and Patton.
Sempere who will be returning to Tabernas as one of the festival’s guests was accompanied by Mercedes Diaz and Cecilia Lopez, respective councillors for Tourism and Equality, Social Policies and Education at Tabernas Town Hall and the manager of the Oasys-Mini Hollywood theme park, Jose Maria Rodriguez.
The fifth edition of the AWFF will be held between October 9 and 11 and as in previous years has been organised by Tabernas Town Hall.
