Spanish Cinema Series


This series celebrates the 25th anniversary of the Goya Awards and the best film of 2010. It is made up of a souvenir sheet and a stamp.

The Academy of Arts and Cinematographic Sciences of Spain awards the Goyas annually in acknowledgement of the best professionals in the film industry in the different categories. These awards were created at the initiative of a group of renowned professionals who wished to level the Spanish film industry with other countries such as Hollywood's Oscars, Berlin's Bear, French Cesar Awards or the Lion of Venice.

This year to commemorate the silver anniversary of the Goya awards the ceremony has taken place for the first time in the Teatro Real in Madrid where the 28 statuettes were awarded to the best professionals from a variety of technical and artistic disciplines. The honorific Goya was awarded in recognition and tribute to a lifetime career.

The souvenir sheet is devoted to 25th Anniversary of the Goya Awards, featuring the winners of the Honorific Goya in these 25 years. The names of producers, writers, cinematographers, film directors, actors and actresses are depicted with representative elements of the film.

The Goya to the best film has been awarded to Pa negre, directed by Agusti Villaronga. Filmed in Catalonian, it tells the story of the hardships of the post war years in rural Catalonia. The emotions and feelings of the characters of those who fought in the losing side of the war and its consequences are seen through the eyes of a child. The film won nine Goyas including the Goya to the best director, best actress, cinematographer, supporting actress, best new actor and actress, among others.
