Spanish Academy Awards Affected By Proposed Anti-Piracy Legislation

The controversial Spanish anti-piracy law, so-called Sinde Act, went further and tainted Goya Awards. The country’s Film Academy president Alex de la Iglesia announced his plans to step down. Sinde Act, aimed at closing down file-sharing services, has resulted in strong opposition from the Spanish nation. In fact, last year the protests successfully led to the House of Representatives rejecting the draft of the law. However, the good news was short-lived, as last month the Spanish Government changed its mind and resurrected the bill with some cosmetic changes. Of course, this move outraged the public, as well as many artists and creators. Meanwhile, the most prominent opponent of the controversial legislation appeared to come from an unlikely corner.

Alex de la Iglesia, President of the Spanish Academy of Cinema, also criticized the piece of legislation named after Minister of Culture. He called the proposal “a law that doesn’t suit anyone,” and was so upset that announced that he would resign his position in protest the day after the Goya Awards.

As for the supporters of the legislation, including Javier Bardem, they were reportedly booed, but the outgoing President wasn’t honored with such greeting. Alex de la Iglesia, whose own movie “A Sad Trumpet Ballad” picked up only two awards of the 15 running, seems to forget about these achievements, speaking of how 25 years ago, when the Goya Awards was created, nobody in the entertainment industry could predict the effect the Internet would have on the business. Iglesia insists that the Internet is not the future, but rather the present – the way for thousands of subscribers to enjoy films and culture. He went further and called the web “the salvation of the Spanish cinema”. He added that Internet subscribers are actually the public that the industry have lost, since they never go to the cinema anymore but sit at their computers.

Iglesia pointed at the necessity to develop a new model for the movie industry, claiming that the business has a moral responsibility to the public. In fact, he is absolutely right, because it’s public that allows producers to make films, so it is owed respect and gratitude. The President of the country’s Academy of Cinema said that he wanted to use his parting speech to explain that the best thing is to be free to create.
