Malaga Festival, the Celebrated Festival of Spanish Film



Malaga Festival, the Celebrated Festival of Spanish Film

Since its founding in 1998, the Malaga Spanish Film Festival (Festival de Málaga de Cine Español or FMCE) has focused on the dissemination and promotion of Spanish cinema. The immense work carried out by the team behind the Festival has turned it into a national and international benchmark, with an excellent reputation, which contributes to Malaga's cultural development.

Malaga Spanish Film Festival, which this year celebrates its twenty-third edition, contributes to the development of Spanish-language cinema, pays tribute to personalities from the film industry and organises cycles, exhibitions and other activities as part of its programme – a programme that always finds room for education, creativity and innovation.

After its postponement in the month of March, a unique edition of the Malaga Spanish Film Festival began on Friday 21st August and will last until Sunday 30th. The official section of this important Spanish-language film event maintains most of the titles planned for March as well as incorporating some new ones. It combines experience and young promise with a firm commitment to usefulness for the Spanish and Latin American audiovisual industry.

This year's 23rd Malaga Spanish Film Festival is being held under a wide variety of health and hygiene measures, ranging from general considerations to the correct use of common spaces and the regulations applicable to the management of audiences and guests. This is an exceptional situation, in which film takes precedence over the social agenda.

Over these days, the city becomes the epicentre of Spanish film, in a year when the film industry needs everyone's support. This very different Festival can be followed through a number of digital channels, with the aim of reaching the greatest number of people. Consult all the information on the website
