The Marbella International Film Festival brings together artists and their films from all corners of the globe to display their talents to the commercial world. The Festival is growing in stature and receives continuous worldwide accolade, recognition and support for its contribution to the arts. We are delighted to now be entering our 12th Marbella International Film Festival, to be held 4th to 8th October 2017.

The Festival has expanded considerably since it’s launch in 2006 and we now have additional collaboration and association with the Marbella Town Hall and Tourist Board, Marbella Film Office and the Andalucia Film Commission. During the Festival we host five glamorous evening events with many networking opportunities, culminating in the grand Gala Awards Ceremony.
