Marbella Film Festival 2017 Winners and Nominees

Last year’s festival was a huge success and it was extremely difficult to decide the winners at the 2017 festival, but after much deliberation we finally managed to narrow it down to the chosen few.  Click here to see the full list of winners and nominees from last year’s event.

We’d like to congratulate all film makers, cast and crew on their participation in 2017, and to thank everyone else who made the festival such a success. The quality was truly outstanding, right across the board.
