I just wanted to thank you for a very enjoyable time and great festival. It was lovely to meet you and some other very nice and interesting people.
The festival itself was the best one I’ve been to. The standard of films was right up there and combined with the organisation of events, the great welcome you all gave the filmmakers and how we were all treated and looked after by you guys, made it an unforgettable experience for me. As I mentioned, the Marbella Film Festival punches well above its weight in terms of venues, standards of films and just about everything else….and we also get the glamour. Brilliant!
Meeting the other filmmakers was truly inspirational and I have made quite a few new friends and colleagues, some of whom I hope to work with in the future if the opportunity arises.
It is festivals such as this and people such as yourselves who are vital to independent filmmakers; you give us a high profile and a platform second to none, on which we can have our work seen and although this may seem like a thankless task, I can assure you that from my perspective and many others, that it is anything but.
I truly hope and believe that the Marbella Film Festival will go from strength to strength and become one of The big festivals, you certainly have all the ingredients for it to do so.
Many, many thanks for a wonderful experience and please do stay in touch.

I’ve attended the Marbella International Film Festival several times with 2 short films PICTURE PERFECT and most recently; DAISY. I have seen the festival grow over the years to become a very Important and respected cultural event in Spain.
The festival is run by a team of programmers who care about the films they invite to screen. The overall quality of the films which they screen are high end and showcase trailblazing talent for the audiences to discover. Myself and the filmmakers were all very well looked after by Mac and his colleagues.
In addition to showcasing quality productions, the festival offers an abundance of networking opportunities within its intimate setting. During the day filmmakers are at workshops & screenings and at night we are all up until the early hours bonding over cocktails.

Hi this is YOSHI I had great time in Marbella and got a lot of new friends
Great networking as well as opportunity to screen and promote my film, thanks a lot
Thank you so much for MIFF that was really nice!
I have to tell you: something amazing happened on the Marbella festival. I’ve met the love of my life there…! We fell madly in love, met afterwards in his country and mine and we decided we want to live our lives together. By the end of this month we are going to live together in Amsterdam. He is from Spain and his name is Fran, his short film was nominated as well.
I would love to have some pictures from him as well, so we have a small token of the festival where we actually met ;-)
Thank you so much,
All the best to MIFF team,
