If the approach of beach season isn’t enough to draw you to the southern beaches of Spain, then maybe Málaga’s Film Festival will. Presenting feature-length and short films, and also lots of documentaries, the event is in the center of Spain’s film industry and has something for everyone.
This year, the 21st edition of the festival, that takes place from April 13 to April 22, includes a special event. Film director Guillermo del Toro, who will also receive the Málaga SUR Festival Prize, gives a master class on Monday, April 16 at the Cervantes Theater in Málaga. This is a unique opportunity to learn from the director that has just obtained what nobody did, before: that his Form of Water rises with the Golden Lion of Venice, the Golden Globe and the Oscar for the best director (and the best film).
Málaga Film Festival was born in 1998 and in each of its editions it has aimed to achieve a series of objectives, including promoting the dissemination and promotion of Spanish cinematography, becoming a national and international reference in the field of cinematographic events. The Festival, which this year celebrates its twenty-first edition, contributes powerfully to the development of cinema in Spanish by presenting its best documentaries, short films and motion pictures in addition to paying tribute to different personalities of the film industry and organizing numerous cycles, exhibitions and parallel activities.
