Marbella International Film Festival Summer Program

The Marbella International Film Festival this summer (23rd to 29th August) offers some of the outstanding works from the past festivals, free of charge for the pleasure of the general public. The 2010 Marbella International Film Festival is scheduled for 15th to 17th October.

Organised in collaboration with the Town Hall of Marbella, the Marbella Casino, the Hotel H10 Andalucia Plaza and Target Events, a week of free movie screening has been organised in Antonio Banderas plaza in Puerto Banus, each evening starting at 9:30 pm.

The award winning films from the past festival years scheduled for screening this August are from Spain, UK, USA, Russia, Germany, Italy, Iran, Afghanistan, Argentina, Denmark, Ireland and India. There are short films, animation, documentaries and feature films in the original version with English or Spanish subtitles.

The video below was for the Marbella Film Festival for 2009 (but is well made and very interesting and informative anyway)

Objectives of Marbella International Film Festival

The festival, which is now in its 5th year, has two main objectives. The first is to encourage and help independent filmmakers through “New World Trust” and to offer them a platform to expose their talents.

The second is to promote the city of Marbella and its culture in the events held throughout the year in various worldwide cities such as London, Miami, Los Angeles, Cannes and Moscow.
