In 2013, Spain was the third-biggest market in Europe (beaten only by Germany and Italy) for French films. On average, more than 50 French features are distributed there every year, and some French exhibitor groups also have some financial interests there. For example, MK2 recently purchased the Cinesur cinema network in Andalusia (read the news).
