The Málaga Film Festival extends its reach to Latin America

- Having reached its 20th edition, the gathering is making the leap to include “Spanish-language film”, thus making room for movies produced on the other side of the Atlantic in its official section

The Málaga Film Festival extends its reach to Latin America
Nieve negra by Martín Hodara

On Thursday 2 March, the presentation of the programme of the 20th edition of the Málaga Film Festival was held at the Spanish Film Academy in Madrid. Until last year, the gathering’s title made specific reference to “Spanish film”, but later this month (17-26 March), it will open up to movies made in Latin America, either with or without a Spanish co-producer. This novelty had already been announced in 2016, and it sees the Territorio Latinoamericano section expand to merge with the Official Competition section.

, will play host to the 11th edition of the Spanish Screenings – Málaga de Cine on 20, 21 and 22 March, organised by FAPAE (the Confederation of Spanish Audiovisual Producers) and intended to facilitate the international sales of Spanish movies. Likewise, on 23 and 24 March, a Documentary Cinema conference will be held in the University of Málaga’s rector’s office; the event will focus on transnationality and the two-way relationship between Europe and Latin America.
