Spanish Screenings on Tour is one of the four pillars of Spanish Screenings XXL alongside Spanish Screenings Content (Malaga Film Festival), Spanish Screenings: Financing & Tech (San Sebastian Film Festival) and Spanish Screenings 360, a programme of activities running throughout the year which also includes the creation of the virtual promotion and business platform PLATFO.
