It was another fantastic year for the Marbella International Film Festival which was once again held at the H10 Andalucia Plaza Hotel in Nueva Andalucia with screenings at the Cine Teatro Goya in Puerto BVanús.
This year’s winners received their awards at a Gala Dinner at the H10 Andalucia Plaza Hotel on Sunday October 2.
MarbellaAzul.com were at Teatro Goya in Puerto Banús on 22 September for the press conference introducing this year’s Marbella International Film Festival XI.
In attendance were Mac Chakaveh (MIFF director), Miguel Luna (Marbella’s Minister of Tourism), Jose Jaime Lopez (Teatro Goya) and Lucía Pérez Suárez (H10 Hotel Andalucía Plaza) – all of whom expressed their on-going support for the festival.
The long awaited opening night of the 10th Marbella International Film Festival took place on the roof terrace at Cine Teatro Goya in Puerto Banús on Wednesday 7 October 2015. MarbellaAzul.com was of course there to meet the guests and bring you some of the best images.
With splendid views of Marbella and the Mediterranean, the guests were made welcome with ice cold Cava and delicious canapés and Jo-Anne van Tuijl (the festival’s co-ordinator) and Mac Chakaveh (the festival’s director) and his fiancée Laura introduced us to fellow guests. Nicole King from RTV Marbella’s “Marbella Now” show, James Gomez, Steve Cline and Tim Knight were among the more familiar faces.
Sonrisa Studios is a wonderful space created and run by the owner Sherry Midas. It is located right in the centre of Marbella, on the corner of the new underground car park in Calle Notario Luis Oliver.
Sherry says “We want to provide a theatre group offering plays throughout the year for different nationalities that include comedy and dance – review shows just like the ones we used to enjoy years ago.” Sherry has lots of other great ideas for the future, including dinner shows in local hotels with jazz and flamenco. She also wants to show short films and adult storytelling. A previous one was a sell out.
A Press Conference for the Marbella International Film Festival 2015 was held today at the Teatro Goya in Puerto Banús, Marbella. MarbellaAzul.com was of course there to bring you the news and images.
Festival director Mac Chakaveh told us the festival is dedicated to independent film makers around the world and currently attracts around 1,000 films from over 50 countries. This is the tenth year it has been held in Marbella and the festival’s reputation is growing.
