Marbella International Film Festival opens
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.
Victor Pérez (director of the short film “Another love” which was being shown later in the evening) told us all about his upbringing in Cordoba and his acting career which began with Antonio Banderas’s film “Summer rain”. We then met Elena T DeVivo (executive producer) and Bobby B Grubic (director) whose short film “The Parting Shot” was also being shown later that evening.
So, after meeting the guests and discussing this year’s films with them, we all headed for the cinemas downstairs where we had to choose to see the feature film “Far too far” or a series of short films. We chose the short films which included “Antivirus” from Russia, “Party for two” from Spain, “Another love” from the UK, “The parting shot” from the USA, “Lost in escapade” from Georgia and “A Beat in the Forest” an animation from Israel.
All in all, an interesting evening with fascinating people!!!
