    This was the best Festival that our Film has screened at in Spain up to date! Ezekiel Montes, Susana Rojas and the entire team at the Festival Cine Marbella were fantastic! The location where they screen Films was at the prestigious "Cines Teatro Goya" and hospitality was next to none. The press they give to Filmmakers was the best we've seen yet, and overall communication by the organizers was definitely exemplary. Filmmakers, If you want to submit your work to a Festival who truly treats you like gold, then this is where you need to submit.

    !Larga vida al Festival Cine Marbella! !Olé¡
