Sevilla International Film Festival


Years running: 22 (since 2001)

Sevilla International Film Festival

International Film Festival in Sevilla.


The festival concentrates on European Cinema in general. It is rather small but has very attractive prices for those distributors bringing their films to the festival or picking up awarded films here. That is why most of the leading distributors use the festivals to launch their films here rather than in Valladolid, which is a more important festival but does not offer any financial support for the Spanish distributors.
