Besides various other interesting sidebars, like the one dedicated to documentaries and Zonazine (featuring the most fiercely independent and alternative titles), the 22nd edition of the festival will continue bolstering its industry section, christened MAFIZ (Málaga Festival Industry Zone): it comprises six events, namely Spanish Screenings – Málaga de Cine, MAFF (Málaga Festival Fund & Coproduction Event), Latin American Focus – with Argentina as the guest country – Málaga Docs, Málaga Work in Progress and Málaga Talent, all of which are intended to strengthen Spanish and Latin American film productions.

The entire programme of the 22nd Málaga Film Festival, as well as a comprehensive overview of activities and other information, can be found here.
