Málaga Festival Fund Co-production Event (MAFF) / About Us

STRATEGIC FRAMEWORK


Call for entries is opened for the Malaga Festival Fund & Coproduction Event that will take place within the framework of the Malaga Festival on March 16, 17, 18, 19 & 20, 2020.
First edition of this event was strategically designed by the Malaga Festival together with a team of experts and the European Film Funds to foster and promote international coproduction of contents in Spanish.

Thus creating a communication space for European and Latin American film producers; a coproduction event and a market. Main objective is fostering the artistic enrichment of projects, international coproduction, to increase possibilities of funding and to gather the most important international film funds in one place, Malaga city.

MAFF launched Social MAFF in 2019, a series of key proposals for the development of a Latin American cinematography with contents aimed to raise social awareness, to reflect on the global changes we are looking for and to generate inclusive and sharing societies.

We are absolutely convinced that if more countries could access these contents it will be the perfect wakeup call in aras of preserving life and the best social development.
