The Film Festival is back!

If you like to the movies then this is good news for you! On October 27th, 28th and 29th (Monday-Wednesday) the tickets cost only €2,90 and one might ask: is there any good reason why you shouldn't go? You can watch a variety of films ranging from Spanish to Hollywood productions. And what's even better, all the movies are in Spanish which means that you can practice your listening and comprehension skills!

The film festival started in 2009 and is held biannually. The latest edition took place on March 31 - April 2 and was one of the most successful so far. Originally, the festival was proposed by various agencies related to the film industry to attract people back to the movie theaters. As we all know, this cultural activity has been severely affected by a large increase in piracy and ticket prices in Spain. Thus, in addition to having a good time at the movies, you can support the industry, which employs thousands of people in Spain.

To be able to attend the festival, you must register online at Then, you will receive an email including a promotional code. Using the code you can buy your ticket either at the cinema or online.  When you go to see the movie do not forget to bring the promotional code together with your ID as you will need to show it before entering the theatre.
