THE 13th Marbella International Film Festival got off to a great start with a cocktail party at the Teatro Goya in Puerto Banus on the Costa del Sol yesterday (October 10).
The ever-busy organiser Mac Chakaveh has attracted a number of high-quality filmmakers to this event that runs until Sunday, October 14 with a selection of feature films and shorts all competing to win one of the prestigious awards.
One of the main guests last night was H.E. Koula Sophianou the Ambassador for Cyprus to Spain and she spent some time speaking to many of the guests who following the party went in to watch a screening of American produced thriller Closure followed by a series of short films.
