Edinburgh Spanish Film Festival

Edinburgh Spanish Film Festival is delighted to be back in cinemas, welcoming film fans to its ninth edition, with in-person screenings and events in Spanish during October and November.

The 2022 festival has a vibrant and varied programme, offering something for all ages and tastes. We’re delighted to be screening two standout titles from the programme at GFT: the powerful, Goya-awarded Maixabel plus a Q&A with director Icíar Bollaín, and La Voluntaria, a touching drama about a retired doctor volunteering in a Greek refugee camp, with a special introduction.
