Evolution! Mallorca International Film Festival
Mallorca, Spain / October 23-29, 2019 / evolutionfilmfestival.com / S, V, P
With a stunning setting, even by the standards of film festivals, Mallorca celebrates its goals of “Bridging Cultures—Bridging People.” In 2018, winners spanned Europe and had U.S. winners such as Juliana Schatz-Preston and Joshua Bennett’s “Los Comandos,” shortlisted for an Oscar and picked up by Spanish TV network IB3. Feature filmmakers receive three nights in a four-star hotel. The Evolutionary Island Award is for features set on the Balearics. The festival is big on Spanish premieres and is a good place to connect with European distributors, which for 2018 included Caballo Films, BBC, and ARTE.
