WITH the Marbella International Film Festival taking place from September 28 to October 2, there will be a temporary suspension of the regular Oscar Night presentations at the H10 Andalucia Plaza with all of the movie interest shifting to the Teatro Goya in Puerto Banus for those five days.
All of the programme information can be seen on www.marbellafilmfestival.com or by picking up a programme at the theatre or the H10 Andalucia Plaza. The cost of tickets is €5 a showing (including a series of short films grouped together) €10 for the premieres or €30 euros will allow holders to attend all of the showings and the parties with tickets available from Teatro Goya.
Of special interest to many will be the Saturday night premiere of Golden Years, the story of a group of pensioners who lose their pensions when the bank goes bankrupt and so decide to rob banks themselves. The cast is made up of some of the great British character actors such as Bernard Hill, Simon Callow and Phil Daniels plus a very strong supporting cast and one of the screen writers is the well-known TV presenter Nick Knowles.
The premier will commence at 7pm on Saturday October 1 and afterwards, ticket holders are invited to visit La Sala Banus for a cocktail party at which many of the stars of the film will be present, just remember to keep your ticket stub in order to obtain admittance.
The festival chooses its films from hundreds of submitted films and all programming, times and film storylines are on the festival website www.marbellafilmfestival.com.
