In the Andalusian capital, they are proud of having great tourist attractions, countless charming corners, and an outstanding cultural offer. Furthermore, the cultural program gets especially appealing in autumn, coinciding with the celebration of the Seville Festival, a leading film exhibition for industry professionals and film buffs.

From November 4-12, national and international productions will be presented in different venues of the city, the main site of the festival being the movie theaters of Nervión Plaza, as well as the emblematic Lope de Vega Theater.

Considered a reference festival for European cinema, the screenings in this event are organized around different sections: Official Section, The New Waves, and Extraordinary Stories.

In its 19th edition, the Seville Film Festival remains faithful to its motto: “This is European Cinema”, with a diverse and varied program that covers topics ranging from gender and LGTBI issues to very personal visions of the conflicts of the contemporary world, from Tunisia to Ukraine.

You will spot a striking installation consisting of giant clapper boards In different parts of the city that inform of the celebration of the festival and add some atmosphere inspired by the seventh art.

As it happens, Seville is a very cinematic city since it has also been a backdrop (or rather, one of the main characters!) of many series and films. You will recognize Betis Street and the Santa Cruz neighborhood in Jim Jarmusch’s The Limits of Control, an intergalactic Plaza España in Star Wars Episode II, the mythical Alfonso XIII hotel turned into a Californian villa in The Crown, and, of course, the Royal Alcázar gardens in Game of Thrones.

Film and culture lovers will enjoy the Andalusian capital to the fullest thanks to all the plans that Seville has to offer. Any opportunity is good to escape to this city since the weather and temperature are still warm and pleasant in autumn.

In Plácido y Grata, you can enjoy a quiet stay that will be a very inspiring experience.
