In 1998, the Málaga Film Festival was born in our city to promote the broadcasting and promotion of the Spanish films, to become a reference nationally and internationally, and to encourage the development of Málaga as an open and cultural city.
The Festival (which takes place between April 17th-26th this year) celebrates its eighteenth edition and inundates the city with art, movement and celebrities. It is easy to meet actors, directors and professionals of the Spanish cinema, enjoying the sparkling Malaga cultural life and showing up in bars, terraces and restaurants in downtown.
At Alcazaba Premium Hostel you will enjoy an epic location for a closer look of everything happening in the city these days. Just a few steps from the hostel, you will find the Albéniz Theater, one of the main sites for Festival's film screenings, plus a landmark building dating from 1945. If you wish to learn more about the theater's full film schedule, in addition to other Festival screenings, you can see them here (in Spanish, ALB is the cinema's symbol).
As if this were not reason enough, some of the events of the Festival may take place in the Rooftop Terrace of our boutique hostel and in Batik, our restaurant, so we will have professionals from the world of cinema and familiar faces among our customers and guests.
So, are you going to miss this all? Come to Alcazaba Premium Hostel and enjoy the Film Festival at the front row!
If you don’t want to miss out on any of the processions of the Malaga's Passion Week, check out some of the most important events that can be seen from our hostel and rooftop terrace.
Did you know the barmen in our Rooftop Terrace are among the best in Spain? Did you also know our Terrace is one of the few places in Malaga where you can enjoy amazing acrobatics and wonderful cocktails?
Just like every year, this March 19th we will be celebrating Father's Day in Spain, a very special date in the calendar for all those called José or Josefa (it is the Feast day of Saint Joseph) and for all those children and parents who wish to spend a wonderful family day out.
