Festival start: 09 July 2021      Festival end: 11 July 2021

Part of a series of events and festivals promoting the inland rural areas of Spain. to be screened in the Axarquia region of Andalucia, southern Spain. Our base is the town of Canillas de Aceituno, located 50 minutes from Malaga airport, 25 minutes from the coast, and which sits at 650metres above sea level. Rural Affinity Film Festivals, are promoting short format films with a rural theme, everything from village life to agriculture, and anything in between. Serious, funny, documentary or fiction, cartoons and animation all are welcome.
The films will be no longer than 45 mins, and will have a varied rural theme each of the three evenings of the festival.
There are plenty of facilities in the towns, and accommodation is plentiful.

There will be modest prizes awarded in each category, plus an age group prize.

Each evening will be covered by local press, so plenty of exposure for independent film makers.
