Spanish Film FESTIVAL DE MALAGA 2020

Festival de Malaga 2020 has begun on 21st August without public and without red carpet. Initially planned on March 13, the event was postponed to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic in Spain. Five months have passed and the country suffers a new escalation of infections, but the organization has resisted backing down and has increased health security measures, which has forced the suppression of much of the glamor and media commotion associated with this type of events.
