November of cinema with the Benalmádena International Short Film and Alternative Film Festival

Heir to the mythical Semana Internacional del Cine de Autor, which disappeared at the end of the 80's, every November in our town there is a film festival that has brought to Benalmádena international figures of the Seventh Art such as Guillermo del Toro or Richard Lester, and stars of our cinema from Loles León to José Mota, passing through José Sazatornil, José Luís Cuerda or Emilio Gutiérrez Caba.

For a few days, Benalmádena is at the forefront of international cinema with a not only cultural event in which the whole municipality is involved. During the event, conferences, specialised forums and, naturally, numerous films are shown in the halls of the Casa de la Cultura, making Benalmádena the perfect getaway for film lovers.



Benalfest 2021 will be held with the public standing.

It is required to wear a face mask at all times except for consumption. With day tickets, it will not be possible to leave the site once you have entered.

The festival site is the Parque de Los Nadales, situated on a beautiful cliff.

Here, the waves of the sea roll in and you can enjoy magnificent views of the typical Andalusian white village houses.

Festival Internacional de Navidad

International Christmas Festival

Every year in mid-December the International Christmas Festival is held in Benalmádena. For three days, the Plaza de la Mezquita is filled with food stalls and typical products from different countries and cultures.

A highlight is the visit of the "real" Santa Claus, as well as children's entertainment and musical performances, in a cheerful and festive atmosphere. Every year, the International Christmas Festival grows in popularity and new countries take part. Enjoy the Christmas party as they do in more than 15 countries, around the world in three days without leaving Benalmádena.

A spectacle not to be missed.
