Wim Wenders will be this year’s Honorary Award winner at 10th Evolution Mallorca International Film Festival

To celebrate 10 years of the Evolution Mallorca International Film Festival (EMIFF), held annually in the city of Palma, Mallorca, Benito Zambrano (Solas)’s Mallorca-set Pan de Limón con Semillas de Amapola (Lemon and Poppy Seed Cake) will kick-off the festivities and the seminal filmmaker Wim Wenders will be presented with the festival’s highest accolade; the Evolution Honorary Award.


The international film festival has been curated by Mallorcan native and Festival Director Sandra Lipski for the last 10 years as a physical, 7-day event for locals and global guests alike. It will this year take place from October 27th, when Zambrano’s film will screen to an invited audience at Palma’s historic opera house, Teatre Principal. The festival runs through November 2nd.


Wenders will be honoured over the opening weekend of the festival and a special screening of his prize-winning Until the End of the World (1991) will form part of the 10th anniversary programme.


Said Lipski of today’s announcement, “We are welcoming Benito Zambrano back to EMIFF exactly 10 years after his film La Voz Dormida launched our festival’s very first edition in 2012! To celebrate the festival’s birthday with a film shot almost entirely on the island and with a filmmaker we consider part of the EMIFF family is really special.


“It’s also an absolute thrill that Mr. Wim Wenders will be this year’s Honorary Award winner in what is a truly significant year for Evolution Mallorca International Film Festival; I can’t think of a better way to celebrate 10 years of ‘Bridging Cultures’ - which is what our festival passionately stands for - than to spotlight the inspirational and innovative work of Wim and to pay tribute to how his filmmaking has altered perspectives and pushed the needle.”


Previous guests of the festival and awards honourees at EMIFF have included acclaimed international filmmakers Asif Kapadia, Fernando Trueba, Marjane Satrapi, Tobias Lindholm and Paul Haggis; as well as actors Mads Mikkelsen, Danny Devitio, Ana de Armas, Angela Molina, Melissa Leo and Lena Heady, amongst others.


Award-winning Spanish screenwriter and film director Benito Zambrano commented, “The worst thing about commemorations is seeing how quickly time passes, and the best thing is being alive - and alive in the world of cinema. Being at EMIFF again is a sign that I can still do what I like the most: shoot films and share them with the public. For the latter, festivals are essential. Long live the Cinema and EMIFF!”


Said Wenders of today’s announcement: “I like the Evolution Mallorca International Film Festival for several reasons. I've had excellent shooting experiences on the island and have met really great and very professional local crews, with a friendly spirit, full of enthusiasm. I like the amazing natural light, the people and the many unique locations I have found there. And I support EMIFF because it vigorously promotes independent cinema. Festivals like this one have never played a more important role in creating bridges between peoples and cultures, bringing new talent to light and thus creating much needed new opportunities for young filmmakers”.


Further recipients of the festival’s 2021 Vision, Icon and Evolutionary awards - which pay tribute to filmmakers, performers and newcomers respectively - are expected to be announced in the coming weeks.


The full Evolution Mallorca International Film Festival 2021 programme will be announced via a press conference in Mallorca in early October. Additional festival events, including new networking sessions, panels and industry discussions and special events to celebrate 10 years of EMIFF are set to be announced regularly in the run-up to the festival.










In a small town located on the island of Mallorca, Anna and Marina, two sisters who were separated when they were teenagers, meet again to sell a bakery they've inherited from a mysterious woman they know nothing about. The two sisters have led very different lives. Anna has barely left the island and is unhappily married to a man she no longer loves. Marina travels the world working as a doctor for an NGO. As the sisters try to uncover the secrets hidden behind their enigmatic benefactor and her property, they are forced to confront old family disputes and make up for lost time. Pan de Limón con Semillas de Amapola is based on the best-selling novel by Cristina Campos.

A major figure in German New Wave cinema, Wim Wenders is a three-time Oscar nominated and BAFTA, Palme d’Or, Golden Lion and Silver Bear-winning director, playwright, author and photographer. Some of his most recognised and highly praised works include Paris, Texas (1984), Wings of Desire (1987) and documentaries Buena Vista Social Club (1999) about a group of Cuban musicians and Pina (2011) about the neo-expressionist dance pioneer Pina Bausch.


Wenders is a member of the advisory board of Martin Scorsese’s World Cinema Foundation and has been the president of the European Film Academy in Berlin since 1996. The Wim Wenders Foundation was established in 2012 to bring together Wenders’ cinematic, photographic, artistic and literary works and to make it permanently accessible to the public.





As the Evolution Mallorca International Film Festival enters its 10th edition, EMIFF is now recognised as one of the fastest-growing film festivals in Europe, using international film to shape a creative community, allowing independent filmmakers to feel inspired, to network and thrive in this idyllic Mediterranean island paradise.


For seven days and six nights, EMIFF’s program is curated to showcase a culturally diverse, inclusive and provocative mix of feature films, short films, documentaries, music videos, children’s films, experimental films and animation.


Evolution Mallorca International Film Festival has a clear mission statement; BRIDGING CULTURES – BRIDGING PEOPLE.  Known as a welcoming hub for networking, EMIFF brings together the brightest local and international minds in cinema in Mallorca’s buzzing and the culturally rich city of Palma.


With competitive screenings unfolding at the most striking island locations, EMIFF is an ideal place for indie filmmakers to rub shoulders with industry professionals at the festival’s Producers Club, its Pitch Forum and regular workshops, with the opportunity to win prizes worth up to 25,000€ across the 13 categories of the festival programme from local production company MN Studios.


EMIFF’s Made In Baleares section presents films produced and directed by the most talented filmmakers from the Balearic Islands. Other programmes include Evolution Edge - films by first/ second-time directors with a distinct and avant-garde vision and Wake Up Europe - films and documentaries highlighting stories from in and around Europe.


The 2019 festival curated over 100 screenings, networking events, panel talks, Island excursions and master classes, attracting over 4,000 guests from over 30 countries. 2020 saw a hybrid festival take place, with several elements online and made even more accessible to a wider pool of international industry talent.


EMIFF is proud to have been one of MovieMaker’s “TOP 50 Film Festivals Worth The Entry fee” four years in a row, as well as appearing on the 100 Best Reviewed Film Freeway List for 13 months in a row, ranking in the top 1.5% of more than 8,000 film festivals and creative markets around the world.
