Best Trailers for November 2020


Evolution Mallorca International Film Festival

Upcoming festival dates October 23 – 29, 2020.


Evolution, Mallorca International Film Festival (EMIFF) showcases innovative, provocative, socially-relevant filmmaking while positioning Palma de Mallorca, Spain as a global destination for a creative community.


EMIFF is the fastest growing competitive film festival in the Mediterranean.  Since its 2012 inception, the number of films screened has nearly doubled, and ticket sales have tripled.  In conjunction with its sister screening event in Hollywood, CA, EMIFF is becoming an international launching pad for promising new talent in all genres.


Raw. Fresh. Edgy. Hip. Distinctive.  These are the hallmarks of EMIFF filmmakers and films.  The selection committee and jury look for films that feature real, compelling stories, a unique point-of-view, and emotional range.  


EMIFF brings together up-and-coming filmmakers and established industry professionals in a variety of settings designed to bolster partnerships, production, and community.


The beautiful island of Mallorca is the awe-inspiring backdrop of EMIFF, and the island’s history, as well its young, entrepreneurial creative class, infuses the festival with a distinctive flair.  While Mallorcans are finding new ways to embrace and showcase their country’s rich cultural legacy, EMIFF attracts filmmakers and audiences to the island in celebration of the intersections between old and new, tradition and innovation, authenticity and experimentation.
