Palma Congress Center, committed to Balearic cinema


Palma Congress Center is committed to local initiatives that strengthen Palma's international positioning as a European cultural destination, especially in low season.

For this reason, the Congress Cener has sponsored the VIII Evolution Mallorca International Film Festival (EMIFF), one of the fastest growing film festivals in Europe and the largest event for the Balearic cinema industry that, for seven days, has brought to the island a culturally diverse mix of films, short films, documentaries, music videos, children's films, experimental films, animated short films and virtual reality projects.

The closing ceremony of the festival was held at the Palma Congress Cener with the screening of ‘Pullman’, the latest film by the Balearic filmmaker Toni Bestard, and the awards ceremony of the festival.

In this edition, a total of 91 projects from 17 countries have participated in the festival that, this year, has given special attention to women and their role in cinema, the fight for gender equality and LGBTI rights. In addition, thanks to the MADE IN BALEARES section, this edition has served to highlight films produced and directed by the most talented filmmakers of the Balearic Islands.
