Seville has achieved a strong growth of its cultural fabric, thanks to combining public investment, private development, talent and entrepreneurship. Its cultural offer has rocketed, providing a comprehensive and diverse programming throughout the whole year, including summer and Christmas. Along these past years culture has expanded throughout the city, including already traditional A-list events (Bienal and Cinema Festival), Murillo’s Year (its biggest cultural event since 92’ World Expo), new cultural equipment, the consolidation of Seville as the European capital of cinema and the impulse of young creators and the private sector. Hosting A-list cultural events such as the European Film Festival, Cadena SER’s Onda prizes ceremony and Spanish Goya Cinema Awards, has consolidated Seville’s strategy to complement its worldwide-known historic and artistic heritage. Seville, ready for the MTV EMAs!
FIBES, the Conference & Exhibition Centre of the city, is composed of two independent premises, completely different in terms of style and function that can be used as a whole and joint by an impressive footbridge.
