Second prize

Without big surprises the Biznaga de Oro to the Best Spanish Film It went to the great favorite, Second Prize, by Isaki Lacuesta and Pol Rodríguez. A film that also won awards for Best Direction and Editing (Javi Frutos).

Granada, late 90s. In the midst of artistic and cultural effervescence, an indie music group is experiencing its most delicate moment: the bassist breaks up with the band looking for her place outside of music and the guitarist is immersed in a dangerous spiral of self-destruction. Meanwhile, the singer faces a complicated process of writing and recording his third album. Nobody knows that this album will forever change the music scene of the entire country. This (not) it is a movie about the Planets.

Second prize

The little loves

The Little Loves, by Celia Rico, has achieved the Special Jury Prize and the Silver Biznaga for best supporting actress for Adriana Ozores. If you saw "Journey to a Mother's Room", the director's last film and you fell in love with it, I am sure that like me you will want to see her new work that once again focuses on relationship of a mother and daughter.

Teresa changes her vacation plans to help your mother, who has suffered a small accident. Mother and daughter will spend a very suffocating summer together, in which they will not be able to agree on even the most trivial things. However, the forced coexistence will stir more than expected and on the summer nights Teresa will experience revealing moments with her mother.

The house

Another of the favorite Spanish films of this edition of the Malaga Festival, La casa, won the awards for Best Screenplay (Alex Montoya and Joana Martínez Ortueta), Best Music (Fernando Velázquez) and the Audience Award. This film directed by Álex Montoya and starring, among others, David Verdaguer, Óscar de la Fuente, Luis Callejo and Olivia Molina is a adaptation of the graphic novel by Paco Roca.

After the death of his father, three brothers meet at the family home where they spent their childhood summers. It's time to decide what to do with the home, which will be more difficult than expected. With a bittersweet tone sprinkled with humor, The House tells us about family, inheritance and the inexorable passage of time, all under the gaze of the house as a witness. Based on the graphic novel of the same name by Paco Roca, winner of an Eisner Award in 2020.


Andrea Jaurrieta's Nina took the Special Prize from the Critics Jury composed of Alberto Rey, Laia Portaceli, María Esther Beltrán, Matías Rebolledo and Moisés Rodríguez. This highlighted the film that "bravely talks about a sensitive issue in our society, denouncing sexual abuse and complicit and concealing silences, with a very elaborate narrative and cinematographic structure that recovers the archetypes of classic cinema in the form of a powerful modern western, in which color and music play a prominent role, as a fundamental part of the film. Furthermore, Nina is full of cinephile references, with constant nods to classic cinema, brilliantly captured by the director in powerful dialogues and scenes.

Nina decides to return to the coastal town where she grew up, with a shotgun in his bag and one objective: to take revenge on Pedro, a famous writer to whom the town now pays tribute. The reunion with his place of origin, with his memories of the past and with Blas, a childhood friend, will make him reconsider if revenge is his only option.
