Its back to the desert of Tabernas for the 2013 Almeria Western Film Festival, the first European festival dedicated exclusively to the western genre, that will, be held October 2, 3, 4 and 5, 2013 in the mythical town of Tabernas, the reference point of western cinema worldwide.
The AWFF is an attractive festival, original and unique. With a unique place in the national and European film industry. The genre as well as 'classic among classics' and 'pure cinema', is continually revitalizing and updating itself. It is a source of inspiration and ongoing review by filmmakers for both young and emerging filmmaking.
The festival remains true to its mission to promote the western genre through its film competition, and to promote filming in the province and, above all, put on the map Almeria Tabernas through their natural settings in which hundreds of movies were filmed of the mythical genre in the 1960s and 1970s.
The western is more than cowboy movies and landscapes of the Far West. It is also a form of storytelling adapted to the XXI century, in full force with cutting-edge urban backgrounds.
