The Málaga Film Festival or Málaga Spanish Film Festival (FMCE)[1] is an annual film festival held in Málaga, Spain. The festival was established to promote Spanish cinema and help disseminate information about Spanish films.

The festival has numerous screenings of the most important Spanish film releases for the previous year, including documentaries and short films. It has awards for the best films of the year as well as honorary awards. The main prize is the Biznaga de Oro for best picture. Other awardees, such as "Critic's choice" and "Best direction" receive Biznagas de Plata. In addition the festival hosts panel discussions and round-tables on topics of current interest in Spanish cinema.

The first festival was held on March 9 through 17th of 1998. The guest of honor was Fernando Fernán Gómez, and the retrospective was dedicated to Montxo Armendariz. Although originally the festival was held anytime from March through June, since 2008 it has always been held in April.
