Moreover, RTVE, the Spanish Radio and Television Corporation, a great supporter of the festival, will continue recording, editing and broadcasting the symphonic concerts either regionally, nationally or internationally.
Furthermore, in May 2017, FIMUCITÉ and its director, Diego Navarro, will gain special prominence in the 10th Krakow Film Music Festival.
