A celebrity visitor on Majorca: the three-time Oscar winner and director Oliver Stone was in attendance at a promotional event for the “Mallorca International Film & Media Festival” (MIFF). This festival will be taking place for the first time on the Mediterranean island in 2016.
Oliver Stone has landed cinema hits around the world with politically controversial movies including “Platoon”, “JFK” and “Wall Street”. Engel & Völkers Majorca Southwest sponsored both the press conference and the evening gala with 60 guests, which the “MIFF” held for its star guest. Mr. Stone told journalists why Majorca is the ideal venue for an international film festival. Licence Partner Hans Lenz commented as follows: “It is a pleasure to be supporting this initiative and it is overwhelming to see such a strong reaction to the ‘MIFF’ from the local population and from local government. A clear message that Majorca is ready to play a role on the international film scene.” Engel & Völkers invited existing clients and prospective new clients to an evening gala which took place in an exclusive villa for which E&V is currently looking for a new owner. “Our clients are very excited that Majorca will soon be holding its own film festival. The fact that this has even caught the attention of a Hollywood star like Oliver Stone is the icing on the cake. For our clients, the ‘MIFF’ is set to boost Majorca’s already high lifestyle factor even further,” Hans Lenz concluded.
