WE are used to criminals on the Costa del Crime and now they will be taking over the big screens at the Marbella Film Festival.

Kris Marshall from Death in Paradise, Craig Fairbass from The Bank Job and Jason Flemyng from Lock Stock and 2 Smoking Barrels are among the celebrity guests set to strut their stuff on the red carpet at this year’s Marbella International Film Festival (MIFF).

Among the films making their international premiere debuts will be the crime thriller Rise of the Foot Soldier 4 which was shot on the Costa del Sol last year.

The cast includes Terry Stone, Emily Wyatt, Jessica Wright, Nick Nevern and Andy Loveday – the film’s director.

Other stars set to attend screenings for the 14th annual event include Gavin and Stacy actor Larry Lamb.

Hundreds of film fans are expected to descend on Marbella for the festival which runs from October 2 – 6.

The five-day movie extravaganza will see 30 independent films shown at the Teatro Goya in Puerto Banus.

This year’s films have been sourced from Spain, the UK, the USA, Switzerland, Brazil, Mexico, Ukraine, Turkey, Argentina, China, Poland, India, Paraguay and Germany. 

The event should be the ‘biggest yet’ according to Festival Director Mac Chakaveh.

He said: “There are at least three world premieres this year and Marbella’s Film Festival is now becoming the event everyone talks about.”
