And the truth is that the presentation included a very appetizing program of concerts as well as a good cast of guests: Trevor Jones, David Shire, Tyler Bates, José Nieto, Mac Quayle, Neal Acree, Víctor Reyes and Rupert Gregson-Williams (some more names are still pending confirmation).


It is good news the announcement in advance of guests and concerts of the festival, being this symptom of the growth and strength of the MOSMA festival, since its first edition last year under the auspices of the Malaga Film Festival.


Thus, the program for MOSMA 2017 will feature the following concerts:
