FIMM was acknowledged with the EFFE (Europe for Festivals, Festivals for Europe) label 2019-2020. The EFFE label is the hallmark of European quality for outstanding artistic festivals, awarded in recognition for the work in the fields of the arts, community involvement and international openness. Only 715 European festivals have achieved this quality label in 2017-2018. This seal was awarded after an evaluation by international experts which ascertained the quality standards of the festival.
This recognition allows the Marvão Festival to be part of an important network of work and, at the same time, to aim to win the EFFE Awards 2019-2020, which will be awarded between July and September 2019.
