The president of the Academy of Cinematographic Arts and Sciences, Mariano Barroso, and the mayor of Seville, Antonio Muñoz, have announced that the Andalusian capital will host the ceremony for the 37th edition of the Goya Awards in 2023.

Barroso has assured that with the new edition of the awards, the Academy will begin to “decentralize” its activities. The president of the entity has also explained that in Seville he has verified the “affection of the people” for the cinema and has anticipated that the next ceremony will be a “great gala”.

The mayor of Seville, Antonio Muñoz, has thanked the Academy for “trusting” the Andalusian capital and has emphasized that the 2023 Goya awards will be “key” to “decisively contribute to the recovery process after the pandemic”.

Muñoz added that the event will allow Seville to position itself as a “national cultural benchmark” and that, with the ceremony, the city intends to “demonstrate” that Seville is “culture and a sign of identity”.

In this context, the Goyas return to Seville, a city that received the awards in 2019 for the second time in its history. In 2020 and 2021 the event took place in Malaga; in 2022 Valencia was the city in charge of organizing the gala.

This year’s “extraordinary” harvest of Spanish cinema will be celebrated in what was the first city in which the Goyas toured, where, as a prelude to the gala, a series of activities will take place -meetings with actors and filmmakers, exhibitions, screenings of nominated films, photocall at the Town Hall, which will culminate in what will be the great night of Spanish cinema.
