II Conference on Filming and Tourism: Guest Country Portugal

Spain Film Commission and Valladolid Film Office are co-organising a technical conference

23/10/2018 – On 24th and 25th October, Spain Film Commission and Valladolid Film Office are co-organising a technical conference at the assembly hall at the Patio Herreriano Museum of Spanish Contemporary Art in Valladolid as part of the 63rd edition of SEMINCI 

Spain continues to position itself globally as a destination for international film shoots thanks to the implementation of a system of fiscal incentives and the promotion of the country in specific audiovisual markets. Alongside the work of the Film Commission and Film Offices, professionals and companies supplying services for film productions have contributed to Spain’s success in attracting filming teams, as well as driving the emerging growth in cinematographic tourism.

The second edition of the conference (the first was also held in Valladolid, in 2016) aims to explore strategies for boosting cinematographic tourism and attracting film shoots. It is aimed at professionals from the audiovisual and tourism sectors, as well as representatives from regions interested in the audiovisual industry as a driver for development, who will have the opportunity to discuss and exchange good practices throughout the two days of the conference.

As part of the programme for the 63rd edition of Valladolid International Film Festival (Seminci), the conference will be attended by speakers including representatives of PROFILM (Spanish Producers of International Audiovisual Output), APPA (Association of Audiovisual Production Professionals) and experts linked to the Spain Film Commission and the Cencyl+ Cities Network, as well as renowned professionals from the sector.

Spain Film Commission continues to promote initiatives to position the #ShootinginSpain brand and enhance the competitiveness of the country as a destination for audiovisual film shoots, as well as to boost the growth of cinematographic tourism. This second conference features a prestigious collaboration with Cencyl+ Cities Network, as part of the INTERREG POCTEP programme (Spain-Portugal cooperation), which seeks to strengthen cooperation between the institutions responsible for R+D+i in Castile and León and northern Portugal. The programme is managed by the Valladolid Agency for Innovation and Economic Development.
