Catalunya Film Commission has confirmed its attendance at the first edition of Shooting Locations Marketplace. This is the international event in which audiovisual industry companies and scenaries and destinations location managers will meet. The event will take place next October at Feria de Valladolid.
Catalunya Film Commission is part of the Catalan film fund and the first contact point for filmmakers interested in shooting in the region. It provides guidance on accessing funds via the 30% tax rebate available in Spain or through the minority coproduction fund available to Catalan companies. It also acts as a link to the local audiovisual infrastructure and to local authorities and offers a comprehensive database of locations and companies. All its services are free.
Catalonia is situated in the northeast of Spain. To the north, a 350km mountain range marks the border with France. To the east, 580 km of Mediterranean coast with long sandy beaches, virgin coves, small fishing villages and big commercial ports. Inland, manufacturing cities and old medieval towns boast industrial and cultural heritage alongside dense forests and green hills. Barcelona is Catalonia’s capital city, a safe and welcoming urban enclave offering all sorts of locations, ranging from Roman archaeological remains to contemporary 21st century architectural designs.
The territory has been the set for feature films and TV series such as “Las niñas”, “Summer 1993”, “Game of Thrones”, “Westworld”, “Killing Eve” or “Hanna”, amongst many others.
Shooting Locations Marketplace, a project developed by Feria de Valladolid endorsed by the Spain Film Commission, has an international scope. Today international and national destinations as Canary Islands, La Rioja, Navarra, Mallorca, United Kingdom, Costa Blanca, Portugal, Castille and León, Valence, Andalucia or Brussels have confirmed their attendance.
