The Asturias Natural Paradise Film Commission is a prestigious initiative launched in 2016 under the auspices of the Public Society for Tourism and Cultural Promotion of the Principality of Asturias SAU.

This entity, linked to the Department of Culture, Linguistic Policy and Tourism, is based in Laboral City of Culture, Gijón/Xixón.

Being the only public proposal of its kind active in the Principality, it joins the Spain Film Commission network, significantly contributing to the national cinematic landscape.

Its main mission is to provide filmmakers and producers with all the necessary support to develop film projects in the region.

From searching and managing locations, advising on grants and sponsorships, to support in obtaining filming permits. Undoubtedly, one of its most significant points is the extensive portfolio of settings Asturias can offer, a range of locations that combines the magic of nature with heritage richness.

During the next edition of the Shooting Locations Marketplace, held on the 17th and 18th of October, attendees will have a magnificent opportunity to delve into this Film Commission’s proposal.

It will be an ideal space to explore the many locations that Asturias has to offer, a land where cinema and nature go hand in hand.

Locations: almost all green

Asturias, known for its lush natural beauty, offers majestic mountains in the Picos de Europa, to dreamy beaches like Rodiles or Gulpiyuri.

These natural locations intertwine with dense forests like Muniellos, flowing rivers and steep cliffs that add a special charm to any production.

Additionally, the marine environment, with its rich variety of beaches and cliffs, complements this natural setting.

Asturias is not just about landscapes. Its locations are enriched with historical and architectural ensembles. The cities of Oviedo and Gijón, with their mix of old and modern buildings, offer ideal urban spaces for all kinds of productions.

Furthermore, the industrial heritage, palaces like Valdecarzana or the Asturian pre-Romanesque, provide a unique stamp to the region. And for those looking for a medieval touch, Asturian towns with their granaries and mansions are the perfect setting.

On the other hand, green spaces such as Las Ubiñas-La Mesa Natural Park or Redes Natural Park are true paradises for cinematography. Their fauna and flora diversity, together with lakes like Covadonga, make Asturias an unmatched canvas.

Added to this is traditional architecture, present in villages and towns that seem straight out of fairy tales.

Lastly, one cannot fail to mention the region’s rich cultural heritage, with sites like the Tito Bustillo Cave archaeological complex or the Camino de Santiago as it passes through Asturias. Places that, in addition to scenic beauty, provide productions with deep historical and cultural backgrounds.

Asturias: great facilities

Additionally, the Asturias Natural Paradise Film Commission goes further by providing complementary services, ensuring sustainable and environmentally friendly development. It is this commitment to sustainability, coupled with its extensive range of locations, that makes Asturias an unparalleled destination for the audiovisual world.

Of course, the current tax incentives add allure to the proposal, making the region a highly competitive destination in the international cinematic landscape.
