The Carmona Film Office, an entity of the Carmona City Council, was established in 1999 with a clear purpose: to serve as a link between the audiovisual world and the wonders that Carmona has to offer.

Managed by the municipal tourism department, its mission is to provide support, advice, and free information to producers, agencies, and companies in the audiovisual sector wishing to film in the town.

This public body not only promotes the beauties and services of Carmona, but it also aims to place the municipality on the audiovisual industry’s radar, understanding that such promotion goes beyond our borders through image culture and the related services it generates.

Throughout the next edition of Shooting Locations Marketplace, taking place on the 17th and 18th of October, attendees will have the opportunity to delve deep into what Carmona offers to the audiovisual sector.

Prime Locations, that’s Carmona

But what makes Carmona such a special backdrop? Firstly, its historical heritage is enviable. Places like the Alcázar del Rey Don Pedro and the Alcázar Puerta de Sevilla are living testaments to the rich history of the region and provide a majestic setting for productions seeking a medieval or historical atmosphere.

The various Palatial Houses, like those of the Briones or the Lassos, showcase noble architecture, perfect for period scenes or aristocratic dramas.

However, Carmona’s appeal isn’t solely its history. The Historic Centre of Carmona, with its cobbled alleys and authentic Andalusian atmosphere, is an urban setting full of character. Moreover, the area boasts natural spaces like the Cueva de la Batida or Carmona’s Sunflowers, offering a perfect contrast between urban hustle and the serenity of the rural landscape.

Added to this are iconic places of worship such as the Convento de la Madre de Dios, the Church of San Bartolomé or the Hermitage Nuestra Señora De Gracia, reflecting the spiritual and artistic essence of the place. Not to forget estates like La Buzona and Tavera, which reminisce about the agricultural and noble life, adding a rustic and elegant touch to any production.

And for those seeking green areas, the Fuente de los Leones and Alameda provide a natural retreat within the city, a perfect place for outdoor, romantic, or casual scenes.

Filming in Carmona is All Convenience

The commitment goes beyond mere promotion. They facilitate procedures, offer technical assistance for obtaining permits, coordinate with public administrations and municipal services, and provide contacts with accommodations, restaurants, and industry professionals. All with the aim that productions choosing Carmona as their backdrop can carry out their work with utmost ease and efficiency.

In return, productions are asked to acknowledge the support of the Carmona Film Office in their credits and deposit a copy of the images or photographs in their archive for future promotions.

Lastly, it’s worth noting that the Carmona Film Office is integrated into significant networks such as Andalusian Towns In Cinema, Andalucía Film Commission, Spain Film Commission and is a member of the Association of Film Commissioners International (AFCI).

Carmona, with its cultural, historical, and natural richness, awaits being the next backdrop for your production. And with the support of its Film Office, doing so is easier than ever.
