From its golden beaches to its centuries-old castles, Andalusia has always been a treasure for film and television.
The Andalusia Film Commission, a non-profit institution, has worked tirelessly since 1998 to promote Andalusia as an exceptional filming location, supporting companies and professionals in the audiovisual industry with the logistics of their productions.
One of the key missions of the Andalusia Film Commission is to inform about possible locations in Andalusia and coordinate the audiovisual industry and production companies with the government.
This work not only seeks to promote filming but also to attract tourism, generating a beneficial economic impact for the Andalusian region. Additionally, thanks to agreements with public and private institutions from different provinces of Andalusia, the Network of Film Cities has emerged, providing exceptional coverage of the audiovisual production needs throughout Andalusia.
During the next edition of Shooting Locations Marketplace, which takes place on October 17 and 18, those interested will have a unique opportunity to get to know in depth the proposal that Andalusia has to offer to the cinematic and television world.
Andalusia, all environments in a single region
Andalusia is a land of contrasts. From the Tabernas Desert in Almería, the only desert in Europe and the setting for iconic spaghetti westerns, to the golden beaches of El Playazo in Níjar, through the monumental Alhambra in Granada, the most impressive Arab legacy in the West.
But it is not only a place of landscapes; it’s a place of stories. The streets of the Cuevas District in Guadix, with its houses dug into the mountain, or the historic Real Alcázar in Seville, have witnessed shootings that have catapulted them to international fame.
Andalusian cities, with their rich mix of history and modernity, offer a range of possibilities.
From the Peñaflor Palace in Écija, through the contemporary architecture of the Sevilla Tower to the Andalusian charm of the streets of Alájar, every corner tells a story waiting to be captured by the camera.
Andalusia is not only limited to its cities. Natural spaces, like the Odiel Marshes in Huelva or the Oromana Pines in Alcalá de Guadaíra, offer a break from urbanity and a unique opportunity for shootings seeking a deeper contact with nature.
In addition, for productions looking for more majestic locations, La Calahorra Castle or the Cathedral of Cádiz, provide that historical and grandiose atmosphere that can turn a simple scene into an unforgettable cinematic moment.
If the desire is to shoot in a more sophisticated and modern environment, Puerto Banús in Marbella or Muelle Uno in Málaga are ideal locations.
These places not only offer a luxurious and modern aesthetic but also have the charm of the Mediterranean Sea as a backdrop.
Support for production
As a final note, Spain offers tax incentives for international films and series, positioning the country, and particularly Andalusia, as one of the most competitive filming destinations in the region. Additionally, shooting here can take advantage of the well-known virtues and merits of our country and our solid audiovisual industry.
