The Castilla-La Mancha Film Commission emerges from the vision of merging two key missions: promoting and placing our region in the audiovisual landscape and providing companies and professionals in the sector with all the necessary tools to make their shoots viable and productive in our territory. In this way, it seeks to place Castilla-La Mancha on the industry’s radar by taking advantage of its rich natural resources and infrastructures, paving the way for the significant economic and tourist repercussions that sectors such as cinema or television can bring.
The primary mission of the Castilla-La Mancha Film Commission is to be that essential contact in the region, providing audiovisual producers with advice, relevant and timely information so that their projects develop under the most optimal conditions.
This initiative connects them with the relevant regional, provincial, and local authorities to obtain the necessary authorizations efficiently.
During the next edition of the Shooting Locations Marketplace, on October 17 and 18, it will be the ideal time to delve into the proposal that the Castilla-La Mancha Film Commission has to offer.
The Region, a complete setting
Castilla-La Mancha, beyond being a historically rich region, is a cinematographic stage in itself. Its vast landscapes are a melting pot of colours and textures: from the Manchegan plains that evoke the adventures of Don Quixote to lush forests that seem taken from fairy tales. But it’s not just about landscapes. The region hosts a series of iconic places, such as ancient abandoned factories, wineries that tell stories of past generations, imposing palaces and castles that seem frozen in time, and roads that wind through diverse terrains, offering a variety of backgrounds for any production.
Additionally, Castilla-La Mancha is home to numerous heritage sites. Its towns and cities preserve an enviable architectural legacy, from its squares to its churches, through its cobbled streets that have seen historical characters parade. It is this combination of history and modernity that has attracted renowned filmmakers, from Kubrick to Almodóvar.
Of course, we cannot forget the green areas of the region. The vast fields of lavender, the olive groves extending to the horizon, and the vineyards that give life to the country’s most exquisite wines.
Every corner of Castilla-La Mancha has a story to tell, and this diversity has been the protagonist of countless national and international productions.
Castilla-La Mancha is more than just a location; it is a character that is imprinted on every production. The essence, traditions, and culture of its inhabitants have seduced filmmakers and producers over the years. From documentaries that explore its deepest customs to series and films that have made its landscapes the perfect backdrop, Castilla-La Mancha is undoubtedly a land of cinema.
In conclusion, Castilla-La Mancha not only presents itself as a region of unparalleled beauty but also as an ally for the audiovisual industry.
With initiatives such as the Red Espacios de Cine CLM and a team dedicated to facilitating each process, it positions itself as an essential destination for any production, whether it is cinema, television, or any audiovisual format. The invitation is open to discover this cinematic treasure that is Castilla-La Mancha.
