Navarra Film Commission attended 25% more shootings during 2018
This office, which belongs to the Navarre Government, managed 95 audiovisual projects, 28 of which were feature films.
Navarra Film Commission, integrated by NICDO, has presented its balance of activities during 2018, which has shown that during 156 days fiction feature film shootings took place and 417 days of shooting in the whole region in 2018. This represents a big increase from last year. And also, many local producers started their own projects with local workers.
The landscape diversity in Navarre has been reflected this year in the wide selection of locations where is possible to shoot. Most of the shootings choose Pamplona as a location with productions such as “Los Asesinatos de Goya”, “Perdiendo el Este” or “Los Japón”. But this year also not very famous locations were chosen: Marcilla, (“Remember Me”), Uztarroz (“Lo nunca visto”) or Urbasa (“El silencio de la ciudad blanca”). This is a great display of the efforts that have been done in Navarre, not only to attract shootings to the typical locations, but to increase the number of shooting destinations in this region.

We also think that is important to highlight the implementation in Navarra of animation companies that are currently working in several projects. Apolo Films, for example, has been working since July 2018 in the film “D’Artacan”, with other projects in mind for the following years. New Gravity Laws is working in parallel the post production and the animation of projects such as “Las Golondrinas de Kabul” or “Dino Games”, a film, TV series and video game that takes place in Pamplona.
For 2019, Navarra Film Commission has a very tight agenda: they are working on different collaboration agreements to boost shootings in this territory, and they are supporting the short film competition of Navarra, together with Environmental Department and the Department of Rural Development of the Navarran Government and the University of Navarra.
