SEMINCI will receive the 2nd Spanish Conference about Shootings and Cinematographic Tourism, with Portugal as a guest country.
On the 24th and 25th October, Spain Film Commission and Valladolid Film Office co-organize a cycle of technical conferences in the Museum of Spanish Contemporary Art “Patio Herreriano” in Valladolid.
Spain is still globally positioning itself as an international shooting destination thanks to the implementation of a tax incentive system and the promotion of the country in specific audiovisual markets. Professionals and companies that provide services to the productions have jointly contributed with the Film Commissions and Film Offices to turn Spain into a great set, and they are certainly the key drivers of the emerging take-off of the cinematographic tourism.
This second edition of the Conference (the first was celebrated also in Valladolid in 2016) has the goal to delve into the strategies to boost the cinematographic tourism and to attract new shootings. It is addressed to the audiovisual and touristic sector professionals, as well as representors of the territories concerned in turning these industries into a development engine, these will have during two days the opportunity to discuss and exchange good practices.
