MONEGROS FILM COMMISSION ACTIVITY INCREASED 31% THIS YEAR
More than fifty film production companies and audiovisual professionals used the free guidance serviced offered by Comarca de los Monegros. This service is used as a tool to dynamize and promote Monegros territory.
Monegros Film commission received 55 consultations on 2017, 31% more than on 2016. Film production companies were both national and international (France, Norway, Great Britain and Canada). Most of the filming was related with the fashion and automotive world on the format of short film, videoclip, television spot, internet advertising and specialised press.
The regional tourism councillor, Carmelo Rozas, expressed his satisfaction with the increasing activity. Moreover, he insisted on the increasing interest showed to choose Monegros as the main plateau for long films, as it was the case for “Miau”. Other examples, are the French spot “Sable” to advertise a well-known car brand, the short film “La Puerta del Infierno”, and several television programmes for Canadian and American companies.
Monegros Film Commission was the first one created in Aragon and works in close collaboration with the Spanish and Aragon Film Commissions.
As Carmelo Rozas pointed out, “Those activities offer national and international visibility to the region and add value to the economic activity, because the commission also provides information about hostelry establishments, catering and others that are necessary for the shooting and can be offered at the small villages”.
