A Cinema city

In view of the growing development of Galicia’s audiovisual industry, whose technical and human resources are capable of handling large-scale co-productions, and in order to cater to the demand for international and Spanish audiovisual productions, Santiago City Council decided to create the Santiago de Compostela Film Commission within the framework of its Tourism Excellence Plan (PET).

Santiago de Compostela Film Commission is a non-profit audiovisual promotion office –the first real one in Galicia- that has the objective of providing a public service. Its goal is promoting the image of the city, the image of the audiovisual industry and that of other industries involved in audiovisual production, as well as contributing to their development and consolidation.

Santiago de Compostela Film Commission is part of the Network of Cinema Cities for four countries (Italiy, Greece, Portugal and Spain), that encompasses the cities of Thessaloniki, Venice, Donostia-San Sebastian, Porto, Salamanca and Santiago de Compostela. The Santiago de Compostela Film Commission has been a member of the AFCI (Association of Film Commissioners International) since 2002. SCFC is also associated with the Spain Film Commission.
