Castilla y León will promote the region’s offer as a filming destination in Shooting Locations Marketplace Valladolid.


The Castilla y León Film Commission will participate in Shooting Locations Marketplace Valladolid on October 17 and 18.

The Council of Culture, Tourism and Sports will be present on October 17 and 18 at Shooting Locations Marketplace, organized by the Valladolid Fair and the Spain Film Commission, with the aim of promoting the Community as a filming destination. This boutique event is aimed at the entire international audiovisual sector, and is an excellent commercial platform for filming destinations, production companies looking for locations and auxiliary services companies.

The Council will be present through the Castilla y León Film Commission, which will participate in the event in its third edition, establishing itself as one of the most important meetings on the filming industry in Europe. The Castilla y León Film Commission is a service of the Ministry of Culture, Tourism and Sports of the Junta de Castilla y León, whose function is to promote the Community as a destination for filming, and to provide any company or professional with all the necessary information to facilitate the filming, with the aim of contributing to the growth of the audiovisual sector and related companies, as well as the creation of networks to allow the exchange of knowledge and specialization.

Filming in Castilla y León

The Community of Castilla y León is an ideal setting for filming all types of audiovisual works due to its variety of landscapes, its rich historical heritage, and the beauty and surprisingness of its traditions. It offers a wide range of locations, both in the rural world and in its urban environments, thanks to the photogenicity of its historic and unique buildings, a great tool for cinematographers and set designers.

Its name clearly refers to its origins, a land full of castles (Castile) that have been preserved since the Middle Ages, where the Legio VII (León) of the Roman Empire was based. A land that still preserves important Roman vestiges, which has medieval towns and walled cities in perfect condition. A territory where one can see all European artistic styles and movements, often with beautiful German, Arab, Hebrew, Flemish, Italian or French influences.

Furthermore, Castilla y León is an immense natural setting. The natural space has strong contrasts which allows almost all geographies of the world to be set in it. This is helped by the seasons, which are very marked throughout the territory. The great mountains such as the Picos de Europa, the wide steppe plain, the beautiful beech, chestnut and oak forests, the rivers with their tremendous cliffs, or the air of the typical mountain towns have allowed the filming of important series on nature, but also great films that are already part of the history of cinema at a universal level.

Castilla y León: In and out of the frame

Castilla y León not only offers a wide range of locations, but also has a network of Film Commissions and Film Offices throughout the Community: Ávila, Burgos, Riaza, Segovia, Salamanca, Soria and Valladolid, have organizations that work to facilitate any need out of the frame. These offices facilitate contacts with local companies and administrations to quickly manage all filming permits.
