The Mallorca Film Commission published the first call of the Film Awards on March 7th. These awards are intended to promote the creation and audiovisual production in Mallorca, consolidate the image of Mallorca as a film set and promote the cinematographic stories linked directly or indirectly to Mallorca.
It should be recalled that the Mallorca Tourism Foundation is a non-profit entity, which is dependent on the Insular Direction of Tourism of the Consell de Mallorca and whose objective is the tourist promotion of the island in the national and international markets, together with the creation of tourist products, the management of tourist services in general, and any other activity with the aim of promoting the tourism of the island.
One of the actions included within the expenditure budget of the Mallorca Tourism Foundation and the 2019 Action Plan is precisely to support the audiovisual sector as a source of tourist products to project the image of Mallorca abroad, showing its landscapes, traditions and culture.
For this purpose, the Mallorca Film Awards will recognize the value of the works filmed in Mallorca, by local or foreign authors, and of the professionals that take part in them.
Year after year, the Mallorca Film Commission has consolidated itself as the window of support, management and interinstitutional mediation for local, national and international audiovisual projects, and promotes and facilitates the realization of audiovisual projects to professionals and companies within the territory of Mallorca, while stimulating and consolidating the industry and the Mallorcan audiovisual sector.
*REMINDER: Please bear in mind that all the documentation of the application must be presented in one of the official languages of the Balearic Islands (either Spanish or Catalan).
