The Fuerteventura Film Commission creates a new advert to promote the Island as a cinema set

The Fuerteventura Film Commission has created a new advert to promote the Island as a natural cinema set. The new advert of the FFC consists of images of locations and filming made in Fuerteventura together with snippets of information, aiming to reinforce the potential of Fuerteventura as a filming set. Mountains, extinguished volcanoes, deserts, dunes, endless roads or boundless beaches are part of the fantastic catalogue of locations that Fuerteventura has to offer. The video points out the beauty of those “landscapes from another planet”, as well as the more than 4.000 hours of light available per year, an average temperature of 20 degrees and other attractive features the Island offers as a cinema set. The Fuerteventura Film Commission had not updated its image as a cinema set since 2018, they have, therefore, created two adverts. A long version (in Spanish and English), of over 3 minutes, to be presented on the international markets, fairs and events that take place in and away from the Canaries. The shorter second version, which is 60 seconds long, will be used to communicate on social networks, as well as for the website of the Fuerteventura Film Commission, which is being updated. The Fuerteventura Film Commission keeps on working on the internationalisation of Fuerteventura as a cinema set. In addition to being present in fairs and markets from the Canary Island Films, they are also working on fam-trips with national and international producers as well as the specialised press. Furthermore, the FFC is investing in training. Last year, almost 500 people had the opportunity of gaining basic and advanced knowledge in 6 areas of the audio-visual trade. The objective is to work on training local professionals in the audio-visual sector.
