A perfect setting


FIVE production companies chose Benidorm for their publicity campaigns in October, the Film Office revealed.

Not surprisingly, all selected the resort’s most emblematic spots, including Kitten Production which began location shooting Lacoste’s spring-summer fashions at the end of last week.

The town hall’s Film Office and Visit Benidorm tourist board were once again on hand to smooth the way for a 100-strong team from Kitten Production who spent three days preparing photographs, videos and reels for the social media.

Earlier this month, the Film Office handled arrangements for a promotional video for leading Polish footwear brand, a short local film, a documentary-reality show for a UK television company and a television programme for RTVE, Spain’s state broadcaster.

The Film Office was also present at the recent Shooting Locations Marketplace in Valladolid, a trade fair which the organisers described as a “boutique event” for the audio-visual sector filming destinations and locations.

Benidorm town hall since revealed that location scouts from the UK and the US will soon be visiting the resort on a familiarisation trip to see first hand all that the municipality has to offer.
