New commission to promote country as location to shoot films

Portugal’s minister of culture, Graça Fonseca, has said that the country will be setting up a “strong” film commission by the end of March, with the aim of promoting Portugal as a location for shooting films.

Speaking in Berlin, Fonseca said that the move is part of a bigger plan, in collaboration with the tourist board, aimed at simplifying and modernising procedures to enable filming in Portugal in order to promote the country abroad.

She also said that the future commission would foster co-productions with the involvement of local technicians, actors and producers and would also raise the profile of Portuguese cinema internationally.
