Valencia enjoys a warm climate with more than 300 days of sunshine per year and an average temperature of 19º. Bathed by the warm waters of the Mediterranean Sea, the city boasts miles of beaches and green areas. Thanks to its over 2,000 years of history Valencia is home to a wide range of locations, each one capable of inspiring numerous plots for any film genre.
The local industry boasts highly qualified professionals, first-rate animation studios, companies specialising in services, set building and decorating, VFX professionals and sets for all types of productions.
Valencia also boasts thousands of eating establishments offering both tasty local cuisine and delicious culinary creations, over 40,000 accommodation places from tourist apartments to luxury hotels, and is ideally connected by land, sea and air to various international hubs, two hours from the European capitals and nine hours from North America. What’s more, Madrid and Valencia are connected by high-speed trains that, with over ten running daily, connect the two capitals in one and a half hours.
In Spain, there is a 20% tax reduction for international productions taking place in Spain (some exceptions) provided that the budget invested in Spain is at least one million euros. You can find the law on tax incentives and the conditions here and hereinformation in English.
On a regional level, the Valencian Community has a budget for film funding thanks to the Valencian Institute for Culture (applicable to feature-length films, short films, animation, drama and digital platforms) if production is taking place in the region, if the film is being co-produced by a local producer and if Valencians are being employed.
In the City of Valencia, the City Council exempts producers from fees for occupying public spaces if their films highlight the cultural heritage of the city and use local staff.
