In its efforts to establish the country as a scenario for international audiovisual production, the Colombia Film Commission will participate in November in the American Film Market - AFM, one of the most important film industry events in the world, and in MIP Cancun, the main market for television content in Latin America.
The Commission's presence at these events is part of the strategy to promote the incentives of Law 1556, known as "Colombia Filming Law", as well as the socialization of other factors of interest offered by the country, such as the diversity of locations, institutional support and the talent of local technical and artistic teams.
The Colombian audiovisual industry has become a reference in the region thanks to economic incentives to promote the audiovisual industry, which bring investment to the country, job creation and the opportunity to tell stories made in Colombia.
