Shoot&Coproduce. Catalonia, a country for film was first published in 2015 as a way to provide a snapshot of the Catalan audiovisual ecosystem. Six years on, we are happy to present a new edition of this booklet to share all the activity that went on despite the COVID19 pandemic that affected the film industry all over the world. Soon after the strict lockdown in the spring of 2020, filming was resumed and Catalonia hosted a number of national and international film and TV shoots. Film festivals went ahead either online or with live audiences and productions got released in cinemas, platforms and festivals. What follows is an overview of the success stories of 2020 coupled with a guide on how to collaborate with Catalan companies, either by partnering with local producers to apply for the minority co-production fund or through the 30% tax incentive available in Spain. We welcome you to discover this vibrant production hub in the south of Europe, which is home to a wide variety of companies and filmmakers that visit all formats and genres in ways that defy a single definition but which share one common trend: the ability to reach universal audiences in festivals and cinemas around the world. Streaming platforms and major broadcasters team up with independent companies to produce high quality crowd-pleasers, with renowned directors and cast that result in Box Office and festival successes. Alongside these more commercially driven productions, what has been labelled as the Catalan new wave encompasses a new generation of directors – mostly women – that have developed their own authorial language to approach their particular outlook on commonplace, intimate stories or to explore with the hybridization of genres to address their concerns. Emerging talents make their way into the industry hand-in-hand with experienced producers that venture into short film production or finish up school projects with a potential to reach the market. The boom in high-end TV production has also had an effect on Catalonia, with a continued growth and continued high levels of production investment across the region. National and international companies benefit from the wide array of locations and available studios to produce new shows for global audiences, while animation and documentaries thrive and benefit from international coproduction agreements. We hope that you will enjoy this publication as an introduction to the wealth of the Catalan audiovisual industry and look forward to helping you find out more.
