Twenty professionals from the region attended the launch event of Algarve Film Collective at Spy Manor on Friday, August 28. The initiative aims to bring together professionals from the film, fashion and the entertainment industries working in the Algarve region.
Early last month, Spy Manor Productions and Production Algarve announced a long-term collaboration to raise the profile of the region as a destination for the global media and entertainment industry.
Spy Manor Productions will be hosting regular meetings for members of the Algarve Film Collective to strengthen the local network and facilitate further opportunities and collaborations between freelance professionals, brands and businesses working in the Media and entertainment field.
Vanda Everke, Founder and Executive Producer at Spy Manor Productions, said: “We recognise the value and importance of the region’s network of professionals working in all the entertainment industries. Both myself and Harry Klunder from Productions Algarve feel confident that the initiative will not only boost the sector but also provide the opportunity for fruitful collaborations to materialise.”
João Fernandes, President of Algarve Tourism, said: “It is important to facilitate the development of international media productions in the Algarve as a way to encourage direct investment in the region. These productions convey the desired message that the Algarve region is an exciting tourist destination.”
