Cadiz, the capital of the audiovisual industry.
A city that has historically promoted cultural exchange between Spain and Latin America, a bridge to Africa and a meeting point for different artistic disciplines, it will once again become the epicentre of the international audiovisual sector thanks to the Festival.

Once again, Cádiz will be looking to Andalusia, but also to Spain and the rest of the world, to show what is happening in the world of series, to promote meetings and commercial exchanges, to strengthen the audiovisual cultural industry and also to talk to the public, giving them unique moments to share their love for the series, and to celebrate the good health that the sector enjoys with its protagonists.

The first edition of the Festival demonstrated the potential of the province of Cádiz as a destination for filming and audiovisual productions, in line with the region’s strategy of developing the cultural industry linked to tourism and the province’s economy.

The Andalusian community has become the reference territory for shooting series and films in southern Europe. Today, Andalusia is one of the continent’s most important natural filming locations, as well as being a magnet for the world’s creative and cultural nomads. It is a special place to live, create and work.

It also has a strong audiovisual sector, which will find in the South Series the perfect ally for its expansion into the rest of the world.
