Filming figures in Benidorm increase by 50 per cent

BENIDORM Film Office (BFO), the city’s municipal office for filming released its figures for the first half of 2017 last week.

The city’s streets have become a popular backdrop for hundreds of productions, the most sought-after areas being Mirador de la Cruz, Paseo de Poniente, calle Dos Calas and calle Gerona.

Filming figures in Benidorm have seen a huge increase as the city becomes one of the most active audio-visual production destinations in Spain.

Figures for the first half of 2017 were up 47 per cent on the first half of 2016 with most filming taking place in the months of May and June.

In June this year, four productions were being filmed on one day.

Municipal officials attribute this to the coordination and professionalism of the different municipal departments involved – who respond to the needs of the producers, whether the filming be for an advertisement or feature film.
