The MovieMed study presents the audiovisual and cinema sectors, how they work around the Mediterranean and in particular in six partner countries (Egypt, France, Lebanon, Morocco, Spain and Tunisia). It aims to give a broad view of the possibilities offered for hosting foreign film shoots.

Audiovisual production in the Mediterranean is a major challenge for the attractivity of the territories concerned. It represents a considerable source of economic benefit (hotels, restaurants, retail trade, etc.), is an important creator of local employment (local recruitment of skilled workers, use of local post-production companies, for example) and has a big impact on a destination's image and its communication.

The study reveals how the Mediterranean countries present their assets to attract foreign film shoots, whilst supporting or developing their domestic film industries as features of a strong cultural identity.


This study is aimed particularly at film project leaders and, more widely, at audiovisual sector professionals : it demonstrates the capabilities the Mediterranean undeniably possesses in terms of technical, natural and human resources.
