Its basic functions are:
-facilitating relations between audiovisual production companies and the industry’s services and facilities in the city, providing all kinds of advice and information in this regard
-filming assistance service
-permanent contact with the community, production companies and the government
In return, all productions that receive the collaboration of the Santiago de Compostela Film Commission’s office should include, in their credits, the name of the Santiago de Compostela Film Commission, Santiago de Compostela City Council and Turismo de Santiago de Compostela, as well as any of the city’s public or private entities also collaborating in the filming.
The Santiago de Compostela Film Commission assumes a cultural and economic promotion character, resulting in a policy of acquiring, preserving and archiving audiovisual material about the city and the surrounding area. This is aimed at creating an audiovisual film museum, as well as organising seminars, meetings, congresses, series of films and other events.
