Santos Film Commission was created by the City Hall in October 2007.
Santos Film Commission acts as facilitator for audiovisual productions held in the city. Provides technical support in the search for sites with specialized producers, streamline services negotiations for better cost savings, and provide databases with professionals from various industries and office production teams.
One of the main goals of Santos Film Commission is to promote the implementation of audiovisual works in the city, such as long and short films, soap operas, series, documentaries, commercials, photo shoots, music videos and movie releases. With its many natural resources, revitalized historic downtown, with buildings more than a century, hills, swamps, waterfalls, beaches, port, Santos is the ideal setting for holding large productions (see “Leases”).
A 45 minutes from São Paulo, Santos has an excellent infrastructure to receive production teams, network of hotels, restaurants, casting, rental equipment and vehicles, specialized professionals, among other services.
The City, when creating the Film Commission Santos was able to strengthen the city’s vocation to become a real movie. Proof of this is the large number of productions developed in the city, including JK and Um Só Coração, Terra Nostra, Sassaricando and Ciranda de Pedra, the feature films Querô, Plastic City e Reflexões de liquidificador, and several short films and various advertising campaigns.
