This year we have 12 beautiful locations to choose from, all of which have played important roles in films and TV series shot during 2017. We believe that this award further contributes to the recognition of Europe around the world. ”, said Truls Kontny, President of the EUFCN.According to Cineuropa, Vis is one of the most beautiful Adriatic islands, which was closed to foreign visitors as a military base from the XNUMXs to the late XNUMXs, thanks to which it has preserved its authenticity. It is added that Vis has a key role in the second part of the film ‘Mamma Mia’ inspired by the music of the Swedish group Abba, in which he plays the fictional island of Kalokairi and presents himself as a paradise island.In the meantime, there is no need to worry about it. ””In recent years, Croatia has been the natural scenery of numerous film blockbusters, series and reality shows, and I am glad that the contribution has been recognized by the profession. It is a great honor for our country to find itself in the prestigious society of countries that have played a central role in world-renowned films over the past year. This nomination further confirms last year’s title of Croatia as a particularly prominent film tourism destination from the leading British publication Financial Times for Business fDi Magazine, and I believe that it will further strengthen Croatia’s position on the European film map. Also, new tourist products are developed from all of the above, which include a tour of filming locations, making authentic souvenirs or storytelling, thus creating additional motives for coming to the destination outside the main months of the tourist year, which ultimately contributes to the overall tourism competitiveness of our country.”, Said the Minister of Tourism Gary Cappelli when he heard about the nomination of Visa for the best European film destination.You can give your vote to Vis on this one connectors.12 locations in the competition for the award, all of which emphasize the beauty and diversity of Europelast_img
