“For the Ministry of Culture of the City of Buenos Aires, it is very important to accompany audiovisual projects. In addition to the human value they carry, and the symbolic importance for the development of our culture, they have great value in the economic dynamics of the city. The sector that recruits the greatest cultural employment is the audiovisual sector: such is the case that they employ close to half of all cultural workers. In addition to promoting the city brand with its locations because more than 40% of the films that are produced in the country per year are filmed here in the City of Buenos Aires”, said the Minister of Culture of the City, Enrique Avogadro. And he added: “That is why, from BA Audiovisual, we articulate programs and tools that help to further promote this sector. The objective is to encourage the circulation of audiovisual productions, generate more exhibition possibilities and promote the participation of residents so that cinema is, as always, a boom in the cultural life of the city. We hope that there will be many more projects that can be carried out because national production companies today have a new tool that is BA International Production. This tool has important economic benefits for production companies that have international projects”.
“From Impulso Cultural through areas such as BA Audiovisual, the Buenos Aires Film Commission and Patronage, we accompany the audiovisual sector in the development of its projects in its different instances and different characteristics, but always with the aim of promoting the industry more and more. , an important source not only for art and culture, but also for the development of the City’s economy,” said the General Director of Cultural and Creative Development Mora Scillamá.
