The Cabildo has put out a call for tender to construct a new purpose built cinema and television studio production set, for a budget of €7 million to be completed within 14 months of execution.

The future Gran Canaria Audiovisual Production Centre aims to place the island at the forefront of the industry regionally, attracting more film shoots and productions to come to and work on Gran Canaria for greater periods of time.

The estimated direct economic benefit to the island over the next 15 years has been projected to exceed €50 million.

The land plot to be used is situated between the island’s main conference fair ground INFECAR and the main RTVE, Radio Television Española, studios in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria.
