A new event that aims to bring together the film and tourism industries is set to launch in Marseille in January. MovieMed is currently seeking producers to take part in its project market.  

The two-day event, a collaboration between business and film organisations in Egypt, France, Lebanon, Morroco, Spain and Tunisia, aims to explore the economic benefits to countries of hosting film and TV productions. It will run January 18 and 19.

The project market, which takes place on the first day, aims to bring together key figures from the audio-visual and tourism industries in those countries and producers who are seeking locations around the Mediterranean. The attendees are seeking to attract productions that could be used as “vehicles” for economic development or communication.

MovieMed has been launched by a network of Chambers of Commerce, professional federations, film commissions and other organisations from the countries taking part.
