Film In Peru, the incredible offer of destinations to film in the country
Peru has incredible scenery, dreamlike landscapes, as well as a variety of microclimates that are ideal for any production. For this reason, the Commission for the Promotion of Peruvian Exports and Tourism (PROMPERU), presented its Film In Peru strategy to position our country in the international cinematographic sector.
The strategy aims to get more national and international production companies interested in making their films, short films, series and documentaries in Peru, creating new attractions and rediscovering places, cities and regions. This is in order to continue promoting the national tourism offer.
"Movie fans are more active in sharing their travel experiences on social media and have the highest rate of post-visit recommendations than average visitors," said Walter Vizarreta, executive president of PROMPERU.
As soon as a production company comes and accepts the challenge, PROMPERU starts coordinating with the Ministries of Foreign Affairs, Culture, Transport and Communications and the regional governments to provide all the logistical facilities for filming, as well as the respective support.
Currently in the Film In Peru minisite, you can find a catalog of locations with important content from different destinations in our country. In addition to this, we plan to make an audiovisual catalog of some locations in Peru, which provides dynamism to the content we show.
Peruvian scenarios include the exuberant beauty of the rainforest, deserts and beaches in the Pacific Ocean, snow-capped mountains that exceed 6000 meters above sea level and canyons considered among the deepest on the planet, as well as countless rivers and lakes. In addition, Peru's variety of climates creates a surprising mosaic of dazzling landscapes that make the country a natural paradise.
In November 2021, the production team of more than 800 people completed the filming of the feature film in Peruvian lands (Cusco and San Martín) of the movie Transformers: Rise of the Beasts.
In the last year, PROMPERU, through Film In Peru, provided ongoing support to six other major national and international productions, such as Backpackers by Tondero (Peru) for Netflix, Queen of the South (La Reina del Sur) Season 3 by Telemundo and Netflix (United States), Don't Look Up by Netflix (United States) and Scouting of the movie Lady Nazca (France).
