Film from Centro de Portugal is Top 3 on the world tour film circuit
The promotional film “Aqui Entre Nós”, by Turismo Centro de Portugal (TCP), received the trophy corresponding to the 3rd place in the category “Tourist Destinations – Regions”, in the international circuit of international tourism film festivals.
The result was known in Valencia, Spain, during the World Tourism Film Awards gala, which ended the 2022 circuit. The International Committee of Tourism Film Festivals (CIFFT) gala brings together the most awarded films throughout the year and announces the final ranking.
After adding up all the points received at festivals throughout the year, the film from Centro de Portugal was ranked third among those that competed in the category “Tourist Destinations – Regions”, just behind films from Andalusia (Spain) and Peloponnese (Greece).
Pedro Machado, Jorge Loureiro and Adriana Rodrigues, from TCP, were present at the gala and received the honor from Alexander Kammel, president of CIFFT. For Pedro Machado “it is a great honor for us that the film ‘Aqui Entre Nós’ has earned the distinction as one of the best in the world, in a category that distinguishes regions as tourist destinations. The magnificent region that is the Center of Portugal deserves no less”.
It should be noted that the CIFFT international circuit includes 10 festivals in as many countries. The film “Aqui Entre Nós” was awarded at the International Tourism Film Festival of Africa, in South Africa, at the TourFilm Festival in Zagreb, Croatia, at ART&TUR – International Tourism Film Festival, in Ourém, and at Amorgos Tourism Film Festival in Greece.
“Aqui Entre Nós”, produced for TCP by Ideias Com Pernas – Creative Films, based on a concept developed by the creative agency Bang Bang Creative Shots, as part of a campaign launched by TCP in 2021, whose main objective was to make known to the Portuguese the essence of the Center of Portugal and solidify the region as the first holiday destination for the Portuguese.
