The Mallorca Film Commission is currently co-organising a scouting session on the island, facilitating location scouting for film shoots. This event features six prominent American location scouts who have traveled to Mallorca to explore its potential for future projects.

Starting on May 19th, these six scouts, all with extensive experience in film management and major projects, embarked on a four-day tour. They visited various public and private locations around Palma, including breathtaking spots in the Serra de Tramuntana. Their route covered areas from Andratx and Calvia to Pollensa, including notable sites such as Soller, Torrent de Pareis, and the Nus de sa Corbata road. These locations, renowned for their scenic beauty, offer diverse backdrops ideal for a wide range of audiovisual projects.

The Consell de Mallorca expressed that this initiative will have a 'very positive impact on future audiovisual projects in Mallorca, due to the international prestige of the participants.' The presence of these experienced scouts underscores the island's potential as a prime filming destination, enhancing its reputation within the global film industry.
