Valdobbiadene (Treviso), 4 May 2024 – The Prosecco Hills of Conegliano and Valdobbiadene, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, unveil their enchantment to important European television and film producers, thanks to a tour organised by the Film Commission Veneto. This tour allowed the participants, coming from the UK, Germany, France and Sweden, to explore the landscape and cultural beauty of the area, evaluating its potential as a location for future film and television projects.

The Prosecco Hills of Conegliano and Valdobbiadene have already served as the backdrop for several productions, confirming their versatility and beauty as film locations. Among the productions that have chosen this enchanting territory as a set, there has been the famous ‘’The Last Prosecco‘’, the celebrated television series “One step from heaven“, which captured the essence of the hills in an extraordinary way, and the more recent “I Hate Christmas” directed by CRIC (Davide Mardegan and Clemente De Muro).

Film and television are sectors with constantly growing numbers and play a strategic role in promoting our territories, – comments Marina Montedoro, President of the Association. That is why we have already brought to the hills Italian productions of great value and audience that have shown our territory to their viewers. We are therefore delighted to welcome these days the European television and film producers identified by the Veneto Film Commission, with whom we have been carrying out joint projects for some time, also during the Venice Film Festival. The visit will offer them the opportunity to discover the richness of the Hills, certain that after their visit they will be able to grasp the potential of using them as film sets for their future projects. This type of ‘movie tour’ represents, together with the press tours that we now organise every six months on the Hills, an unmissable opportunity to promote them internationally, offering further proof of their value as a cultural and scenic treasure.

Among the producers who visited the Hills were, from Great Britain, Adrian Kelly, known for “Killing Eve”, the series aired on Sky; Stuart Fenegan famous for “Moon”, a science fiction film presented at Sundance in 2009 and “Source Code”, an action film starring Jake Gyllenhaal; Adam Ackland who has the company Sunny March Production, and is known for “Patrick Melrose”, a British-US TV miniseries starring Benedict Cumberbatch; London-based set designer Alice Felton, known for “The Favourite”, by Yorgos Lanthimos starring Olivia Colman, Emma Stone and Rachel Weisz, a film that received 10 Oscar 2019 nominations; and Sarah Mulberge, known for “Fast & Furious – Hobbs & Shaw”, “Sam Mendes” “1917”, and the “Borgia” series.

From France there was also Alban Etienne, known for “Skam” and “Marie Antoinette” aired on Sky and Xavier Roy famous for “Covert Affairs”, an American series aired on Mediaset. Germany was also present, with Frank Kusche from Pantafix/Pantaleon, a renowned German company founded by actor/director Matthias Schweighöfer, and Sweden with Anna Sofia Mörck, a Stockholm-based producer with her company Hey films and known for “The Girl in the Spider’s Web”, the sequel film to ‘’The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo’’, the film adaptation of Stieg Larsson‘s Millennium saga.
