For Emiliano García Domene, Councilor for Tourism and Internationalization of the Valencia City Council, “We are pleased to welcome the World Tourism Film Awards to València in the first year that they are held outside the city of Vienna. We are aware of the power that audiovisual content has in tourism promotion and its ability to excite and arouse interest in a territory. For this reason, at Visit València, we are betting on an increasingly digital, dynamic, and creative promotion in which audiovisual content takes on greater prominence.

Through audiovisual promotion, we project that València is a dynamic city that combines a rich artistic heritage, architecture, gastronomy, and cultural traditions. As you know, this year, we are World Design Capital, but we are also the European Capital of Smart Tourism. Valencia has always shown its potential, and now it is in the spotlight as a world reference in tourism innovation and sustainability. It is a challenge for us to transmit these values and make them reach potential tourists.”

Kammel, CIFFT Director.
