Tenerife, international reference for animation

We shall attend the specialist meetings, Kidscreen Summit and Cartoon Movie

kidscreen-blog

Over the last few years, Tenerife has been taking its place in the international panorama as one of the locations to bear very much in mind for animation projects thanks to the  conditions and characteristics which make it unique.  To the attractive fiscal advantages that it offers, with incentives of between 35 and 40 per cent for investment in the film or series, must be added the possibility of paying Corporation Tax at four per cent , as well as the fact that Tenerife has professionals, talent and cutting-edge tools for rendering such as the Teide HPC Supercomputer, the second most powerful in Spain.

There are few places in the world that can combine all these benefits. The excellent air connections with approximately 150 destinations in Europe, America and Africa; the well-known values as a holiday destination, with an exceptional climate 365 days a year, together with top-level infrastructure, make up a very attractive option. In short, the Island is an ideal location for animation projects in an environment which is professional and relaxing at one and the same time.

We will be able to tell you in detail about all these opportunities at Kidscreen Summit,  Miami, from 13th to 16th February, and at Cartoon Movie in Bordeaux (France), between 8th and 10th March. To make an appointment:
