The Greek Film Commission has nominated the island of Corfu for best film location in an upcoming competition organised by the European Film Commissions Network (EUFCN).
The island which has made the finals is a strong contender for the award as it is a popular shooting location for film and tv productions laregly thanks its rich and diverse architectural landscape that crosses various styles and periods.
Corfu came to prominence again after it became the location for the popular TV series “THE DURRELLS” aired by ITV in Britain and PBS in the United States.
EUFCN consists of 90 members, from 30 countries, which promote European audiovisual production sites. The competition is being implemented in partnership with Cineuropa.
The Film Location Award was introduced last year when the EUFCN Network celebrated its 10th anniversary at an event in the European Parliament.
