Valladolid is a city with a long and special relationship with the world of cinema, and its greatest expression is the SEMINCI, our International Film Festival, one of the oldest and well-established film festivals in Europe going back to 1956.
The city’s commitment to the world of cinema has grown associated with Spain’s first Chair of History and Aesthetics of Cinema, created in 1962 in the University of Valladolid. A relationship that has been more recently increased with initiatives such as the Valladolid Film Office (VAFO), a technical office with the mission of attracting and assisting audio-visual producers wishing to develop their projects in the city of Valladolid and its province.
Valladolid is also the seat of Castile and Leon’s Performing Arts College, one of Spain’s leading performing arts schools in the areas of Dramatic Interpretation, Stage Direction and Playwriting.
