Embassy of Iceland hosts film tourism conference in Chennai & Hyderabad

With an aim to increase tourist footfalls from India, Embassy of Iceland organized and hosted a film tourism conference for the Tamil & Telugu film industries. The event was held in Chennai and Hyderabad on September 20th and 22nd and saw a presence of the top producers and cinematographers from the industry. Through their addresses, H.E Mr Thorir Ibsen, Ambassador of Iceland to India and Kumar Sitaraman, Honorary Consul General of Iceland in Chennai encouraged the film-makers to shoot in the picturesque country. They also showcased scenic locales and enlisted benefits provided to film makers opting to shoot in Iceland.
H.E Mr Thorir Ibsen, Ambassador of Iceland to India who attended and addressed the gathering of select producers and cinematographers in both cities said, “Iceland has many advantages as a filming location. One among them is the spectacular variety of landscapes and locations found within short distances of one another. The local crews available are well experienced and well trained for producing quality films in tough conditions. Besides these, the incentives for filming in Iceland will be increased from the current 20% to 25% in 2017. We are looking forward to work with many more Indian film-makers and are hoping to see Iceland more often on the big screen.”
Kumar Sitaraman, Honorary Consul General of Iceland in Chennai who attended the conference in both cities added, “Iceland received 1000+ tourists from India last year. We are hoping that the numbers of tourists from India increases after audiences watch the many impressive landscapes and natural beauty the country has through the big screen.”
Iceland is ideal for travellers who are looking for new and niche destinations. The almost surreal natural beauty, boisterous volcanoes, giant glaciers, fjords and of course the Aurora Borealis, all make Iceland a perfect destination for premium tourists from India. The film conference was conducted by Blue Square Consultants in both cities.
