The Spain Film Commission and LinkedIn have united to launch an online talent network for the audiovisual sector. 

This announcement comes mere months after Spain Film Commission approved some of Europe's biggest international filming incentives. 

At a presentation in Madrid, general manager for LinkedIn in Spain and Portugal Miguel Saenz de Cenzabo said the initial phase will see Linked In encourage and aid Spain Film Commission members to create profiles for the network. Then, it will back content creation to drive network conversation. He cited the case of Ryan Reynolds, who uses LinkedIn to promote his businesses such as Mint Mobile and Maximum Effort and to drive conversation around elements of content creation like storytelling. 

Spain Film Commission will include an extraordinary total of 42 commissions and offices around Spain, including members of the Spanish line producers association Profilm, and ALIA, Spain’s umbrella production body. 

Carlos Rosado, SFC president, said: "Wherever there is a regional public broadcaster, there is some sort of industry."

Slated for 2023 is the release of 70 new Spanish scripted series, and 27 returning seasons of hits such as Elite. 64% are commissioned by streaming platforms, according to figures presented at Series Mania’s Coming Next from Spain showcase.

Production levels have skyrocketed so much that Spanish film producers have to tie down key talent a year or a year-and-a-half in advance. Currently filming in Spain is Andor, season two.
