Genova Liguria Film Commission breaks filming record for 2022

Genova Liguria Film Commission, one of Italy's northern areas, saw a record breaking number of film and television productions in 2022. 

The Liguria region president Giovanni Toti presented the 2022 results alongside the performance for the first three months of 2023 for the Genova Liguria Film Commission. Compared to 2022, 2023 is already seeing increases across the board.

According to Toti, 2022 saw 333 assisted productions, 535 preparation days and 847 shooting days for a total of 1382 production days (almost 200 more than in 2021).

Three were 6,198 job placements, of which around 2,000 were Ligurian professionals, for workers on the sets (this is up 1,503 compared to 2021). There were a total of 27,510 working days (up 9,114 compared to 2021). 

The direct economic impact on the territory exceeded €9 million, for a total production value estimated at around €27 m. Productions filmed across 88 Ligurian municipalities.

The first three months of 2023 have seen direct economic effects on the territory exceed £1.7 m, with a total production value of around €3 m with already 40 municipalities involved.

Toti said that the increase in numbers "confirm the growing success of Liguria as a location for the production of films and TV series."
