With the series The Snow Girl becoming number one in Spain and appearing in another twenty countries on the Netflix platform during the last few days, more good news follows for the Malaga film industry.

On Wednesday the Malaga Film Office (MFO) unveiled its annual balance for the productions shot in 2022 in Malaga city: some 14.2 million euros. Thanks to the adaptation of the novel by Javier Castillo, the new season of Black Mirror and the international series Kaos, among others, the investment is triple that of 2021 when it was 4.1 million.

Although last year pandemic security measures were still in place, the end of the health crisis was accompanied by an increase in large productions, particularly for television series and 'streaming' platforms that have returned to provide a new golden age of recordings – the second best in the last two decades after 2019, which brought in 23 million euros.

And, currently filming in Malaga city and province is the Mediaset series Urban.
