Film industry

Filming all options at a maximum distance of 600 km

  

Uruguay has a strategic location in a region of high economic attractiveness, only a 45-minute flight from Buenos Aires, Argentina, and two hours from São Paulo, Brazil. Its moderate climate, with average temperatures of 25°C, opposite seasons to the northern hemisphere and more than 12 hours of sunlight in summer, make the country an ideal destination for filming.

With more than 1,000 kilometers of coastline to the Atlantic Ocean and Rio de la Plata, wide variety of beaches, bordering hills, desert dunes and extensive green fields, the country offers a great diversity of locations, at a maximum distance of 600 kilometers.
