Interview Santi

Tourism film festivals provide a platform for industry professionals to showcase their work, gain recognition through awards, exchange ideas, and explore new trends. At the forefront of this movement is the Terres Travel Festival, a unique event held in Tortosa, Spain, the heart of the Terres de l'Ebre region.

Founded in 2016 by Santi Valldepérez, the Terres Travel Festival is a platform that combines prestigious awards, conferences, film screenings, and diverse cultural activities, all centered around audiovisual communication in tourism with a special focus on sustainability. The event is also known for fostering a unique atmosphere that actively engages the local community.

In 2019, the festival gained further recognition by becoming an official member of the International Committee of Tourism Film Festivals (CIFFT), joining the prestigious CIFFT Circuit, a global competition for tourism videos and campaigns.

As the festival prepares for its 9th edition, scheduled for September 13-21, 2024, we spoke with Santi Valldepérez to gain insights into what participants can expect.
