The Canarian Locations Office, which depends on the General Direction of Culture of the Government of Canelones, has been working since the end of October 2013.
The office has become a one-stop-shop for all the formalities that involve the audiovisual sector in our department. It is in charge of advising and authorizing the filming and photographic campaigns that take place in public spaces in the Canelones.
Moreover, it supports, participates, and promotes events linked to the sector that improve the positioning of Canelones as a film location inside and outside the borders, as well as its filmmakers (either professionals or amateurs).

The Office of Locations in Colonia (OLACOLONIA) works in the Direction of Tourism of the Municipality of Colonia and is in charge of coordinating everything related to the use of public spaces and locations in the Department of Colonia for audiovisual productions, whether photographic, advertising films, documentaries, etc.
The Municipality of Colonia, in response to the increasing demand for the use of public spaces, has begun to authorize the use of public locations.
As the industry grew and generated resources in the territory (acting roles, accommodation, catering, among other services always necessary for film production companies), the municipality improved its response capacity and so on, having as a support base a project of the Junta Departamental (from the year 2015) that promoted the creation of a Film Location Office, the Direction of Tourism began to work, together with other directorates of the Municipality (SPOT, Public Relations and Press, Culture, Traffic and Hygiene) to concretize the creation of a unit that would centralize the task.

Thus, in March 2016, by Resolution of the Intendent, OLACOLONIA was created (Office of Locations Colonia) generating a “unique window” of application for the use of locations, in order to facilitate and speed up the procedure and work for those interested in taking advantage of Colonial scenarios for their audiovisual creations.

Since then, we have registered German, French, Japanese and American productions; films, documentaries, trademark productions (photographic and film), programs of educational interest, which have developed their work in Colonia and who have been helped to carry out their work with more ease.
