Andorra Film Locations
Andorra is a small mountain state located in the Pyrenees mountains between France and Spain. The entire country can be crossed by car in less than an hour. It is known for its rugged mountains, snow skiing in the winter and green valleys with bubbling streams in the warmer months.
Film locations of note include Andorra la Vella, Canillo, Arinsal, Les Escaldes, El Pas de la Casa, Soldeu, and El Tarter, to name a few.
Andorra Film Location Permits
Andorra is a film friendly country. There are no unusual rules and regulations. Please contact us for location specific information.
When To Shoot?
November to April are the best months for snow looks. May to September are the warmest months with July to August busy with tourists on summer holidays. For monthly weather statistics please see here.
Public holidays may affect timing, availability and costs. See here for public holiday dates in Andorra.
Costs & Tax Incentives
Costs. Andorra trades in the Euro. It is a small country with little to no film infrastructure so having to bring in all crew and equipment from abroad can add significantly to your costs. Barcelona is the closest major production centre, a 3 hour drive away. Our Andorran fixer / service producer will negotiate local deals and provide the appropriate level of production support to match every budget.
Tax Incentives. At present there are no tax incentives for foreign commercials or feature films shooting in Andorra.
Film Crew & Talent
Crews. Andorra has a very small pool of local directors, directors of photography and stills photographers. All key crew should be brought in from abroad. Andorra’s close proximity to major European production centres allows easy access to those experienced pools of crew.
Contact us if you are looking for a director, DP, photographer, videographer (cameraman / camera operator), camera assistant (focus puller), sound operator, grip, gaffer, stylist, hair and makeup, PA / runner, production driver, or any other film crew for your shoot in Andorra.
Talent is non-union and buyouts are negotiable. The local talent pool is very small so it is advised to bring in featured talent from abroad. Andorrans, who are ethnically Catalan, are a minority in their own country; Spaniards, Portuguese, French, Britons, and Italians make up two thirds of Andorra’s population. All other talent looks can be easily brought in from nearby European production centres.
Andorra Film Equipment
You will need to bring in all camera, grip and lighting equipment from abroad. For productions looking to bring in film equipment Andorra is an ATA carnet country.
Art Department, Studios, Backlots, & Post Production
Art department and set construction is very basic.
Studios and backlots. None exist at present.
Post Production. Post abroad.
Visas & Work Permits
Andorra is not part of the Schengen Area. However, since Andorra can only be accessed through France and Spain (both Schengen Area members) their rules will apply. Andorra has border controls with both France and Spain, so make sure if you need a visa to enter the Schengen Area, that you have a multiple-entry visa, so when leaving you will be allowed back into France or Spain. Citizens of EU countries are required to present either national identity cards or passports to enter Andorra, while everyone else needs to present a passport. US passport holders can enter visa-free for stays of up to 90 days. Contact your local Andorran embassy or representative for more information.

Transportation Infrastructure is up to expected European standards. Barcelona is the closest major international airport 3 hours drive from Andorra.
