  • The 11th Advertising Film Production Conference is here.

Our APCP Advertising Film Production Conference will take place on 5 and 6 October in Valencia, under the slogan “Making the impossible possible” and with which we will highlight the work of production companies.

“Advertising is a game of impossibilities. Creatives think of things that have never happened, that have never been seen before. Things that no one has ever done before. In commercials there are no rules: pigs fly, clouds smell and monkeys drive by you with a crossbow. Everything that in the real world is impossible, someone has to make it possible. And that someone is always a production company”.

In addition, as part of these, we will be celebrating the 6th edition of the APCP Awards, for which voting by the jury has already begun, and we will soon announce the shortlist!
