Tourist Route
A new tourist route was launched in Vilnius, in April, mostly designed for British tourists who wish to visit the places where the BBC’s “War and Peace” series was filmed.
The State Department of Tourism has introduced three “War and Peace” English-language routes – on foot and by bicycle in Vilnius and by car all around the country. This is the first time a film has been used to promote tourism. The six-part historical series inspired by Leo Tolstoy’s novel was filmed almost entirely in Lithuania with the support of the local production company Baltic Film Services.

SPAIN

Heid in Cantabria
From the 31th March, Cantabria (Spain) hosts the shooting of the British-Indian film `Heidi, queen of the mountains”, directed by Bhavna Talwar, with a cast of British actors, including Bill Nighy (`Love actually’ and `Pirates of the Caribbean’), Mark Williams (`Harry Potter’ and `101 Dalmatians’), Olivia Grant (Stardust) and Helen Baxendale (Friends). Filming was made possible thanks to the support of the Cantabria Film Commission (which depends on the Ministry of Culture of Cantabria). The crew chose Spain and the region of Cantabria after visiting 20 other countries.
The crew of over a hundred people lived in the charming town of Potes for 6 weeks. This is the first film in a trilogy, all of which will be shot in Cantabria, a small but beautiful region on the north coast of Spain, with a great variety of landscapes (mountains, beaches, woods…) that is equipped with the necessary infrastructure to host a production like this.

CROATIA

Danish FIlm in Istria
Filming began on 11 April on the third part of the Danish comedy “Three Heists and a Hamster” (Alle for Tre) in numerous locations in Istria.
The film, directed by Rasmus Heide, is produced by Fridthjof Film of Copenhagen, and the servicing will be carried out by the Croatian production house Spiritus Movens.
It is about two clumsy conartist brothers, who, at the probate proceedings for their father’s will, discover that he left his greatest treasure – an old-fashioned motorcycle and sidecar – to a sister they never knew existed. The brothers head to Italy, where their sister lives, to find her and steal her valuable inheritance. Filming ended on 30 April and took in the localities of Oprtalj, Motovun, Rovinj, Barban, Pula, Bale and Kukuljanovo – Rijeka’s industrial zone.
Approximately 200 extras were hired. The production costs for 18 days of filming in Croatia will be around € 440,000 and the producers will have the right to a reimbursement of 20% of the expenditure.
