The promotional film “The Majestic Adventures of Ofelia de Souza” received the 2nd prize in the “Tourism Products” category at the Amorgos Tourism Film Festival, in Greece.
The 13th edition of the Amorgos Tourism Film Festival took place from 4 to 9 November, and the winners were announced this Tuesday. “The Majestic Adventures of Ofelia de Souza” was one of the 25 awardees, having won 2nd prize in the “Tourism Products” category.
The Greek festival, which this year had 145 submissions from 50 countries, is organised by the Cultural Association of Women of Amorgos, the municipality of Amorgos and the South Aegean region.
Since 2017, it has been an official member of the International Committee of Tourism Film Festivals (CIFFT), as part of the CIFFT Circuit, which brings together tourism film festivals from around the world.
As this Greek festival is the last on the circuit this year, the global competition has now closed the rankings of the various categories (“Cities”, “Regions”, “Countries”, “Services” and “Tourism Products”) of the World’s Best Tourism Films.
With a total of 86 points, “The Majestic Adventures of Ofelia de Souza” took first place in the ranking of the “Tourism Products” category, which means that it is one of the winners of the 34th edition of the World's Tourism Film Awards, scheduled to take place on November 24th, in the Spanish city of Valencia.
Launched in October last year, the film produced by Kobu Agency stars Ofelia de Souza, an experienced 72-year-old event planner and epicurean who, alongside her personal assistants Ofelier and Ofeliette, shares tips and secrets for choosing and enjoying the Porto and North region, one of the best business tourism destinations in the world.
All the character’s costumes and interactions refer to products and spaces representative of the design, culture, industry and fashion of the region, in a film that intends to show that the destination has what is needed for organising major events.
This campaign, which will continue next year, reinforces the commitment to position the region as a leading destination in the MICE area.
