The series ‘Intimacy’, by Txintxua (with Azegiñe Urigoitia as a costume designer), has reached number 1 on Netflix’s global non-English language charts this summer. The film and television industry in the Basque region has shown signs of real growth and international recognition.

For example, the leading Basque production company Irusoin is producing Disney+’s most important television project in Spain, ‘Balenciaga’ (with costume designers Pepo Ruiz and Bina Daigeler). In this case, “Disney wanted to shoot in the Basque Country because the character and the story originate from the region”, says the producer, Xabi Berzosa, who has observed a crowded market with three or four simultaneous shoots.
Among them, the Mediapro Studio’s ‘Las Pelotaris’ (with the costume designer Bubi Escobar). In addition, new developments are expected next year with the launch of tax credits of up to 70% in Bizkaia.
