Audiovisual media
The Audiovisual sector participates in the development of cinema and television content. Colombia is an interesting locale for international producers and television stations due to labour superiority, great locations and the class of Colombian directors. In addition, the growth of hotel infrastructure in Colombia has attracted interest from large production companies to work in the country.
Colombia is one of seventeen countries in the world identified as mega diverse because it is home to a large portion of the planet's biodiversity. It features a variety of ecosystems including snow-capped mountains, moors, valleys, tropical rainforests, deserts and access to two oceans.
