Filming in Argentina

Buenos Aires is one of the top production hubs in South America, especially for commercials. The period architecture can double for locations across Europe and the city offers warm weather during the northern hemisphere’s winter.

The most famous of Argentina's recent productions is The Revenant, which depicted a snow-laden landscape and went on to win a number of Academy Awards. Marvel's Black Panther recently shot at Iguazu Falls.

 

While the country’s production industry is focussed in Buenos Aires, Argentina has a rich variety of locations available.

The country offers some extraordinary natural landscapes including the red-rock formations of Cafayate Salta, the jungles in Aguas Chiquitas, the deserts of Salinas Grandes Purmamarca and the stunning mountain ranges of Quebrada de Las Conchas.

However, the lack of any official financial incentive for international shoots does deter many big-budget productions.

"The locations were chosen with the aim to give the piece a big scale. We were looking for an international look – kind of abstract. You should not be able to point out exactly where you are, though you should feel a big city atmosphere and a very international look.”

Gaby Cárcova, Executive Producer
