Seville is boosting its industry heft. In its second edition, the Seville Intl. Locations Expo, which runs parallel to the Seville European Film Festival, is extending its range beyond features and television, opening the door to the advertising production sector and attracting players from the world of TV spotmaking.

Aimed at presenting a European take on the locations business, SILE has announced a swathe of activities, which kick off Nov. 11 with “An International Encounter of Financiers and Producers.”

Meeting offers a strong presence from Germany, including Daniel Baur of K5 Media Capital, Peacefulfish’s Juliane Schulze and Deutsche Bank’s Bernhard Stampfer — plus France’s Pascual Guerrin of Backup Films.

Expected from the U.K. are Prescience’s Paul Brett and Future Films’ Pablo Carrera. Colombian fund Dynamo Capital partner Michel Rubin and Spanish Vertice 360’s Manuel Monzon are also slated to attend.

Stampfer will moderate a roundtable on European tax shelters.

CEO Harry Tracosas of Los Angeles-based Global Production Network, which reps a roster of production service companies around the world, will moderate a panel discussing location shooting and obtaining permits.

Santiago Pozo and Gonzalo Martin will analyze the import opportunities presented by the U.S. Hispanic market.

“One of our objectives is to provide a comprehensive overview of current trends,” says SILE director Adriana Piquet, from the Seville External Promotion Assn.

Last year SILE’s first edition attracted 48 exhibitors from 15 countries and more than 700 professionals, org said. Several international and Spanish film commissions are repeat visitors for SILE’s second edition.

Newcomers include the Mallorca Tourism Foundation, Austria’s Vienna Film Commission and Cine Tirol and the Israel Film Fund.

Running Nov. 11-13, SILE unspools, like the SEFF, at Seville’s grand Casino de la Exposicion.
