Two tourism videos produced by the Tenerife Cabildo have been nominated for international tourism promotional prizes. The videos, which are below, are Memories of a Destination and Where? Tenerife, and were nominated for the Comité International de Festivales de Filmes Turísticos (CIFFT) award for best video. Both videos have already won wide acclaim, including victory in the Silver Dolphin prize in the Cannes Corporate Media and TV Awards.

Tenerife tourism chief Alberto Bernabé said that these nominations and recognition aren’t only evidence of the quality of the ideos but but become a major promotional tool to attract people to the island, in this case appealing to anyone interested in our gastronomy and those thinking of Tenerife as a filming location. Bernabé said he felt great satisfaction at the recent Cannes prize since it is “one of the most prestigious film festivals”.

Both Memories of a Destination and Where? Tenerife can be voted for online HERE, and can be viewed below.

The Awe-inspiring Punta de Teno,

This rugged, rocky headland ten kilometers from Buenavista is the most westerly point on the island and a great place to get away from the crowds and blow away the cobwebs with a bit of bracing sea air. Admire the active lighthouse perched precipitously on the rocks,...
