Their expertise

Olsberg•SPI’s expertise includes developing audiovisual content strategies, mapping out a region’s production capacity through their bespoke PICA service, designing production incentives, and undertaking robust economic impact studies.

Their work in Latin America

Olsberg•SPI has long been following the growth of the “Orange Economy” in Latin America, especially the contribution of the audiovisual industries.

They are currently working with the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) to map out the skill gaps of below-the-line technical roles across the 26 countries it supports across Latin America and Caribbean. The analysis will inform their future training programmes for the region’s audiovisual industries.

Olsberg•SPI is now offering a free Public Policy Audiovisual Diagnostic Consultation Service. This is an opportunity to discuss all aspects of a country’s public sector audiovisual strategy with the Olsberg•SPI experts, and how the strategy could be improved or updated. Further information and how to apply here.

Olsberg•SPI is available to take part and run presentations or webinars in film festivals and markets in Latin America. These can be in Spanish, Portuguese or English and based on any of the topics listed below, as well as others subject to approval.

Olsberg•SPI Associate, Steve Solot is also editor of the forthcoming free LATC publication, “The Audiovisual Public Policy Landscape in Latin America”.
