Spanish films made more at the international box office than domestically, according to a report released at the annual Madrid de Cine.
Pedro Pérez, president of Spanish producers association Fape, said it was the fourth consecutive year that Spanish films had collected more box office takings outside of the country’s borders.
International takings were $200m in 2012 compared with $157m in Spain.
The data was collected by Fapae, Rentrak and the European Audiovisual Observatory.
The number of Spanish films exhibited internationally rose to 28.2% and the amount of prints distributed grew by 57.7%.
Italy screened the most Spanish films (37) while the biggest box office takings were in Mexico, which generated $23.6m from Spanish movies.
The Fapae-Rentrak award for the most successful Spanish film abroad went to the producers of tsunami drama The Impossible: Enrique Lavigne and Belén Atienza for Apaches Entertainment and Ghislain Barrois and Alvaro Agustín for TeleCinco.
