The Spanish government could sue Netflix after it turns out that their latest feature film release called “Ibiza” was completely shot in Croatia and not on the Mediterranean island. The new film, which hits the screens on the 25th of May, depicts a group of girl’s adventure to Ibiza, however all of the sun swept beach and disco scenes were actually recorded on the Croatian Adriatic.
The Ibiza government has been quoted as filing a lawsuit against the filmmaker and the digital platform, because they believe that they should have used the Ibiza brand when filming a feature film called “Ibiza” rather than depicting the landscape of Croatia.
In a comedy "Ibiza", a 30-year-old girlfriend travels with her two friends to Barcelona and Ibiza where they enter the wild world discos and parties and find love.
Party all summer long on Zrce
The Iberian Government Tourism Office points out that the film presents the "worst stereotypes" of this Spanish island and is contrary to the promotional tourist policy that these and other institutions are implementing. Authorities want to change the image of the island as a place of alcohol and wild parties.
The film was shot in Split and on the beach Zrće on the island of Pag.
