The aim of this article is to reflect on how Spain's producers are affected by globalization and its attendant economic changes. Contrasting the practices of El Deseo and other major producers in the Spanish Film industry, this study shows that the new conditions demand strategies of transnationalization of capital and professionals to survive. However, alongside these practices, we find the permanence of the national in the resilience of traditional forms of creating Spanish films, grounded in national themes and reliant on long-existing channels of dissemination. This co-existence of the old and the new suggests a need to address the terminology and analytical strategies of studies into the transnationalization of cinema, when applied to the case of the Spanish industry.
