Incentives for investment in audiovisual production

Slovenian Film Center, Ministry of Culture
Describe the main features of the policy/measure: 

Financial reimbursement in the case of culturally qualified investment in AV production on the territory of the Republic of Slovenia up to 25% of justified costs. In 2017 the Republic of Slovenia implemented an amendment to the Slovenian Film Center Public Agency Act that provided a new incentive for foreign producers (or executive producers) originating from the EU, the EEA, a state partner of an EU country or third countries to benefit from subsidies if their project fulfils certain economical and cultural conditions. A part of the production, post-production, and related services has to be carried out in Slovenia. The criteria include the cultural content of the film, the use of production and post-production capacities and the collaboration of Slovene film and audiovisual professionals. As a part of having an important impact on the development of the industry, the measure itself promotes the natural and cultural heritage of Slovenia.
