On a regional level, the Valencian Community has a budget for film funding thanks to CulturArts (applicable to feature-length films, short films, animation, drama and digital platforms) if production is taking place in the region, if the film is being co-produced by a local producer and if Valencians are being employed. All the terms can be found at www.culturartsgeneralitat.es.
In the City of Valencia, the City Council exempts producers from fees for occupying public spaces if their films highlight the cultural heritage of the city.
Our goal is the strategic management and promotion of the city of Valencia within the tourist sector, which includes Valencia Film Office, a promotional tool with a wide spectrum.
VFO helps with the search for locations in the early stages, it helps establish contacts with professionals in the audiovisual sector and it also helps and guides you as your permits are processed. It also relies on numerous businesses that can provide you with accommodation, catering services, vehicle hire and more.
Film Industry Support Austria (FISA) is a film fund of the Federal Ministry of Science, Research and Economy designed to support the production of cinema films with an annual budget of 7.5 Million Euro. Funding is granted for Austrian productions, Austrian-international co-productions as well as international productions obliged to work with an Austrian service production company.
The non-repayable grant amounts to a maximum of 25% of the eligible Austrian production expenditures and is capped with 1.1 Million Euro, allocated on a "first come, first served" basis.
Basic requirements for international productions with an Austrian service production company are a minimum shoot of five days in Austria and total production costs of at least 8 Million Euro (feature films) with a minimum of 1 Million Euro spent in Austria. To qualify, the production has to pass a "Cultural Test"
VIENNA FILM FUND
The Vienna Film Fund subsidizes feature films for cinematic release (minimum length of 70 minutes), children's films and documentaries (minimum length of 59 minutes) and TV movies.
The annual budget for subsidies is 11.5 Million Euro. The maximum subsidy amount is 700.000 Euro. Funding will be granted for project development, script development, film production and film distribution.
An independent jury of experts selects the films on four scheduled submission dates. The decisive criteria for receiving a subsidy are the film project's cultural, economic and artistic significance for Vienna. At least 100% of the funds provided must be spent for employing Viennese film-industry workers, the city's film infrastructure or for Vienna as a location.
AUSTRIAN TELEVISION FUND
The Austrian Television Fund subsidizes Austrian films and co-productions involving Austrian and foreign partners. The annual budget for subsidies is 13.5 Million Euro. The maximum subsidy amount is 1 Million Euro for TV movies, and 200.000 Euro for TV documentaries and series (per episode). The minimum length is 23 minutes.
150% of the funding has to be spent in Austria. An Austrian co-producer as well as the cooperation of an international or national TV-station is necessary to apply for the funding. On four scheduled submission dates the general manager of the Austrian Television Fund selects films for subsidies.
Grants can be awarded to cover a maximum of 20% of reasonable overall production costs. The decisive criterion for receiving a subsidy is the TV production's explicit cultural significance for Austria or Europe.
AUSTRIAN FILM INSTITUTE
The Austrian Film Institute is the national film funding agency supporting cinema productions as a cultural product and the Austrian film business. The annual budget for subsidies is 20 Million Euro. The maximum subsidy amount is 800.000 Euro.
Funding will be granted for project development, script development, film distribution and for Austrian films or international co-productions which were developed by an Austrian production company.
International co-productions may be eligible for funding if the Austrian co-production partner fulfills the funding criteria and the project complies with the respective interstate film agreement. Should no such agreement exist, the Austrian financial, creative, and technical contribution must amount to a minimum of 30 percent of the total project. In case of international co-productions, the Austrian Film Institute will only fund the Austrian portion of the project but will assess the entire production for eligibility.
Please let me know what kind of cooperation you are looking for. Unfortunately the VIENNA FILM COMMISSION can't be of any financial assistance, but we are happy to help with shooting permits, finding the right service- or coproduction and so on.

Ealing Studios is THE oldest continually operating film studios in the world and is the go to dry hire and enigmatic office of choice for Woody Allen, Martin Scorcese and Steven Spielberg when they are shooting in London.....which whilst not a frequent occurance speaks volumes for the estemed regard that the best in the business hold the 'other White House' in which is the name of the Sir Michael Balcon original main building on Ealing Green, London W5.
We dont take ourselves too seriously either....not least because Monty Python made it their home also and from then on every ground breaking English comedy series from Fawlty Towers, Ripping Yarns, and even Dr Who have filmed here (you should've seen the sets in the early days...and those Cyber costumes ..on BBC budgets)!
What you will also discover is that the reason we are relaxed is because we have over 25 years continuous experience sourcing and delivering scintillating locations in a city that is as busy as it is complex. Trust us to cut through the bureaucracyon time, every time. Even within 24hrs. Just ask Jon Cassar.
What makes London stand out is quite frankly our talent, experience and as ever our British humour.
Ealing is synonymous with humour and the studios are famous the world over for their comedy productions of the 30's, 40's and 50's.
What relevance has this past for today?
We're relaxed, even confident.... in our ability to offer an experienced service which will directly pay off for your next production. Saving precious time and therefor money is a given, doing it without without cutting corners on creative standards is priceless.
Location finding; private residential properties, industrial / commercial to down right quirky, we will arrange your parking, advise on traffic control measures, arrange wet downs, Health & Safety and lock off more roads than central London. Just ask Jon.

Norway is the land of the fjords, it is the birthplace of skiing, and the land of the midnight sun. Not only is the midnight sun a wonderful sight, it also gives you more hours to shoot and magical light.
Impressive waterfalls cascades down the mountainsides and rivers grow strong in green and fertile valleys. The biggest cities such as Bergen and Alesund, offer epic views from surrounding mountains.
Norway might be at its best when being itself, but easily doubles for Greenland, Alaska, even the Himalayas, Siberia and the Antarctic. Come May and June and you can still shoot snow scenes in the mountains, and colourful summer scenes an hour's drive down to the fjord.
As a region Lower Silesia can offer English speaking professionals, full production service and equipment and unique shooting locations like: mountains, waterfalls and forests ("The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian", 2008, by Andrew Adams, shot in Szklarska Poreba/Kamienczyk Waterfall and Kudowa Zdroj/Table Mountains or "Game Count", 2016, by Agnieszka Holland, shot in Klodzko Valley), historical cities with diverse architecture (Oscar Winner "Character", 1997, by Mike van Diem or "Bridge of Spies", 2015, by Steven Spielberg - both shot in Wroclaw), a lot of old castles and palaces ("The Valley of the Gods", 2016, by Lech Majewski, Ksiaz and Czocha Castles) and much more.
