OPPORTUNITIES FOR NON-ITALIAN OPERATORS
Development and production support for films, TV works and web products is for works of Italian nationality, including international co-productions. Italian majority, parity and minority co-productions are all given equal access to funding. Applications for funding must be submitted by the Italian co-producer.
Regardless of the type of funding granted, there are various benefits and bonuses available for international co-productions, diversified according to individual schemes.
DGCA – MiC also provides ad hoc funds for international co-productions. The selective scheme for Italian minority co-productions has an annual budget of € 5 million, split into two calls. In addition, bilateral co-development and co-production funds have been established by DGCA – MiC with corresponding institutions in other countries to foster production partnerships in other target markets.
Italian co-productions are also eligible for funding from Eurimages, Europe Creative Media and Ibermedia.
DGCA – MiC also provides a support scheme exclusively for works that are not of Italian nationality but are shot for at least one day in Italy. This is the tax credit scheme for foreign works. Applications must be submitted by the Italian line producer working under commission of a foreign producer.
