The decision for the Republic of Serbia to continue providing incentives to the film industry, which took the form of last week’s decree
by the government, adopted at the initiative of the Cinematography Group of the Chamber of Commerce of Serbia (CCIS), will bring a greater inflow of foreign investments in this field, new films, TV series and other cinematography projects that will be made in Serbia, but also create the conditions for the strengthening and a better positioning of local productions, experts agree, as announced by the CCIS.
– The incentives bring foreign productions and support local creators. The adopted Decree on incentives to investors to produce audiovisual works in Serbia is a continuation of the practice from the previous seasons, which has produced substantial results. More works are being filmed in Serbia than ever and there are no employees out of work in this field. Unlike the time before the incentives, when the state did not set aside enough for cinematography, we are now shoulder to shoulder with the countries in the region – said Igor Turcinovic, a film producer and a member of the Cinematography Group within the Association for the Creative Industry at the CCIS.
