NEW DECREE ON INCENTIVES INTRODUCES 30% CASH REBATE

In order to encourage internationalization of the film industry and strengthen the position of Serbia for high-budget productions, the Ministry of Economy has introduced a higher rate of 30% cash rebate for feature films with minimum Serbian spend of 5.000.000 EUR. This decision became effective on August 10th, 2019.

The fourth year of the implementation of the Incentive Programme in Serbia was the most successful so far. In 2019 over 40 projects have already received funding from the incentives with call for projects being open all year round. The most prominent titles to receive Serbian cash rebate were Johnny Depp’s Minamata and Crawl, released in cinemas in July 2019.

This brings the total figures to over 150 supported projects since its inception in April 2016. The total level of attracted investments is expected to surpass 100 million by the end of 2019.

New Decree and other information regarding Incentives are updated on page INCENTIVES.

IN PRODUCTION: Feature-length Documentary film “Solčence zahaja”

Bandur Film is currently in production of feature-length documentary film “Solčence zahaja”, a very ambitious take by young writer and director Stefan Krasic and musicologist Ana Hofman, who is trying to find the origins of an old Slovenian folk song that children in Serbia (Yugoslavia) used to sing in schools.

Plot thickens when Ana and her colleagues discover that it is not a folk song. And it definitely is not Slovenian, but more likely a Tito’s experiment, a part of a wider conspiracy…

The film is being made with the support of Film Center Serbia.

It will be filmed in Belgrade, Nis, Ljubljana and New York.

INCENTIVES – Going UP! 25% CASH REBATE!

The Ministry of Economy of the Government of Serbia has announced a Call for Applications on April 15, 2016 for film and TV incentives that is open year round. The program provides a 25% cash rebate on qualified Serbian spend for feature films, TV series, animation films and visual effects, TV commercials and documentaries.

When we started with the Incentives back in 2016, it was 20% with total budget of 4 million USD.

The budget for 2018 is 8 million USD with the possibility of the budget re-balance in September!

Land for the Massive Scenes, or for Building the Whole New World!!!

We discovered and obtained possibility to use the flat lot of some 90ha of land, surrounded by patches of woods and nothing else, 15 minutes from the hi-way, only 20 km to Belgrade.

It is far away from all the noises and it is suitable for building and preserving, to indefinite, master pieces of Serbian and foreign production designers and the master builders, regardless of the size or the fact that it will be used only once.

Perfect for the massive scenes, or for building the whole new world.

We are looking forward to start with it, together with local representatives and their communities!

Air Serbia makes history as first New York service takes off!

Great news for air travellers and businessmen!

Air Serbia makes history as first New York service takes off!
