Within the range of a few hundred kilometres, Friuli Venezia Giulia draws a number of diverse landscapes together: impressive coasts, smooth hills, blooming plains and snowy mountains. And, often, cities such as Trieste, Gorizia, Udine and Pordenone hide ambience, unspoiled by the movie and television industries, which propose themselves to any concievable interpretation and project.
1. FINANCIAL: Remarkable reduction of hotel expenses.
2. TECHNICAL: General info about production resources, liaison with local professionals offering production services, PR an press agency services.
3. LOGISTICAL: Visits to the locations detected by the production, location scouting regarding other possible shooting sets, welcome and lodgings, direct liaison with local Public Officials, assistance with bureaucratic proceedings.
With the FVG Film Fund the Autonomous Region of Friuli Venezia Giulia will be actually able to finance an audiovisual project using direct funds. Productions filming in Friuli Venezia Giulia will be entitled to apply for a grant in cash up to 140.000 Euro, depending on the production's period of stay in the regional territory.
Of course, as regularly is with all institutions of so-called "expense acceleration", the Friuli Venezia Giulia fund settles some grantee liabilities.
The main liabilities are:
A) At least 150% of the regional grant must be spent in the region itself, with the exception of crews and investment expenses
B) Filming in the region must equal at least 70% of the entire external filming of the cut, and at least 50% of the total filming of the cut , except for productions filming in the region for less than 5 weeks and for serials of more than 2 episodes. As far as the letter are concerned, filming in the region must equal at least 10% of the entire external filming of the cut.
Added value are the useful and free services provided by the film commission, such as location scouting, location visits, permits and the liaison with local authorities and professionals.
