The Lithuanian Film Centre has recently announced the results of the national tax-incentive scheme for film production for last year. Implemented in 2014, the Lithuanian Film Tax Incentive covers up to 30% of the production budget, and as has also been announced, the scheme will be effective in its current form until 31 December 2023. As we previously reported (see the news), the incentive is available for the production of feature films, TV series, documentaries and animated films, and foreign producers are eligible to partake with a local producer attached as a co-producer or as a provider of production services.
The jury of development award for co-productions between Italy and the Baltic States announced the winners of the prize in Trieste Co-Production Forum “When East Meets West”.
