Lithuanian Film Centre runs the Film Register and grants film indexes based on age restrictions on the audience.
The aim of the Film Register is to record and store information about films distributed and publicly screened in Lithuania in order to ensure the protection of copyright and related rights.
The Film Register includes all films produced in Lithuania as well as films imported into Lithuania for distribution and public showing, except for those films which are shown in festivals, retrospectives and other events intended for the satisfaction of cultural, artistic and educational needs of the general public.
A film is registered after it is being grated an index by setting the age restriction on the audience.
Films are indexed by setting age restrictions on the audience by the Lithuanian Film Centre at the proposal of the Film Indexing Commission. The Film Indexing Commission consists of 7 members from different state and public institutions.
Films screened at festivals, seminars, retrospectives and other events intended for the satisfaction of cultural, artistic and education needs of the general public are indexed by the organisers of such events who indicate age restrictions on the audience.
With the Lithuanian Tax incentives scheme, the production company receives up to 20% of the budget when filming in Lithuania and the local donor is motivated by the opportunity to reduce the local corporate income tax.
The new scheme involves a foreign production company, a Lithuanian production company, a local donor providing financial support to the film and the Lithuanian Film Centre that administers the scheme. Producers can apply at any time during the year.
