Secure Financing

 

Soft money

National and regional Governments encourage investment into their respective film industries by creating incentive programmes for producers. These grants and tax credits are broadly put in place to attract producers to film or complete post-production in these particular regions. These programmes are created in return for promoting culture and tourism, as well as to develop economic growth in that region. Some conditions have to be met but they are largely systematic and the grants remain readily accessible. National or regional bodies do not usually expect any financial returns generated from the exploitation of the film.
