Berlinale: Portugal plans formal filming incentive

LisbonPortugal plans to launch its first formal filming incentive within weeks, a move that should help the country compete more effectively with France and Spain.

The transferable rebate will be worth between 20% and 25% of eligible production spending for films, feature-length documentaries and animations that spend at least €1m in Portugal.

There are no details yet of any per-production caps, which could impact the rebate’s appeal to international producers.

Portugal is known mainly as a commercials production hub and offers lots of experienced service companies, so the new rebate could help bring big-budget international features to the country.

The new programme is likely to make south-west Europe a more competitive production market. 

France already offers a Tax Rebate for International Production (TRIP). Last year the government increased the rebate figure from 20% to 30%, leading to a huge spending increase spearheaded by location filming for Christopher Nolan’s upcoming war epic Dunkirk.

Spain also recently launched its first formal filming incentive and has had a profile boost hosting scenes for HBO’s fantasy series Game of Thrones.
