Tax breaks / incentives
Films for cinema and TV, produced in Hungary are eligible for a 25% rebate based on their expenditure in the country (an incentive which has increased the value of the sector to Hungary significantly).
A wide variety of projects are eligible but have to have a local partner on board and also pass a cultural test. As an added incentive, producers can spend 25% of the budget outside Hungary without any adverse impact on the incentive. For more details take a look at the site of the Hungarian Film Fund. Hungary also has a number of co-production treaties with territories like Germany, Italy, France and Ireland.
All film categories qualify – feature, animation, documentary, experimental, tv-film, mini-series.
