A real benefit is that due to its location (relatively close to both Hungary's Budapest as well as Bucharest), filmmakers in the region can also apply for both the Romanian and Hungarian filming incentives when filming in and around the Cluj-Napoca area.

Hungary's incentives allow for cross border filming and the tax credit can be up to 25%. In Romania itself, producers can apply for a slice of the development and production funding distributed by the Romanian National Film Centre.
