French comedy Grand Froid to film in Krakow
New French comedy feature Grand Froid will film on location in the southern Polish city Krakow from January 2016.
The film is being made as a French-Belgian-Polish co-production and has the support of the Krakow International Film Fund (IFF).
“The launch of IFF raised huge interest on the European film market,” said Katarzyna Wodecka-Stubbs, general manager of Krakow Film Commission.
“Despite the lack of systemic solutions in the form of tax exemptions which are implemented in the majority of European countries, the region remains attractive to foreign producers thanks to a comprehensive database of locations, professional crew and specialists, and dynamic activity of Krakow Film Commission.”
The Grand Froid shoot will follow the Krakow filming for True Crimes, which stars Jim Carrey in the true-life story of a detective investigating a murder that closely resembles a similar act in a new novel.
Poland offers a series of regional filming incentives, but last month the new director of the Polish Film Institute called for the launch of a national incentive programme to help the country compete in Europe.
