In order to encourage internationalization of the film industry and strengthen the position of Serbia for high-budget productions, the Ministry of Economy has introduced a higher rate of 30% cash rebate for feature films with minimum Serbian spend of 5.000.000 EUR. This decision became effective on August 10th, 2019.
The fourth year of the implementation of the Incentive Programme in Serbia was the most successful so far. In 2019 over 40 projects have already received funding from the incentives with call for projects being open all year round. The most prominent titles to receive Serbian cash rebate were Johnny Depp’s Minamata and Crawl, released in cinemas in July 2019.
This brings the total figures to over 150 supported projects since its inception in April 2016. The total level of attracted investments is expected to surpass 100 million by the end of 2019.
