Serbia Film Commission together with Film Center Serbia attended for the first time the Shanghai Film Market from 16th to 19th June, organized as part of the European pavilion led by European Film Commission Network, and represented benefits of filming in Serbia to Chinese production companies. The meetings held with production companies from China showed great interest for shooting in Serbia – primarily due to the visa-free regime, attractive incentive programme and new locations. It is certain that this relationship will be further strengthened in the field of film and TV production given the announcement of new Sino-Serbian productions that are in development.
Beside SFC and FCS, as a national representatives, production company Vision Team from Belgrade has also participated in both Shanghai TV and Film Markets. During the past year and this one, Vision Team has serviced the production of popular TV series “Lion’s Reflection of the Laying Cat” and famous Chinese writer Chen Danyan documentary about Belgrade titled “Where the Sava Flows” with highly expected upcoming premiere. Cooperation between Chinese and Serbian productions has also been established in the field of VFX, through Crater Studio participation in the production of visual effects for the film “Airpocalypse”.
