Film Friendly Serbia is a program originally created by the Serbia Film Commission specifically to improve cooperation between the film industry and the public sector. The program essentially standardizes film permitting processes, rates and time frames and thereby improves the environment for all filmmakers working in Serbia.
It helps public bodies, government, various ministries, municipalities, public institutions that are in charge of managing filming locations and issuing film permits to build capacity as they provide highly professional and efficient support to the film and television industries. A set of criteria has been developed that participating organizations need to meet in order to be certified by the SFC as "film friendly".
More than 30 cities, municipalities and institutions have already been certified as "film friendly". Film Friendly Certification process is free of charge.
