State incentives for shooting in Serbia

The Republic of Serbia has a good foundation for a successful film industry as it has certified, highly qualified and educated staff from all sectors, professional teams with many years of experience, excellent locations and highly appreciated film studios. The Government of Serbia has recognized the capacity of our film industry and since 2016, the Ministry of Economy of the Republic of Serbia has been implementing the incentive program, which was taken over by the Ministry of Culture and Information in 2021, creating all necessary conditions so that the production in Serbia can reach its full potential.

The program of the permanent open competition intends that the incentive funds are realized through the return of money invested in the audiovisual work with 25% of the eligible (eligible) costs incurred by the investor in Serbia for live action film, TV film, TV series, animated film, audio and / or visual post-production of the audiovisual work and 20% for a dedicated film (commercials), under equal conditions for domestic and foreign investors. In August 2019, a new regulation was adopted, which enables the realization of 30% incentives for films whose minimum budget for realization is 5,000,000.00 euros.

The user of incentive funds can be a legal entity or natural person on whose behalf and with whose funds the production of audiovisual works in the Republic of Serbia is financed or co-financed. The legal framework for investment is the Decree on Incentives for Investors in the Republic of Serbia.

Incentive funds are intended for the investor in order to support creativity in the field of audiovisual production, strengthen cultural and economic activities and increase employment in the film industry, as well as to promote the potential of the Republic of Serbia in the cinematographic industry.
