Film panel get funds

World Brief

Local bizzers have financed the Czech Republic’s first film commission to help attract projects to the country after the government failed to act.

The Czech Film Commission is a one-woman body under the stewardship of director Ludmila Claussova.

Fledgling org is now touting its first English-language online directory (Filmcommission.cz) as “not that cool or fun but clear and well-structured.”

With a budget of just $65,000 a year, the commission is “as lean as it gets,” said Claussova.

Goal is an intensive economic study of the film sector to encourage the Czech state to provide tax credits or other incentives for foreign productions, as neighboring countries already do.
