Incentives Scorecard: France Raises Tax Rebate to Lure More International Productions

France TV and Film Production Incentives

The land of iconic locations such as Versailles and the Eiffel Tower … the country of Bond-pic car chases along the winding roads of the Riviera … and home of Cannes, the granddaddy of all film festivals, just raised its tax rebate from 20% to a hefty 30%, effective Jan. 1, creating a buzz in the international production community, and luring a growing number of film and TV projects to the land of brie, baguettes — and romance.

30% Tax rebate for international productions wholly or partly made in France by a non-French company
$1.13m Minimum spend, or:
50% Amount of total budget that must be spent in France
34m Maximum available per project (up from previous $22.7 million)
