Iceland

Rebate incentives a real attraction

The scoop: Iceland has extended and upped its successful rebate incentive on production spend to 14%. All financing must be cleared before shooting, and an Icelandic production company link is an advantage. The Icelandic Film Center also stresses that all crew members are fluent in English, which also goes for a majority of the Icelandic people.

There’s also striking scenery, including black sand beaches, geothermal hot springs and lava fields.

Bonus: Iceland is a small country with an efficient infrastructure, so when you need a permit or permission to shoot, it’s easy to quickly find the right people to make it happen.

Shot there: “Stardust”; “Flags of Our Fathers”; Brendan Fraser starrer “Journey 3D”
