Tuscany gets lift from film fund

Film commission boosts production company

Film production in Tuscany is taking off thanks largely to a new film fund now available from the Tuscany Film Commission.

During a confab Monday at the Villa Degli Autori, commission topper Ugo Di Tullio tubthumped the fund, which will be providing $12 million over the next two years for films, TV movies and documentaries shot in the region.

It offers up to $600,000 for works by established helmers who shoot at least half of their externals in Tuscany. First-time directors will be able to tap a maximum of $270,000. Smaller amounts are available for screenplay development.

Eligible projects will have to meet cultural criteria set by a committee and have a direct connection with Tuscany. The region will be backing works as a co-producer.

The funds can be combined with Italy’s tax credits, which give international productions a 25% deduction up to a maximum of $7 million.

Recent productions shot in Tuscany include Gary Winick’s Gael Garcia starrer “Letters to Juliet.”
