Film in Georgia: Producers Will Be Able to Return 25% of Expenditures

Producers will be able to return 25% of expenditures while shooting a film in Georgia.

Prime Minister George Kvirikashvili will introduce the new direction of state program “Produce in Georgia” to the society.

Presentation will be held in exhibition centre “Karvasla” at 14:00, on January 26.

The goal of the program “Filming in Georgia”, is to become Georgia an attractive center for shooting in the Eastern Europe. Respectively, the new component will significantly support Georgia’s  popularization in terms of attracting foreign filmmakers.

The so-called cash-rebate mechanism is being introduced within the frame of the program, which envisages refund of 25% of expenditures from the spent budget.

This mechanism is approved in many countries, based on the requirements of the market and has great potential in terms of the socio-economic development.
