The Italian Ministry of Culture has issued the call for the financing of co-productions between Italy and Portugal.
From September 27, 2021, it is possible to submit an application to access the fund of €160,000 allocated in synergy by Direzione Generale cinema e audiovisivo and Instituto do Cinema e do Audiovisual intended for Italian and Portuguese producers who have a project under development.
In order to apply, the co-production has to involve at least one Italian and one Portuguese producer who contribute at least at 20% of the development cost. Moreover, as far as the contribution granted by DG Cinema is concerned, it is necessary to have legal headquarters in the European Economic Area, tax residence in Italy and to be qualified as an independent producer.
Feature films intended for the big screen are eligible, except those for which the provisional Italian nationality has already been requested and the filming has begun.
