Netflix and Italian Film Commissions establish TV and Cinema Support Fund in covid-19 emergency, to support workers in the industry.

The aim of the fund is to provide short term support to the crews of the industry which have been directly hit by the shut down of productions. Hence, Netflix has offered one million euros for the fund, which will be managed by Italian Film Commissions. While eligibility criteria are yet to be defined, Italian Film Commissions has declared they will be posted on their website as soon as they can.

The establishment of the TV and Cinema Support Fund in covid-19 emergency is part of Netflix’s worldwide initiative, which has created a $100 million dollars fund for the support of the audiovisual.
