Financing

Regional financing

The West Finland Film Commission finances projects in the form of production support and services, which is based on local expenditure. Production support is negotiated case by case directly with the Film Commissioner. In addition to our financing, the commission also helps productions find private equity within the region.

National production incentive

Productions that come to West Finland are also eligible to apply for the national production incentive, which is in the fast and simple form of a 25% cash rebate. Please note that for all projects at least 50% of the overall production budget must be other than public funding defined in the Act of Discretionary Government Transfers (688/2001).
