The West Finland Film Commission finances projects in the form of production support and services, which is based on local expenditure.
WFFC’s production support:
- for productions receiving the national production incentive: up to 12.5 % of local expenditure
- for productions not receiving the national production incentive: up to 25% of 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.
To apply for WFFC’s regional production support, please send the treatment and/or the script, your production’s budget, and an estimation of the local expenditure in the Turku Region to firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you have received WFFC’s Production support, the following two logos are required in the end credits and marketing materials:
Please request the logos in needed colours and formats from email@example.com.
