21 new projects receive support from the Netherlands Film Production Incentive

Twenty-one new film projects, including 15 international co-productions, have received cash rebates totalling 5.4 million euro during the latest round of the Netherlands Film Production Incentive. The expected production spend in the Netherlands on these projects will amount to over 24 million euro.

Support has been granted to fourteen feature films, one animated film and six feature-length documentaries. International co-productions include the UK/US feature film The Price by Síofra Campbell, which will mainly shoot in the Netherlands and Handle with Care by Norwegian director Arild Andresen, who won the Berlinale Crystal Bear in 2011 with his feature film Keeper'n til Liverpool. Also supported is the Dutch 3D animated film The Little Vampire by Richard Claus and Karsten Kiilerich, and the Mexican feature Time Share by Sebastian Hofmann, the post-production of which will mainly take place in the Netherlands.

Doreen Boonekamp, CEO of the Netherlands Film Fund: “The Netherlands Film Production Incentive is clearly attracting an eclectic range of film projects and new production activity to the Netherlands. At the start of the new support scheme in 2014 international projects mostly decided on post-production in the Netherlands. Now we are seeing a clear increase in other key crew personnel from the Netherlands, such as composers, production designers and sound technicians, and many more international co-productions are choosing to shoot in the Netherlands”.
Cash rebates of up to 30% of qualifying Dutch spend are available for features, full-length documentaries and animated feature films. The final round of 2015 is scheduled for November 3 with an available budget of 11,433,667 million euro.
