Many international producers are rediscovering Croatia as the best value for their money. Why not try us yourself?

Croatia, where is it? Thanks to 1,500 years of Croatian culture, we Croats like to think of ourselves as relatively well known (at least in Europe). Nevertheless, the question is among the most common we hear from foreign producers when we first meet.

Bordering Hungary, Italy, and countries of the former Yugoslavia, Croatia’s territory is fortunate to span some 90% of the east Adriatic Sea coast.

Croatia offers a wide range of filming locations within a few hours of each other. Thanks to their proximity, we also provide full shoot support from the forested mountains of Slovenia to the inland territory of Bosnia & Herzegovina, dotted with Ottoman, Orthodox, and Soviet-era architecture.

In the eastern part of Croatia, you’ll find plains, fields, oak woods, and wetland landscapes. The urban center features Austro-Hungarian architecture reminiscent of Vienna or Budapest with many medieval walls and castles.

Moving westward you’ll find high mountain ranges, lakes, pine forests, and the sea. Stretching south are more than 600 km of coastline and more than 1,000 islands with beautiful beaches, bays, and port towns with Mediterranean architecture.

Croatia has a long tradition in the film industry, and the country offers a tax rebate for foreign film productions. Crews here have worked on Hollywood productions dating back to the 1950’s. More recently, production house Caviar and Netflix have tapped into our expertise for their narrative projects.

The Croatian capital of Zagreb is where camera, grip, and lighting rentals, as well as production teams, are stationed. Good transport links minimize the distance between different locations.

The standard working day is 12 hours, there are no union film workers, overtime hours are not progressive, and all standard film equipment is available. Special equipment can be transported with minimal overhead costs from Austria or Germany.

A large number of sunny days throughout the year, the Mediterranean climate, and the ability to shoot in the coastal area almost throughout the calendar year make Croatia a very desirable destination for filming.

A remarkable collection of creatives have come to our country to realize their visions. It has been our honor to provide full support for their work.

And we look forward to doing the same for you, so don’t hesitate to contact us for your next shoot.
