Since January 2016, Estonia provides the most generous incentive in the Baltic States - a cash rebate fund for foreign film companies using Estonia as a location for their production. Support can be applied for full-length feature films, high-end TV series, animation and animation series, documentaries, and post-production services.
The amount of aid is calculated as a percentage of the spending in Estonia (up to 30%) and paid out retrospectively after all the expenses are audited. The maximum grant can be applied if the film production uses Estonian- based filmmakers, actors, and other production crew. It can also be applied for if the story is Estonian and / or set in Estonia.
Estonian Film Institute also has a Co-Production fund which is allocated for Estonian producers for an international full-length feature film, long documentary film, or animation. The co-production support allocated by Estonian Film Institute shall be spent on economic activity in Estonia.
There are also a few regional Film Funds to attract more filmmakers to a respective region in Estonia.
Please do not hesitate to contact us for more information, or send us a project you would like to produce in Estonia with us, either as a Production Service or as a Co-Production.
