Germany offers percentage-based reimbursements to international production of non-German projects that are produced completely or partially in the country. These incentives are made available for feature films, documentaries, TV features, and TV series production. Commercial productions are not eligible.
The criteria determining eligible costs and the percentages vary in each federal state of Germany.
The cost savings generally range between 20-30%, though special cases can reach up to 50%.

Your productions can benefit from the city’s historical architecture and diverse locations as well as fashion, counterculture and a broad selection of German actors and friendly local faces. Of course, one can’t overlook other film-friendly German cities like Cologne.
