In The Netherlands we offer a 30% cash rebate for international drama series or film productions. The rebate is 30% on eligible and qualifying Dutch spend in The Netherlands for film projects. Qualifying costs apply for all Dutch crew, Dutch cast, and equipment from The Netherlands. Besides this financial benefit, shooting in The Netherlands is very cost effective with competitively priced & completely English-speaking crews, first-class logistical infrastructure, and a wide diversity of interior and exterior film locations at a short distance.
To apply, projects need to be financed for at least 50%, and they need to be fully financed 6 months after the decision of the Fund, or before their first shooting day. Films need to have a production budget of at least 600.000 Euros with a minimum of 150.000 Euros of qualifying Dutch spend. A theatrical release in The Netherlands is obliged.

There are many reasons for shooting in the Netherlands. And it is not only because of the famous historical cities, canals, windmills and flowergardens, and people walking on wooden shoes.
The Netherlands has a wide range of both classic locations and modern architecture, flatlands, wide meadows and ‘polders’, beaches, castles and spacious houses. And we can also provide for studio facilities if needed.
Being a small nation, all locations can be reached within limited time from Amsterdam and Rotterdam. Our crews are very flexible and English speaking. Further, we provide various ethnicities for casting. 99% of cast speaks English. Belgium and the UK are next door, and we have close connections with casting agencies in those countries.
As a trading nation, we know how to be of service. And we love to be of service. As well as providing creative input whenever needed.
