Something for the Swedish ministry of culture to pickup as well? Good or bad ? Buy VFX for 6,5 million $ and get 1,3 million back.
The German Ministry of Culture has renewed the DFFF film fund, which will dole out €60 million ($77.6 million) a year in film subsidies from 2013 through 2015.
This time around special effects will count in determining German participation in production subsidy applications, with foreign productions eligible for vfx subsidies if they use local firms whether or not they shoot in the country.
Productions must spend a minimum of $6.5 million on vfx in Germany to apply for the 20% subsidy as of 2013.
