From September 9th to 15th 2018, six Indian producers are exploring Austria on the initiative of AUSSENWIRTSCHAFT AUSTRIA and ROBINVILLE. In addition to visiting alpine landscapes or historical cities in four states (besides Vienna, Tyrol, Salzburg and Styria), helicopter flights or a visit to the new James Bond Experience 007Elements are on the program - in order to draw attention to the advantages of Austria as a filming location.

A special highlight of the trip was the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding between the Indian "Film & Television Producers Guild", AUSSENWIRTSCHAFT AUSTRIA and Location Austria on September 10th 2018, in order to intensify the existing cooperation between the federal states.

Productions such as "Tiger Zinda Hai" by Yash Raj Films starring Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif, shot in Tyrol in 2017, show that foreign film productions are becoming an increasingly important economic factor. In addition to cooperation with local producers or service providers in areas such as catering / transport / accommodation and the employment of numerous Austrian filmmakers, Austria's tourism benefited from increasing numbers of overnight stays, too.

India's film industry, which is considered to be the largest in the world, takes a remarkable place with about 2,000 film productions a year, of which 85 were partly shot in Austria in the last few years.
