COVID-19: Start of shooting & Safety measures

Film Shooting © jumpstory

Filming is about to begin again in Austria in early June 2020!

In a kind of pioneering position, the country suceeded in setting up a breakdown subsidy to cover risks in the event of filming breaks (in total 25 million euros).

These non-repayable grants can amount to up to 75 percent of production costs per production and are applicable retrospectively from March 16, 2020 to the end of 2021.
For more information, please contact the AWS - Austria Wirtschaftsservice.

In addition, the Austrian film associations – in coordination with the Ministry of Health, published a comeback work concept for filming in the field of film and television during the Corona crisis.

The EUFCN - European Film Commissions Network collects European guidelines for production during COVID-19 in order to making them available to all professionals shooting in Europe.

Austria, and especially Tyrol, offers German efficacy, the beauty of Switzerland and the charm of Italy.
I really love to return to this place where I truly admire the people, and where it is possible to make films, on location, with a remarkable level of support and infrastructure.
