Since Mid-June 2020, it is possible to apply for financial assistance for film and TV productions in which shooting had to be delayed or interrupted as a consequence of COVID-19. Assistance is available in the form of a grant of up to EUR 2.5 million per production to cover additional costs incurred.

In the case of international service productions funded by FISA (Film Industry Support Austria), this grant equals up to 50 percent of the additional eligible costs incurred in Austria due to COVID-19.

Applications can be submitted until 30th June 2021.
