The Tax Rebate for International Productions is granted selectively by the CNC (French National Center for Cinema, TV and the moving image) to the French production services company, on the basis of a scale of points validating the link of this work with culture, heritage and the French territory. It represents 30% of the film expenses in France, and can reach a maximum of 30 million euros. The works concerned achieve, in qualifying expenditures incurred in France, at least 250 000 €, or, when the overall production budget is less than 500 000 €, at least 50% of this overall budget.
The South Region (with the support of the National Center for Cinema, TV and the moving image) helps film and audiovisual creation and production via an assistance fund:
For each kind of support, an advisory reading committee, chaired by a recognized critic and public personality and composed of professionals, is responsible for selecting the projects presented according to artistic and feasibility criterias. The recommendations of the committees are then submitted to the approval of the regional elected representatives.
