Belgium is the most attractive country for co-productions with a producer from abroad. With thanks to the taxshelter. Over the past ten years film production in Europe increased by 47 percent. This appears from a publication of the European Audiovisual Observatory, which has a strong focus on the importance of European co-productions. In that respect, Belgium scores very high. In most countries, more purely national films, then co-productions are made, except in Belgium and Luxembourg. That Belgium is a small country, it plays a role, but the taxshelter makes our country an attractive place for at least a part of the film to produce. The report also mentions the strong intake infrastructure and language skills as strengths. That writes The Standard.
