Tax breaks / incentives
There are no fiscal incentives in the form of major tax breaks currently available in Denmark. There are, however, subsidies available through the Danish Film Institute for the development and production of exclusively Danish films and for international co-productions. It is the national agency responsible for supporting and encouraging film and cinema culture and for conserving these in the national interest, and works in a similar way to its counterparts in Sweden and Norway. It is also worth noting the Copenhagen Film Fund (CFF). Worth around 5 million Euros a year, the CFF is designed to attract international production partners and has been up and running for several years now.
During the Cannes Film Festival in May 2014, a co-production agreement was signed between Denmark and New Zealand, strengthening the ties in the film and TV industries in the two countries. It allows filmmakers from both countries to seek funding from the other, as well as streamlining application processes.
