Published in the “Revista de Cinema” on June 8th, the article “The Importance of US incentives for Audiovisual Content Production for Brazilian Producers”, written by Steve Solot, President of the Latin American Training Center and Executive Director of the Brazilian Film Commission Network – REBRAFIC and Fabio Cesnik, attorney and partner of Cesnik, Quintino & Salinas Advogados, offers highlights from the Webinar on Film Finance in the US, organized by the US Consulate in Rio de Janeiro.
One of the topics discussed in the Webinar was the various incentive formats offered by the states in the US which reduce significantly the cost of production of films, TV programs and commercials, and are aimed at providing economic benefits to the regions which receive the productions.
“The incentives offered by the US states represent an important potential source to leverage Brazilian productions for those producers who intent to film in the US and are seeking specific locations, or for other reasons. It is also possible to combine those incentives with resources from Brazil made available thorough incentive legislation,” emphasized Solot and Cesnik.
