Estonia chosen as one of the best countries in the world for film production based on incentives

The No Film School have put together a comprehensive list of the world's best countries to make films based on government incentives and rebates. Estonia was ranked number one in the Eastern European category.  Here's why:

Film commission: Estonian Film Institute

Financial incentive: Up to 30% cash rebate for film productions. There are also hefty sums available for development, pre-production, post-production, and distribution

Requirements: The amount of aid is calculated as a percentage of the costs done in Estonia (up to 30%) and paid out retroactively after all the expenses are audited. The maximum grant can be applied if the film production uses Estonian-based filmmakers, actors, and other production crew. It can also be applied if the story is set in Estonia.
