FVG Film Commission, born in 2000, has assisted hundreds of productions, including films, documentaries, TV series, music videos and commercials. FVG FC is a founding member of EUFCN (European Film Commission Network) that is associated with the Film Commission on the European market. In 2003 the FVG Film Fund was established; which provides funding for those productions that choose regional territory for shooting. The Film Commission offers operators (movie, television, advertising anyd multimedia), the number of services is free of charge (production offices, equipment, tailors, local partnership network). The ratio between the FVG Film Commission investment and productions economic fallout is around 1 to 6.
The second good practice is related to the field of audiovisual production, an absolute quality chain in Friuli Venezia Giulia. The documentary film "Parents" has triggered unprecedented synergies at the regional level. It is, in fact, the first time that a private company of the territory enters business association with a local production according to business logic. The operation implemented by "Parents" provides for stipulation between the parties of a contract of Association in Participation, with a significant economic intervention by the investor partner. The law of contract by virtue of specific tax incentives for interventions in favour of the film industry enables the associated recognition of a tax credit equal to 40% of the financial intake. The payback is linked to the film audience and receipts in movie theatres. As regards Interreg Europe Programme Thematic priorities, this good practice mainly realizes SME competitiveness.
