On the other hand, the Madrid City Council launched in 2021 its first line of subsidies for the production and promotion of audiovisual projects related to Madrid. In 2022, the total budget increased to EUR3 million and received 144 applications. In addition, the city council supports access to financing through Crea SGR, with a total contribution of EUR8 million to guarantee bank loans for projects.
