Filming in Romania

Plans have been unveiled to install an official film incentive programme in Romania before the end of the year, with talks currently being held between the Romanian National Film Centre and Romania’s Ministry of Culture. While the details of the incentive have yet to be finalised, in its current state it will offers tax relief of up to 30% to productions that spend a minimum amount of EUR30 million in the country.

Romania has over the years become a popular international filming location. High-profile US productions have included the comedy-caper War Dogs and the biopic miniseries, Harley and the Davidsons.

The country also launched a website called Location Guide Romania that offers information on regional production resources.

Location Guide Romania offers a fresh perspective, an intuitive and integrated package of services that will become the key-stop point for any producer thinking about filming in Romania.”
