Producers shooting in the Czech Republic are celebrating a successful first year of the Film Industry Support Programme. The Czech Republic introduced the film production incentives program, which offers rebates of up to 20% of local production costs, in June 2010. Of the 41 projects that registered with the program, 22 applied for the rebate. 15 of those were international projects; one did not proceed to production. Producers received a combined total CZK 177,654,600 (roughly $9.3m) through the program in 2010. The average funding for the international projects which concluded production was CZK 151,478,700 (about $7.9m). Even before the end of the year, the eligible producers had received their rebates, even though some had wrapped production only a few weeks prior. Projects which received rebates through the program in 2010 included Borgia (Atlantique Production/EOS, Canal +, Etic Films), Lidice (Movie s.r.o., Magic Box, ČT, STV), Philibert (Mandarin Cinema, Okko Productions), Der Mann mit dem Fagott (ARD, ORF, MIA Film), Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol (Bad Robot, Paramount Pictures, Skydance Productions, Stillking Films), Odcházení (Buc-Film, Bontonfilm, ČT, Centrum r. Č.Skalice, Z. Bakala) and Rockstar (Shree Ashtavinayak Cine Vision, Punk Film) The Film Industry Support Programme has CZK 300m (about $15.7m) available to distribute in 2011. The Czech Ministry of Culture's Audiovisual Department oversees the program. More information is available at www.ppfp.cz or through the Czech Film Commission
