With an annual production of about 34 features, 171 short films and some 75 documentaries, independent film production in Belgium is alive and kicking. Having gone through a thorough professionalization process over the past couple of years, animation has now become an integral part of the industry as well.
As financial resources have always been limited due to the modest size of the national market, Belgian professionals have developed considerable knowhow in the area of international co-production.
In Belgium, there is a variety of sources of finance for audiovisual projects.
Belgian producers have access to the main European sources of financing and the tax benefits of the tax shelter.
There are several film commissions to help you for locations, logistics and authorizations to film.
In the area of technology, Belgium has developed a high profile in technology solutions.
