FILMING IN ESTONIA HAS MANY BENEFITS STARTING FROM BREATHTAKING LOCATIONS TO EXPERIENCED CREW MEMBERS AND SUPPORTING INCENTIVES!

 

LOCATIONS

Estonia is located in Northern Eastern Europe and has a land border with Russia and Latvia and sea border with Finland and Sweden. The local currency is Euro and we belong to the European Union and North Atlantic Treaty Organisation (NATO).

We have a variety of shooting locations to offer – starting with spectacular architecture ranging from medieval old town to derelict industrial environments. Old manors, pristine forests and bogs, modern buildings and historical streets are only a small part of what Estonia has to offer. And all of these can be found just a short drive away.

Estonia’s locations are present in the films we have been involved with. More wild and abandoned environments can be seen in our first feature film “The Sleeping Beast”. While seeking for something more classic, elegant or historical “Maria’s Paradise” and “Helene” are great examples. If interested in what our production designers can do when building sets, short film “Bad hair” is the one that’s fully shot in a built-in pavilion. Please write to us to request more tailor made options.

INCENTIVES

Main support for producing in Estonia comes from Estonian Film Institute and Cultural Endowment of Estonia.

There are three cash rebate incentives for international projects in Estonia – Film Estonia Cash-Rebate, Tartu Film Fund and Viru Film Fund. 

FilmEstonia cash-rebate refunds up to 30 percent of local production costs depending on the degree of involvement of local professionals or spend in Estonia. 

The other two are regional funds that support shooting in specific locations.

Tartu Film Fund applies for costs made in the Tartu region, South-Estonia. Support for one project varies from 10-20% of eligible costs made in the Tartu area per project.

Viru Film Fund is intended to support shooting in Eastern Estonia, Ida-Virumaa. It applies to up to 40% of the costs made while shooting films, TV series or music videos in Ida-Viru county. 

We in Stellar Film are experienced partners of all three cash-rebate schemes.
