The National Network of Film Offices
At EKOME we understand the importance of running a successful program of financial incentives in audiovisual production. But we also know that it takes more than financial tools to support and further mordernize the domestic audiovisual industry. Therefore, we are implementing a strategic plan that will help improve services provided across Greece while enhancing activity in various fields, that will also contribute significantly in attracting foreign productions in the country and support entrepreneurship and employment.
The existence of a Network of Offices dedicated to facilitating audiovisual productions, (hereinafter “Film Offices”) has a significant impact in the domestic audiovisual industry, as it bears the capacity to attract additional support and leverage in our national goal to highlight Greece as one the most attractive destinations for audiovisual productions in the world .
Our proposal for the creation of a National Network of Film Offices in 13 Regions and 2 major Municipalities (Athens and Thessaloniki) across Greece was approved and funded by the state budget in late 2018. To date we have already:
- Concluded all the technical studies and reports that provide the necessary guidelines and technical specifications for the implementation of the network
- Started working closely with Regions and Municipalities to conclude setting up the Offices
- Started promoting and marketing the network through various events and markets abroad.
