FILM INDUSTRY SUPPORT AUSTRIA (FISA)
“Film Industry Support Austria“ (FISA) is a film fund of the Federal Ministry of Science, Research and Economy designed to support the production of cinema films with an annual budget of 7.5 Million Euro. Funding is granted for Austrian productions, Austrian-international co-productions as well as international productions obliged to work with an Austrian service production company.
The non-repayable grant amounts to a maximum of 25% of the eligible Austrian production expenditures, allocated on a “first come, first served” basis.
Basic requirements for international productions with an Austrian service production company are a minimum shoot of five days in Austria and total production costs of at least 8 Million Euro (feature films) with a minimum of 1 Million Euro spent in Austria. To qualify, the production has to pass a “Cultural Test”.
