FILM IN SERBIA AT THE AFCI LOCATIONS TRADE SHOW 2009
16.04.2009.

For the first time ever, from April 16th to 18th, delegation of Serbian film producers and suppliers, supported by the USAID Serbia Competitiveness Project and SIEPA, will be participating at the AFCI (Association of Film Commissions International) Film Locations Trade Show in Santa Monica, in the attempt to promote Serbia as excellent destination for foreign film productions and bring some large investments into the industry which is known for its ability to boost the entire country’s economy.

For Serbia, this is not just another trade show. The delegation has a carefully planned schedule and prescheduled meetings with leading production companies. This is one time Serbia pulled all of its resources together for a success which will hopefully lead to much desired investments in the time of the global economic crisis. Serbian delegation includes production companies Work in Progress, Gargantua Films, Dream Company, Red Production, Cyber Entertainment, the only film lab Cinelabs Belgrade, post-production company Cinebox and studios for visual effects Crater and Digitalkraft. The support to the Serbian delegation was generously provided by highly visible and famous in Hollywood, HRH Princess of Serbia, Catherine Oxenberg, as well as Dan Tana. Thus, on Friday, April 17th, Serbia will host a reception for the people from the industry in popular Dan Tana’s Restaurant in Santa Monica. The guest list includes Universal, Warner Bros, the Walt Disney Company, Miramax, Paramount, MTV, HBO, NBC, and prominent Serbian film professionals working in Hollywood.

The market gathers 420 exhibitors from around 35 countries and for the first time Serbia will be promoting its diverse and dramatic film locations, remarkable depth of creative talent including world famous set building and costume design skills, exceptionally creative and skilled visual effects designers and the fact that cost-wise it is significantly more competitive than any of its rivals (35% less than Los Angeles and 15-30% less than other countries in the region).
