Funding in Czech Republic


Since its establishment in 2013, the Czech Film Fund’s annual budget for selective support has increased from 6 million to 14 million euro, and the funds for production incentives have risen to the current 58 million euro per year.

The Czech Film Fund was established on 1 January 2013, based on the new Act No. 496/2012 on Audiovisual Works and Support for Cinematography.

The Czech Film Fund supports all stages of film production, as well as promotion, distribution and other film-related areas. 14,5 million euro goes into this selective support every year. The Fund also administers production incentives for audio-visual projects made in the Czech Republic. The annual budget for this cash rebate is 32 million euro.

The Czech Film Center as a division of the Czech Film Fund promotes and markets Czech films and the local film industry worldwide. It collaborates with major international film festivals and co-production platforms and utilizes a global network of partners, seeking opportunities for creative exchange between Czech filmmakers and their international counterparts.

The Czech Film Commission as a division of the Czech Film Fund promotes the country with its film infrastructure as one of the world's top destinations for audiovisual production.
