Since a new film law took effect in January, Colombia has emerged as the go-to location for a growing number of international filmmakers.
Also helping lift production: the country has turned the page on the notorious drug violence of its past. According to the latest U.S. State Dept. travel warning, “security in Colombia has improved significantly in recent years.”
Per the new film law, dubbed Law 1556, foreign shoots of feature films and TV movies investing over $500,000 in Colombia can avail themselves of cash rebates of 40% on local qualified film spend and 20% cash rebates on lodging, catering and transportation expenses.
The law creates a $14 million film fund and complements the 2003 film law, which offered subsidies and tax savings of up to 41.23% to resident producers. The old law led to a surge in local production and resulted in improved crew competence and depth.
It also contributed to a growing shooting and production services infrastructure. »
