Nowhere else in Europe will you find such a large diversity of locations combined with a highly skilled workforce.

Film France also provides information about coproduction opportunities in France and assists foreign producer who want to apply for the TRIP (Tax Rebate for International Production).

TRIP (Tax rebate for international production)

How does the incentive work?

What is it?

The TRIP (Tax rebate for international production) supports foreign companies whose projects are completely or partly made in France. To be eligible, projects must include elements related to French culture, heritage, or territory. Eligibility is based on a Cultural Test, which assesses the relativity of the story, locations, characters, sources, landmarks, creators, crew and technical hubs.

For animated production, there is a dedicated Cultural Test, acknowledging the singularities of the genre (download the full guide).

The amount allocated comprises 30% (20% previously) of the film expenses incurred in France, and caps at € 30 million per project (€ 20 million previously). The TRIP is given to the French company managing the production in France on behalf of the foreign producer.
