An attractive incentive programme has sharpened focus on the need for further investment in facilities.
Italy is building on its reputation as a world-class filming destination by refurbishing and expanding Cinecitta Studios.
Japan is yet to establish itself as a major international filming location with appeal beyond East Asia, and rarely hosts footloose high-budget international productions for more than a few days. The country has no formal filming incentive programme and is regarded as an expensive place to shoot.
Lithuania is slowly growing its production industry and the number of international footloose productions it attracts.
The island republic’s water tanks and financial incentives are the biggest draws for international production shoots that have recently included Das Boot and American Assassin.
