  • The participation of co-producers from other countries is permitted when limited to a minority quota with respect to the co-producers from Italy and the Baltic States.
  • The Italian and Baltic co-producers must each contribute no less than 20% of the development costs (including direct contributions and those deriving from other sources).

  • The grant application must be requested by the majority co-producer from the domestic institution in the country of fiscal residence. In the case of equal co-production quotas and when the rights to the creative development of the artistic material have been ceded to both co-producers, the application should be addressed to Italy’s Directorate General for Cinema and Audiovisual (DGCA) if the director is resident in Italy or when the writer of the screenplay is resident in Italy if the director has not yet been appointed by the co-producers.
  • Grant applications addressed to DGCA must be requested by production companies, including as associated producer, who:
    • are legally headquartered or have an operations unit in the European Economic Area;
    • have fiscal residency in Italy at the moment of disbursement of the grant;
    • do not qualify as non-European producers;
    • do qualify as independent producers;
