Shoot&Coproduce. Catalonia, a country for film is a snapshot of the Catalan audiovisual ecosystem in 2018. Starting with an overview of productions that span from box office hits to smaller, auteur driven productions, it moves on to introduce the different ways in which a project can access funds in the region. It also provides up-to-date information on the industry. Finally, it offers a comprehensive directory of companies willing to take part in international productions, be it as coproducers or by providing local production services. Presenting Catalan cinematography is no easy task. A vibrant production hub in the south of Europe, the region is home to a wide variety of companies and filmmakers that visit all formats and genres in ways that defy a single definition but which share one common trend: the ability to reach universal audiences in festivals and cinemas around the world. Streaming platforms and major broadcasters team up with independent companies to produce high quality crowd-pleasers, with renowned directors and cast that result in Box Office and festival successes. Alongside these more commercially driven productions, what has been labelled as the Catalan new wave encompasses a new generation of directors – mostly women – that have developed their own authorial language to approach their particular outlook on commonplace, intimate stories or to explore with the hybridization of genres to address their concerns. Emerging talents make their way into the industry hand-in-hand with experienced producers that venture into short film production or finish up school projects with a potential to reach the market. The boom in high-end TV production has also had an effect on Catalonia, with a continued growth and continued high levels of production investment across the region. National and international companies benefit from the wide array of locations and available studios to produce new shows for global audiences, while animation and documentaries thrive and benefit from international coproduction agreements. We hope that you will enjoy this publication as an introduction to the wealth of the Catalan audiovisual industry and look forward to helping you find out more.

In the following pages you can see a sample of these latest trends that make Catalonia one of the most vibrant regional film industries.

Catalonia, a country for film

This incentive is capped at 3 million euros, which means the maximum deduction base is 15 million Euros. The current applicable legislation is Article 36.2 Law 27/2014 dated the 27th of November, on Corporation Tax. Rebates for investments in film and audiovisual series productions and live performances and music shows. There may be changes in the legislation which regulates this incentive. It is advised to take any accounting, legal or investment decisions upon further consultation with legal advisors that can assess your production in deeper detail.

B . COPRODUCTIONS Coproductions with Catalonia are governed by Spain’s international treaties or, by default, by the general rules established in the Spanish Film Act Regulations. As such, all coproductions approved by ICEC (Catalan Institute for Cultural Companies) or ICAA (Spanish Film Institute) are considered national productions, thus, the Catalan partner in the coproduction can access the same sources of funds as a purely national project to cover its proportional share of the production. Although some of the treaties may have some more specific requirements, the following are common to all coproductions: Coproduction Requirements

Proportional contributions Creative / author minority / majority coproductions (min. 20%/ max 80% bilateral – min. 10%/ max 70% multilateral financial coproductions (10% to 25%)

Television fund (fiction and documentary) a. Fiction made-for-television productions (movies, mini-series and series) can apply for production funding. TV Movies and mini-series, intended mostly for the local market, are required to have secured broadcasting in Catalonia, whereas funding for TV Series encourages international coproductions. b. TV Documentaries, aimed at the national market, require the participation of a TV broadcaster that operates in the whole of Catalonia.

Assessment based on artistic and industrial criteria. Short films fund Open to fiction, documentary, animation and experimental shorts as well as international coproductions.
