Croatia may be a small country, but it has a remarkably vibrant film industry, with exceptional local talent and production companies that have an impressive record in domestic and international production. 

As Croatia’s national agency responsible for supporting film production in Croatia, the Croatian Audiovisual Centre (HAVC) has a dual role. We support the industry by funding projects and training, and by promoting Croatia as a location for international production. 

Filming in Croatia, a department within the HAVC, ensures that Croatia remains a film-friendly location for both local and visiting filmmakers. Filming in Croatia department helps navigate international filmmakers through practical production requirements, and support schemes available for international productions in Croatia. 

The Incentive Programme

Since 2012, Croatia offers a financial incentive for film and TV production. With the 25 % rebate (additional 5 % for filming in regions with below average development), skilled professional crews, and production costs among the lowest in Europe, there has been a steady increase in the number of international film productions being shot in Croatia.
