Launched in May 2014, the Production Incentive is based on a system of cash rebates. The assessment of the scheme’s first 15 months seems promising, according to the CEO of the Netherlands Film Fund, Doreen Boonekamp: “At the start of the new support scheme, in 2014, international projects mostly decided on post-production in the Netherlands. Now we are seeing a clear increase in other key crew personnel from the Netherlands, such as composers, production designers and sound technicians, and many more international co-productions are choosing to shoot in the country.”
