The Estonian film commission will be
officially rolled out during this year's Cannes film market under the brand FilmEstonia.eu.
FilmEstonia.eu plans to market Estonia as an
undiscovered European location to foreign producers, focusing on low to mid-budget
film and TV productions from Europe, Russia and Asia. Estonia will be positioned
as a highly efficient, low-cost and high-tech European destination with
undiscovered locations and four seasons.
FilmEstonia.eu will provide location scouting
services, offer producers and directors free scouting trips to the country,
channel contacs and facilitate the few official procedures necessary. A key
goal of FilmEstonia.eu is the introduction of local incentive funding beginning
The launch coincides with the celebration of
the 100th jubilee of Estonian cinema in 2012. The FilmEstonia.eu pavillion will
be located in the Pantiero section of the Cannes film market.
