Alien Films Entertainment was one of the first Romanian established production companies that met the requirements stated by the scheme and brought successful projects on the Romanian film market, benefiting from this support. The production company created long term relationship with the partners abroad based on trust and quality services.

Alien Films Entertainment has been helping the ease of the entire process by providing all the administration and legal framework for the production, assuring the correct identification of the amount of cash rebate and covering all administration activities related to the cash rebate.

This year, Alien Films Entertainment has already filmed 2 projects under the cash rebate scheme and is in preparation with the 3rd one, being the first company in Romania to have actually received the money for the first one, waiting for the payment on the 2nd one.

Case study details:

  • Application submitted on 4th March 2019
  • Applicant’s Certificate issued on 22nd March 2019
  • Audit report and Payment request submitted on 5th July 2019
  • Payment request approved on 19th July 2019
  • Payment of the cash rebate received on 1st October 2019

Alien Films Entertainment has a very serious foreign partner for cash flow-ing the cash rebate for all the projects serviced or co-produced by Alien Films Entertainment in Romania.

“Thanks to its beautiful landscapes, experienced crew and high standard equipment and also due to its attractive production costs, Romania is one of the favourite locations chosen by foreign directors and producers. The exquisite setups are assured by Romania’s geographic location in Europe, in the north of the Balkan Peninsula and on the western shores of the Black Sea.  The only thing missing to encourage investors to come to Romania was a state aid support. Hopefully after successful projects many others will be encouraged to participate and produce valuable projects on our market.  “ – Iuliana Tarnovetchi – Managing Director and Founder Alien Films Entertainment.
