Croatian Audiovisual Industry Outlines Plans

By Goran Kovac
    Members of the Croatian audiovisual industry presented plans to the Croatian parliament at a 1 March 2011 meeting. Among the suggestions were a tax incentive programme and reviving national TV production.
    Hrvoje Hribar, director of the Croatian Audiovisual Centre HAVC (www.havc.hr), presented five strategic objectives of the Programme: the introduction of incentives for service export, which would return major international commissions to our industry; implementation of laws; increasing public visibility of Croatian film; increasing attendance at Croatian cinemas; defining the status of the Croatian Cinematheque; and supporting the digitalisation of movie theatres.
