LITHUANIA AT EUROPEAN FILM MARKET

This year Lithuania celebrates a decade at EFM and greets its visitors with a slogan Challenge Accepted! The main message focuses on benefits of shooting in Lithuania and a successful tax incentives scheme. In 2019 Lithuania extended the scheme for another five years and increased the incentive up to 30%. It has already attracted such industry giants as HBO and Netflix. The award-winning miniseries “Chernobyl” has also contributed to promoting Lithuania as a great shooting location.
