Knowledge, passion and drive. With these values, the BLS intends to support and promote high-quality film productions. You can find out more about our individual services here:
Location and Personnel Scouting
South Tyrol has a lot of unique locations and settings to offer. But the knack of it all is finding the most suitable ones. Quickly and without a lot of effort and expense. For that, we have our two online instruments: the Location Database and the Industry Directory, both of which provide keyword research information about appropriate locations and the desired infrastructure. The only pre-requisite is an Internet connection. And if your online search only gets you so far, simply ask us for more information. We would be happy to help you in looking for and selecting specific locations and extraordinary personnel needs.
Bureaucracy can be a pain. But if you can ask for assistance from someone who knows the ropes, everything is much easier. We can help you as much as you like in obtaining shooting permits. Your production makes the decisions as to how much assistance you would like to take advantage of. You can contact the responsible authorities yourself directly and we can help you in difficult or complicated situations. Or possibility number two, the BLS can provide you with all the necessary forms and information. And if you so wish, we can take care of the whole process for you, of course in close cooperation with you.
Individual Location and Production Support
Upon request and with concrete plans to shoot in South Tyrol, we can gladly organize and provide your team with a location scout for up to three full days. For projects which do not receive funding from BLS, particularly in the case of low-budget projects, we can help you in finding further special concessions.
We would also be happy to assist you in finding inexpensive production offices or other premises necessary for the shoot.
You can even ask us for help in finding and negotiating conditions for appropriate accommodations.
Legislation & Taxes
When in Rome, do as the Romans do - the old saying is still valid, especially when it comes to legislation and taxes. The film department of the BLS can provide important information about basic legal and tax regulations for film productions in Italy. And if necessary or desired, we can put you into contact with the appropriate specialist.
Are you looking for contacts at the local authorities or to decision makers for your production? We’d be glad to help you.
