The Antwerp Film Bonus is a financial incentive attributed by the city of Antwerp to productions with a great international appeal, which are entirely or partly set in Antwerp and make use of local crew and facilities.
The Antwerp Film Bonus is designed to be complementary to the other existing financing tools in Flanders. Therefore, only productions that have already been supported by one of the regional funds (VAF, Screen Flanders, …) can apply for funding.
Productions are evaluated on their local economic return (minimum of 10 exterior shooting days, number of nights in the city, local crew and suppliers, …), which is measured through a point system.
With a budget of 50,000 euros the city aims to support a maximum of two productions each year.
