The Cyprus Film Scheme (the “Scheme”) which was drafted in accordance with European regulations, the objective of which is to promote the European culture and to provide investment aid for small and middle-sized enterprises (the “SMEs”), was approved in September 2017 as a means for promoting and advancing the film industry in Cyprus.
Cyprus, also known as the “Jewel of the Mediterranean”, is an ideal destination for film producers due to its scenery, tradition, history and architecture.
The combination of turquoise waters and sandy beaches, the snowy mountains in the winter, the historic monuments and graphic villages and the island’s traditional cuisine make it a perfect place for producers who are either interested in film production or documentaries.
