Slovak Film Commission

Slovak Film Commission

The adjustments to the Audiovisual Industry Support Program of the Slovak Audiovisual Fund have led to the establishment of the Slovak Film Commission (SFC) as a new organizational unit of the Fund. With this step Slovakia has gained another impetus to become a more attractive and accessible partner for foreign film productions or domestic investors.

The main tasks of the SFC include:

SFC intends to achieve these goals through active presentation in Slovakia and on international film markets, personal meetings and specialized events. SFC created and continuously updates a public database on film infrastructure in the Slovak Republic, launched a website as well as printed materials with information on the Slovak audiovisual environment, administers the provision of expert advice and maintains active cooperation with foreign film commissions and professional audiovisual organizations. SFC became a member of the European Film Commissions Network (EUFCN) and Association of Film Commissioners International (AFCI).

Primary focus of SFC is to attract producers of feature, documentary and animated audiovisual works to Slovakia and its regions and to progressively streamline the benefits of audiovisual production in Slovak regions for both foreign and domestic producers and investors. The secondary objective is to support tourism in individual regions.

The Slovak Film Commission is your first contact for shooting in Slovakia.

Connecting professionals and providing expert guidance, the Slovak Film Commission is here for anyone seeking to create audiovisual content in Slovakia, whether it be a feature, a documentary, animation, TV series or a commercial.
