The Estonian Film Institute’s (EFI) freshest initiative - support for developing screenplays for TV mini-series - gave its first round of support to the suspenseful crime drama “The Deep” and the children’s series “The Secret Society of Souptown And Cucumber Mafia”.
Production support shall be allocated for the production of a full-length feature film (65 minutes or longer), short film, documentary film or animation film. The recipient of production support shall spend at least 50% of the EFI support allocated for his or her film project on economic activity in Estonia.
Production support can be applied for by a legal entity whose principal activity is the production of films and to whom the property rights of the authors of the audio-visual work are transferred or licensed. The applicant has to be entered in the Estonian Business Register before the payment is made.
