The cost

By choosing us, you’re guaranteed to slash the price of your film production in Hungary. Our wages are low, hotels and services are affordable, and there are good change rates from pounds, euros and dollars to the Hungarian Forint. On average, Filmreaktor’s production costs are 30-35% below that of Germany and the UK and 25-35 per cent less than the Czech Republic. Based on ‘local spend’, both cinema and TV productions shot with Filmreaktor in Hungary are eligible for a 20% tax rebate. Designed to maintain Hungary’s appeal for high profile productions, the scheme is one of the most generous in Europe; forming part of the film support programme approved by the European Commission in 2008. The incentive is available through local businesses, and we’re here to help.
