Government prepares answer to “huge demand” to film in Portugal

The government is preparing “a solution” to meet the “huge demand” for Portugal as a filming destination because it has exhausted this year’s budget for tax incentives for foreign productions. A source from the Cinema and Audiovisual Institute says that this year there were 43 applications for tax incentives for filming in Portugal under the Fund to Support Tourism and Cinema, exceeding the maximum ceiling of €12 million budgeted for 2022.
