    Film France, the National Film Commission of France, the Embassy of France in India and the Consulate General of France in Pondicherry will meet producers from southern states on 6 and 7 April to formally invite them to shoot in France and give them necessary information on the opportunities of filming on location there.

    The France government would grant a special rebate of 20 per cent of the costs to any production unit spending at least one million Euros in France, Film France said in its release.

    “Our aim is to consolidate and thus sustain the interest of producers of feature films in Chennai and South India for our country while a new treaty on co-production of movies has been signed recently between India and France,” said Deputy director of Film France Franck Priot.

    He revealed that over 300 foreign filmmakers visit France to make feature films, TV serials and documentaries. France is known for its diverse locations and picturesque and spectacular landmarks.
