The Film Office-Central Macedonia is a newly established regional film office, based in Thessaloniki, the capital of Central Macedonia, in Northern Greece. It is the first regional film office to be launched as a public institution in Greece and it was founded on the initiative of the Regional Governor of Central Macedonia Mr Apostolos Tzitzikostas, who leads the Region’s effort to become a competitive filming destination.
The Film Office-Central Macedonia runs as a regional public service, with the scope to successfully facilitate audiovisual productions of all types, which are shot in the region, while enhancing extroversion and investments in film tourism.
The Film Office operates as a free service for all audiovisual professionals who shoot their projects in Central Macedonia. The Film Office acts as a liaison to supply information about filming requests, tax incentives, location scouting etc and to provide assistance for a successful collaboration with local partners (production companies and crews, quality service providers and technical facilities etc).
The Film Office-Central Macedonia supports Greek as well as foreign production of all types and budgets in order to highlight Central Macedonia as an ideal destination for filming and, at the same time, to promote local professionals, directly or indirectly linked to the audiovisual sector.
