Kvarner Film Commission
The Kvarner Film Commission is a regional film office established in 2016 in the framework of the public institution Art-kino, with the support and incentives provided by the City of Rijeka, the Primorje and Gorski Kotar County and the Croatian Audiovisual Centre.
The Kvarner Film Commission provides administrative, logistical and professional assistance to domestic and foreign audio-visual productions. The vision of the Kvarner Film Commission is to make the City of Rijeka and the Primorje and Gorski Kotar County attractive and recognizable film locations.
Our services comprise an easy access to the abundant data basis of film locations on the territory of the city of Rijeka and Primorje and Gorski Kotar County, networks of local filmmakers, and private and business entities active in the region as well as the representatives of the management. In addition to that our web site www.kvarner-film.org provides an access to an abundant data basis of film locations this is a logical continuation of our intentions to make the city of Rijeka and Primorje and Gorski Kotar County attractive and recognizable film destinations.
Development of film industry is directly linked to the tradition of film art in Rijeka but it largely depends on the interest of production companies interested in shooting in the region. In that way, young professionals and young people, who maybe see their future in the audiovisual industry, have the opportunity to gain necessary experience on film sets. The Kvarner Film Commission promotes locations with shooting potential with an intention to make the process easier for all interested filmmakers at the same time promoting the work of domestic professionals on sets and opening space for young people to learn and work.
We have to highlight that the city of Rijeka currently has a remarkable film production and art scene. Since the foundation of a public institution Art-kino the development of film industry has become very visible over the past decade. In that context, the establishment of the Kvarner Film Commission stands as a logical continuation of all efforts done so far. To illustrate, the Agreement on support of the local film production was signed by the City of Rijeka and the Croatian Audiovisual Centre to co-fund more than 20 films. All those steps are an incentive for the further development of film industry.
