Location Development

Conscious territorial development

IDM Film Fund & Commission is committed to the development of the local film industry to make sure it can meet the needs of the national and international audio-visual sector.

Apart from funding for film and TV productions, our Location Development Department also offers local filmmakers a variety of training and development opportunities, making them fit to work on top-quality projects in South Tyrol.

In addition to this, we regularly organize sector-based events to facilitate networking between the local film industry and the national and international ones, with a particular focus on the Italian, German, Austrian, and Swiss film industries.



About 70 prominent figures from the film and television industry meet each year at INCONTRI in South Tyrol for a transnational dialogue. Since 2011, this Film Conference, organised by IDM, has been building bridges between Germany, Italy, Austria, and Switzerland.
