The Limburg Film Office is the central point of contact for film and media makers who work or want to work in Limburg. The Limburg Film Office supervises and supports creators through the Limburg Film Commission and is the only region in the Netherlands to offer additional financing opportunities for your production through the Limburg Film Fund. We connect you and your production with the right people, agencies and facilities and actively work with you to find financing opportunities within our region, in the Netherlands and just across the border in Belgium, Germany and Luxembourg. Limburg lies in the heart of the golden Netherlands – Belgium – Germany triangle, and the possibilities in this border region are literally boundless.

The Limburg Film Office works closely with the Netherlands Film Commission and is proud to be a member of the European Film Commission Network (EUFCN).

About Limburg Film Office

The Limburg Film Office aims to stimulate the film climate in Limburg and surrounding border regions. This is achieved by utilizing the Limburg Film Fund and Limburg Film Commission in a unique way. On the one hand, this provides a financial incentive for productions and producers who are connected to the region. On the other hand, productions and producers are supported in making productions in Limburg.

 

Limburg Film Fund

 

The Limburg Film Fund is the only regional film fund in the Netherlands. Relatively modest resources are used to maximize the impact for the region, both culturally and economically. The Limburg Film Fund wants to provide physical, mental and financial space for experiment and the development of productions and their creators. This central principle has been translated to concrete financing schemes in which there is space for experimentation and innovation, development and realization.

 

Limburg Film Commission

 

The Limburg Film Commission forms the official link between the regional creative media industry and national and international production companies. Its mission is to bring national and international audio-visual productions to Limburg by highlighting the favourable conditions for production. In addition, it wants to stimulate its own regional film in every possible way. The Limburg Film Commissioner also functions as promoter of the regional film fund, which it brings to the attention of producers and creators in its own region and beyond. It thus seeks to attract more productions and producers to this region, creates more creative and economic activity and creates cross-pollinations, and the entire region benefits from this.

THE FOUNDATION

Limburg Film Office is a non-profit organization that was founded in March 2020. The foundation is financed by the Province of Limburg, the Netherlands. For specific projects and funding regulations there is a cooperation with other partners and funds.

The board of the foundation is formed by a managing director, which is appointed by the Supervisory board. The Supervisory board consists of at least three members. An External Film Advisory Committee (Advisory Board Film) is used to make decisions regarding applications within the Limburg Film Fund.

Limburg Film Office is proud member of the European Film Commission Network (EUFCN) and part of the alliance Film in Limburg.

5 REASONS TO SHOOT YOUR NEXT PRODUCTION IN LIMBURG

1. LIMBURG IS CENTRALLY LOCATED IN EUROPE

Limburg can easily be reached by airplane and car. The centre (southern Limburg) of this international Belgium-Germany-the Netherlands region is just 1 hour from Düsseldorf and Cologne, 2 hours from Amsterdam and Brussels, and 4 hours from Paris. With more than 10 international airports in and around Limburg and a good infrastructure by car and train Limburg is the place to be.

2. GREAT FUNDING OPTIONS

Limburg is the best place to create international co-productions in Europe. Besides our own Limburg Film Fund there are good possibilities to get funding in the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany and Luxembourg as well. The Limburg Film Fund can be combined with other funding possibilities.

3. RENOWNED FACILITIES, CREW AND KNOWLEDGE

A creative and dynamic European hub with an international infrastructure of the best professionals and production facilities of the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany and Luxembourg.

4. STUNNING LOCATIONS

Limburg and its direct surroundings have the most stunning and unique film locations. We are the only province in the Netherlands with hills and mountains, have lots of industrial terrains, historical and contemporary centers, modern- and street-art and the most high tech architecture.

5. INTERNATIONAL FOCUS

The Netherlands, and especially Limburg, has a natural international scope. Limburg is one of the Netherlands’ 12 provinces. Situated between Belgium and Germany, the region is dominated by borders. Limburg has 351 km of borders with other countries and is connected to the rest of the Netherlands by just 113 km. It’s not surprising that Limburgians have traditionally looked further than her borders and have an open attitude towards international coproduction. Regarding financing Limburg offers you not only the national funding and financing options, but we also have our own Limburg Film Fund. Located in the centre of the crossborder-region (Netherlands, Belgium, Germany) Limburg is also the most natural location to co-produce with production companies from for example Liege, Cologne, Düsseldorf, Luxembourg and Brussels.
