Tax Rebate for International Productions (TRIP)

The TRIP is selectively granted by the CNC – French National Center for Cinema, TV and the moving image – for projects that are made in France.

The TRIP amounts up to 30% (or 40%, if the French VFX expenses are more than €2M) of the qualifying expenditures incurred in France, and can total a maximum of €30 million per project.

To be eligible projects must include elements related to the French or European culture, heritage, and territory, accordingly to a cultural test specific to each genre (live action or animation).

The tax rebate can be granted to projects that incur €250,000 or 50% of their world budgets in French expenditures and, for a live action work, have at least 5 days of shooting in France. It can total a maximum of €30 million by project.
