The Panama Film Commission is a division under the Ministry of Commerce and Industry, that provides Incentives for the Film Industry. Panama has an interesting range of incentives, available to companies and independent professionals interested in carrying out projects in the country.
Our main incentive is the economic return of 25% of the total of goods and services purchased from local suppliers in Panama when investing more than $500,000. We also offer Tax exoneration on all equipment imported for use in film productions.
We also offer:
A One Stop Shop for film permits and production needs. • A directory of providers of equipment and services related to the film industry (location scouting, makeup, catering, editing, etc.). • The facilitation of visas and work permits, before coming to Panama. • Special incentives for companies that want to open permanent film facilities in Panama.
Panama can simulate major cities of the world, closer to you and with lower costs.
