Who is this event for?
The core audience consists of the Austrian and international AV industry including buyers, sellers, producers, rights holders, authors, opinion leaders, distributors, funding institutions, film commissions, creative industry media as well as providers of technical services and new technologies (virtual reality, VFX, animations, etc). Entrepreneurs from other creative sectors (music, fashion, design, entertainment, media art) will also be served.
Austria is internationally renowned for world-class production houses, skilled crews, and attractive locations as well as its cutting edge VFX and post-production facilities and high-standard infrastructure. With an impressive increase of productions in recent years, the country in the very heart of Europe has proven to be a top destination for shooting films, series, docs, and other non-fiction formats. But this is just the beginning!
Today, the Austrian AV industry finds itself at an exciting turning point. By January 1st, 2023, a new incentive model will be introduced that substantially increases the competitiveness and attractiveness of Austria as a business partner for the international film and media sector and allows those working in the local industry to benefit from the sector’s enormous global growth. The model provides for an uncapped, non-repayable subsidy of up to 35 % of the expenses incurred in Austria for AV productions, 5 % of which is a bonus for green producing. What’s more, Vienna’s new film & TV studios “HQ7 Studios” will be up and running by Q1 2024 - further boosting Austria’s attractiveness for production companies from all over the world.
The global focus and the conference options make this event unique
CIMIx 2023 invites you to explore international insights, as well as opportunities and successful business cases. The network of ADVANTAGE AUSTRIA and its partners bring together Austrian and foreign companies and experts, which will make CIMIx a strong platform to boost the internationalization of the creative industries in general and especially the AV industry.
