YEREVAN (Armenpress) — Several Netflix films and televisions series will be filmed in Armenia.
Member of Parliament Sisak Gabrielyan from the Civil Contract Party credited the latest amendments made to the law on film for the deal.
He said that a memorandum of cooperation has been signed with German actor and producer Til Schweiger’s agent.
“As expected, the latest amendments made to the law on film have made Armenia attractive for filmmaking. Today at the Ministry of Education, Science, Culture and Sport we signed a memorandum of cooperation with German actor, film producer Til Schweiger’s agent. A total of three films, ‘Underdog,’ ‘Dead by Dawn,’ and ‘Collapse’ (8-part Netflix film), will be filmed in Armenia. Filming is planned to start in the beginning of the year. This will be the first application of the new law. As a reminder, in case of maintaining the regulations, the state will return to the filmmakers between ten to forty percent of the invested money. In the coming days the Ministry of Education, Science, Culture and Sport will publish the list of the respective products and services, as well as the terms and regulations of use. According to experts, our country is very convenient for filmmaking in terms of its location. Throughout the year, almost at any given time you can have snow-capped mountains and asphalt melting heat at the same time, and beautiful modern buildings, streets, and abandoned villages and factories,” Gabrielyan said on social media.
