From the Hollywood Reporter:
It’s not so much that the production environment in Canada is rock solid, as rival locales in the U.S. and Europe look shaky as governments end or trim tax credits and other lucrative subsidies to woo Hollywood to their backyards.
And from the Spectator:
Since 43 states have film subsidy programs, “no state can ‘win’ the film subsidy war.”
In my post about the legality of international studies many had diverted the debate into one about nationalism and xenophobia. If you have read my blog, you’ll know that I have railed against both state and international film subsidies for the vfx industy. It artificializes the price of vfx.
In the subsidy war, the last person standing is the biggest loser.
