  Dozen projects filming in Paris now!
Among the projects currently shooting in Paris is the TRIPPED feature The Five Misfortunes of Francois Jane


The streets of Paris are the setting of this Australo- American feature film, the first to have benefited from the new TRIP (tax rebate for international production) regulation in favor of under 2 million euro budgets.
This first feature directed by Australian photographer Patrick Pearse, author of art films and fashion documentaries tells the story of a love disenchantment and Parisian perambulations of a young idealist.
Shooting will end February 27th. The Paris murders earlier this year have had fortunately no effect on filming on locations with all permits have been issued - the police department of the city and Paris Film working hand in hand with the production to ensure maximum security.
Clandestine Films is the production servicing company behind the filming in Paris. 70% of the budget is to be spent in France, a rare prowess for such an independent film.
Film France welcomes this project that could not have qualified prior to the TRIP latest changes, when minimum spend was strictly 1 million euros. Now it's either one million OR 50% of the budget that will need to be spent in France.
Clandestine Films, also a French executive production company, is now positioning itself as an experienced low budget movie production services company (see our production services database ).

  Bollywood in Corsica
Stars from Mumbai celebrate the end of the 16-day-film-shoot of TAMASHA.


Directed by Imtiaz Ali, starring Ranbir Kapoor & Deepika Padukone, TAMASHA is the first Indian film to get the TRIP and spends more that 1M€ on eligible expenses in France. Corsica Film Office assisted the production services company "ifilmfrance" to organize the shoot in Corsica.

The film shot in the picturesque towns of Bastia, Bonifacio and Calvi and one dance scene was filmed on a town square with more than 570 local extras! Composer A.R. Rahman wrote songs that mixed the polyphonic & traditional music of Corsica with Indian film music.

Film France is looking forward to seeing the result on the big screen!

Synopsis:

A Young Indian girl finds herself in big trouble when she loses her bag full of possessions in the French island of Corsica. No one but this young backpacker from the same country understands her position. He helps her, he is kind to her. They have to stick together till she receives her new passport and some money. However like all good times this has to come to an end too eventually. She says goodbye and leaves Corsica behind but his memory never quite escapes her... Four years on she tries to find him. He's not the same person anymore. What will happen remains to be seen.
