More money to film production than producers demanded

The rest of the extra funds for the film industry will go to, among other things, the digitalization of small countryside cinemas and films for children.

In the previous proposal there was no extra money allocated to support domestically produced films, despite earlier suggestions by Wallin.

The over 10 million euros extra to directly benefit cultural, youth work and sports activities were freed up from the National Lottery profits. In the earlier proposal much of that money was reserved to partly cover rental expenses, paying off loans of cultural bodies and renovations (including the renovation of the National Theatre).

Funds to cover those real estate expenses will now have to be found elsewhere.

The Parliament will likely vote on the proposal on Friday.
