Altogether 62 film projects benefited from €36m in financing from the Luxembourg Film Fund in 2016, according to a press release published on Tuesday.
Film Fund director Guy Daleiden and fund selection committee president Jean-Louis Scheffen explained that of that number, 32 projects received a grant for writing and/or development (€1.3m) and 30 projects (including one virtual reality) received production grants (€34.7m).
Promotional grants distributed totalled €152,361, while subsidies amounted to €133,224.
Elsewhere, the pair announced that in the coming months video on demand platform vod.lu plans to roll out a subscription system, similar to that offered by Netflix.
