AIPA: The Economic Importance of Audiovisual Industry and its Position in View of Covid-19
Measures to systemically reinforce the foundations for film and audiovisual production and systematically attract audiovisual projects are guaranteed to help create new jobs both in the audiovisual sector and the hospitality industry. In promoting film destinations, the focus could be on less developed regions.
To use the full potential of the audiovisual industry, it is time for a careful consideration of systemic regulation of the field. Ambitious countries are, first and foremost, boosting their public funds to pave the way for future development and stimulate private investment. The audiovisual sector should be recognised as a vital part of the economy, and integrated, where reasonable, into the activities of SPIRIT Slovenia and the country’s economic diplomacy.
Looking forward, it is essential to devise a cross-sector national strategy of audiovisual industry development with a focus on systematic human resource development, while revising the legislation in a way that foreign VOD service providers are required to invest part of their proceeds from the sales made in Slovenia in creating original content within the country.
Every euro invested in the audiovisual industry is a euro well-spent!
