Greece is becoming the Hollywood of Europe
Inspiring Stories: Joseph Samaan, President of Tanweer Group
Tanweer Group’s President, Joseph Samaan, is at the forefront of the development of Greece’s film and media industry, and one of the sectors most outspoken proponents.
Considered a “natural open air studio”, Greece is climbing the ranks as the location of choice for foreign film productions thanks – in part – to generous financial incentives, including one of the most competitive cash rebate systems in the world (40% refundable below the line). Greece offers beautiful landscapes, 300+ days of sunlight, highly qualified human capital, and a wide array of investment opportunities ranging from production studios to post-production facilities.
Disney, Amazon, and Netflix are just a few of the big names that have heeding the call, and Greece is eager to promote its culture, history, and beauty through the film industry.
