Next to the financing and production of feature films, documentaries, animated movies, Belga is also actively financing TV series and made-for-TV films. Recent examples include:
Over Water is a series by Flemish national broadcaster één and produced by Panenka, a tv production company that has been producing television programs since2014. It tells the story of John Beckers, who is given an ultimate chance by his wife and two kids to get his life back on track and regain their trust. The total budget for season I and II reaches 10,1-M€. Belga Films Fund, via its Tax Shelter investors brought more than 2,2 million to the two series.The first season will be broadcast on één in Q4 2018.
De Dag is a series by Flemish broadcaster VIER and tells the story of a meticulously-prepared hostage-taking in a bank office in a small Flemish town. Broadcast is planned for Q2 2018.
Two made-for-TV films were completed in 2017. Le Viol, a 2-M€ TV film, was screened on French national TV in Q3 last year. The most assassinated woman in the world, produced by Netflix and shot exclusively in Belgium, was financed by Belga Films Fund’s Tax Shelter. The project, produced in Belgium by Fontana and supported by Wallimage, will hit the platform later this year.
For these projects, Belga Films Fund provided attractive financing via its in-house Tax Shelter fund and accompanied the production process via its production arm, Belga Productions.
