The Argentina wildlife and habitats are a precious and irreplaceable film set. From jungles to glaciers, with the Andes, grassland, multicolored deserts and salt-flats in between, Argentina offers reverse seasons from the Northern Hemisphere and up to 14 hours of sunlight in January. Hundreds of commercials are shot in Buenos Aires, Argentina every year. About a fourth of these are international productions – products of agencies that choose to shoot in Buenos Aires for its moderate prices and versatility, which allows it to double for lots of different locations or simply pose as a generic metropolis.
At present there are no tax incentives for foreign commercials or films shooting in Argentina. However, foreign companies are not charged the 21% national tax on production services. Also regarding accommodation, foreign companies are not charged the 17% national tax on rooms.
Argentinians Armando Bo and Nicolas Giacobone along with Mexican Director Alejandro González Iñárritu and Alexander Dinelaris Jr. took home’ Best Original Screenplay’ at this Years 87th Academy Awards.
