Iceland’s sole dedicated film and television financing boutique Isold Film & TV Financing has become the first company to cash-flow both the country’s film and TV tax incentive and Vat refund.
Reykjavik-based producer-director Thoromar Jonsson founded Isold earlier this year to capitalise on a sought-after location that has hosted shoots for HBO smash Game Of Thrones [pictured], Captain America: Civil War and upcoming Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, among others.
Former Studio Babelsberg managing director Thierry Potok serves as chairman, while former Screen International editor-in-chief Colin Brown is president; La-based strategy and media consultant Francis DellaVecchia is head of operations, and Mark Rabinowitz serves as head of acquisitions.
Effective immediately, Isold offers to cash-flow the 25% Icelandic tax incentive as well as the 24% Vat refund. Its services extend to producers of film and TV shows that want to take advantage of Iceland
