*Important* These rates listed are for reference purposes only, to give you some idea of what you should be expecting when budgeting a film in Cyprus. However, you can negotiate rates based on the type of film you wish to produce and the time of year also affects the prices slightly as Cyprus although having 340 days of sunshine per year typically gets busier during the period from April to October.

The rates for TVC are based on a five-day workweek. Lower rates are for factual shows and higher rates for dramas. Rates for feature films are based on a six-day workweek. Lower rates for budgets less than €1M and higher rates for budgets between €1M – €3M.
