This BA (Hons) Programme was mounted in collaboration with Board of Investment (BOI) and Mauritius Film Development Cooperation (MFDC) based on a demand from the Industry. The Government of Mauritius through BOI wants to promote the Film Industry through various incentives including the Film Rebate Scheme to make Mauritius more attractive to international film makers. Quoting the Scheme page info from MFDC website:
As per the scheme, Government will contribute 30 per cent of the Qualified Production Expenditures (QPEs) incurred in Mauritius by a film producer with respect to the shooting of a film. The QPEs will include transport, accommodation, manpower, catering and the hiring of equipment and premises in Mauritius the QPEs will, however, be exclusive of sponsorship.The scheme is being administered by the Board of Investment (BOI)
