THE producer of the films Table No 21 and 3G that were shot in Fiji, Vikram Rajani, has promised to return for another film production in the next couple of months.
And yesterday, government presented two cheques as tax rebates for the flicks.
Table No 21 earned a cheque of $1,304,441.97 while 3G was presented with a cheque of $1,274,539.32.
Mr Rajani described the shoot in Fiji last year as smooth.
"Everything went on as we planned right from the start," Mr Rajani said.
Attorney-General Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum said new changes were made by the government to offer 47 per cent rebate for movies produced in Fiji.
He said the rebate process for the two movies was very rigorous where a number of audit checks were carried out by FRCA.
"This was to certify that the production company has met all the requirements," Mr Sayed-Khaiyum said.
He said Fiji Film also certified that Next Gen Film (Fiji) Limited, the company behind the productions, met the requirements of employing local artists and students from FNU.
FRCA CEO Jitoko Tikolevu said they wanted to ensure that any fund coming in to Fiji go through a diligent audit process.
Film Fiji acting chair Shaenaz Voss said 3G depicted Fiji in a very attractive manner as a tourist destination.
'We know the potential is there and the process especially the tax rebate offered by government is obviously working," she said.
