Film tax breaks are not much different than "normal" tax breaks and
since you understand them you already understand film tax incentives.
Simply; a production spends a specific amount in an area and the local
government charges less in taxes usually by way of a refund.
At one time both Italy and Romania had excellent incentives. If I have
time later in the week I'll look up their film commission web sites for you.
