The Audiovisual Sector Fund – FSA

The FSA is a federal fund and a landmark in the support of the audiovisual industry in Brazil, since it invests in all stages and activities associated with the audiovisual sector, such as project development, production, distribution/commercialization, exhibition and infrastructure. In the areas of both audiovisual production and distribution, this fund sets out lines of action involving TV content production.


The FSA’s resources come mainly from CONDECINE (“Contribution to the Development of a National Film Industry”), a tax applied:

- to the broadcasting, production, licensing and distribution of film and video works for commercial purposes;

- to service providers that distribute audiovisual content, such as telecommunications companies and pay-tv operators.


The funds received from the FSA are partially recoupable from the film’s net proceeds. The percentage of recoupment from each film project depends on various factors, including overall budget, total amount received and the percentage participation of the FSA in the film’s budget. 


Currently the FSA has three programs, which are divided into lines: 


a)    PRODECINE: Dedicated to supporting the development of Brazilian films.


LINE 1: Feature film production
